Kinkishayo has left

Elvis has left the building. The train has left. It has left for Washington DC.  It will be featured there for Jim Dougherty. He is the General Manager of Safety and Security in DC.  Then it will go to other cities. Charlotte, NC was the Show Case City, now on to others.

I haven't posted in a while, due to work, snow, ice, sleep, and you can imagine what else.  Kinkisharyo is a Japanese company that builds trains.  They have a prototype electric Streetcar that they will unveil here in Charlotte at the end of this week.  So I thought I would post some pictures of it in advance (kind of a no no).  It can charge under overhead power lines, for a mile or so, then operate without overhead lines on battery power for 4-5 miles.  This will allow it to travel through the business part of a city without the unsightly overhead lines, then charge in the outer terminal ends.

Start Another Year

Another year starts. Hopefully, this one will see me leave NC and start a new adventure.  I haven't posted in a while only due to nothing going on. When I went into my office this morning, my Geranium was in bloom, so I took a picture.  You can see better pictures in a book, but it surprised me. You had to have been there:) I also took a picture of Shiloh on the counter, and posted the one taken in August.
