Project 313 – Post No. 091

I’ve been linking to previous posts as a substitute to my long-winded tirades against something or other.

As I’m writing this almost a week ahead of publication, I’ve not heard any complaints and I have no reason thinking anyone would welcome me getting back to spouting opinions. 

Ergo, another link to a past post is in order. To be sure, this is actually fun for me as I have enough posts that it’s difficult for me to have a firm grasp on the totality of my awesomeness . . . meaning, there’s always more awesomeness to discover. 

To wit, THIS post is an example of such. 

And now, the photo:

Again, that’s in Savannah, Georgia, at their Train Museum. Actually, that’s in a different museum but still peripherally associated with the Train Museum. It’s the Roundhouse Museum and you can read about it HERE.

From the above link:
Baldwin built Ten Wheeler (4-6-0) type Central of Georgia #403 is on display inside the Coastal Heritage Society museum.

It lacks its tender, which is apparently stored at the Roundhouse Museum.

Built in 1905 for the Stillmore Air Line as 
#103 (later merged into the Wadley Southern), the locomotive was sold to the Sylvania Central in 1920. In 1954 when then owner, Central of Georgia, abandoned the railway it was renumbered #403 and leased to the Talbotton Railroad where it operated until 1957.

A coal burner, #403 weighs 97,000 lbs, and has 56″ drivers and 16″ x 24″ cylinders. Operating at a boiler pressure of 180 psi, it delivered 16,780 lbs tractive effort.

There’s something about traveling by train that attracts me . . . except, it’s not cheap nor reliable. At least, not here in the US. Actually, let me rephrase that; somewhat reliable, expensive, and because it’s underfunded as a transportation method, probably not as safe as it could be. Still safe, mind you, but with problems. 

The cartoon today speaks to many old people . . . but they’re not listening. 

. . . I shouldn’t say much more as I’ll eventually get there myself . . . 

So, here I got to thinking about multi-layers amoebas and whether they ever get sick . . . specifically, if they get Chicken Pox. Also, I wondered, does Chicken Pox come in different colors that’s dependent on the color of the skin? Well, I just had to draw what a Multi-layer Amoeba with Multi-color Chicken Pox. It’s interesting, I’ll give it that. 

Multi-layer Amoeba with Multi-color Chicken Pox

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    Totally enjoyed the nostalgic voyage on the Mallard via video! It’s still my lifelong dream to travel the the British Isles by train. I’ve always enjoyed our train trips in Europe (lots of stops and lots to see). The trips out west (from Chicago) were long (which I liked), but going through the Great Plains can be rather monotonous.
