      Haha Rooz, I thought the same thing. I figured I must have missed something. But it made me laugh when I saw the funny face.

      Glad to see Rooster doesn't look all "birded out" since he was in California!

      It's an impostor! That looks like a Case tractor and the real Rooster only operates a Russell tractor!

      He came out west last year but didn't visit the ER&I RR.  If he ever shows up again, he will be BBQ'd for sure!

      Rooster said:

      So the word on the street was Rooster would be coming back home to the CVRR for a brief inspection of the railroad while touring the east coast. His friends were excited about this and hired a band for his arrival. They all stood impatiently waiting while the band played.

       

       

       

       

      Then suddenly someone shouted "Here comes the train"!!!

       

       

       

      The band jammed loudly as the train came to a stop at the Washington St. Station.

       

       

       

      Holy crap beckoned Daffy I can't believe your here. You look good Rooster and it appears like you have been working on your tan as well.

       

       

       

       

      They all stood and chatted for awhile awaiting Bobby the Boxcab and the CVRR's work crew to arrive and take him for an inspection of the CVRR as there have been some major trackage realignments going on. After about 1/2 hr the crew finally showed up and Rooster climbed aboard.

       

       

       

       

      SO LONG ROOSTER they shouted as the inspection train and crew pulled away!

       

       

       

       

      First stop was checking to see how the trackage looked for the installation of a new double wide bridge. All looks good here says Rooster

       

       

       

      They traveled down the line and across the viaduct to inspect the placement of a bridge that was moved. Along the way Rooster screamed STOP! He couldn't believe his eyes as the CVRR had it's very first switch installed!

       

       

       

      They proceeded across the newly placed bridge when one again Rooster shouted STOP!

       

       

       

       

      The train came to a grinding halt in a nick of time as Friar Fred was standing on the edge of the bridge getting ready to jump!!

       

       

       

      Rooster jumped out of the crew car and walked down to talk some sense into Fred. "Father Fred" shouted Rooster "what in the hell are you thinking"!  Friar Fred replied " Rooster I'm quite tired of seeing bridges without the proper bridge ties and guardrails and this one is the final straw for me"!

      Rooster then said " Ok Fred I'll tell you what, if you hop on my train with me I will have them drop us off at a local Speak Easy and then we can walk in town to the local House of Ill Repute then perhaps you can forget about the bridge?

       

       

       

       

      Friar Fred agreed and away they went. But first Rooster wanted to stop and have a talk with God about his experience with Fred and ask for forgiveness for what he was about to do. So he did!

       

       

       

       

      Later that afternoon they arrived at the Speak Easy and Shawnette came out from the secret entrance with some good cold beer to greet them and take them inside.

       

       

       

       

      After a few hours at the "drinking depot" as the locals called it, they were headed up the tracks and off to the Brothel. Friar Fred was running so fast Rooster couldn't keep up. I can't believe Fred left me all alone in this tunnel exclaimed Rooster.

       

       

       

      Rooster finally arrived at the house only to find Fred pounding impatiently on the front door! Stop!! said Rooster: they will never open the door unless you give the secret "Cock a Doodle Doo"

       

       

       

       

      Fred and Rooster left the house and headed into town. Fred had broken the toilet there and he promised Madam Viggiano that he would return with the parts and repair it for her. They stopped at Eberly's Lumber which was right up the street but they didn't have the parts Fred needed. However they did spot the gorilla that has been on the loose in the area ever since Dave Hollywood Marconi wrecked his circus train in town and allowed it to escape.

       

       

       

      So they headed up the street to the local True Value where they acquired the necessary parts to repair Madam Viggiano's toilet.

       

       

       

      As they were returning to the brothel Rooster looked at his watch and said "Holy Crap" I need to get back to the station stop as the CVRR business train is picking me up and taking me into the city where I will jump another train and continue my journey. So Friar Fred accompanied Rooster back to the station where he boarded OCS #2 and headed out.

       

       

      As Rooster sat quietly on the train he wondered where the next train will take him?

       

       

       

      A thread resurrection lasting more than 4 hours should be consulted a proper railroad Priest,Padre,Friar,Father

       

       

      Happy Easter guys !

      He does get around.  Luckily he has his trusty pack of speedy tortoises to get him there.
