|Despite being totally ancient & powered by leaky 19th Century steam cylinders ...
... Woodie is a pretty 'Hi Tech Guy' !
Hidden away inside his rusty ol' locomotives ...
... heavily disguised by the Zen Masters 'Industrial Apocalypse' look...
... are MICROCHIPS !!
Some of these mooodern electronic marvels, do need a 'breaking in' period.
Of course, down Dallas way, the traditional methods are still the most reliable.
Here, Woodie is 'breaking in' a new Texas-Instruments TL07x series microchip.
Holding on tight to the wiring is vitally important & needs both hands.
In clenched teeth is a pre-made 'Pliobond' traction-tire...
...ready to be lassooed around the new locos wheels.
It's dangerous work ... But the ore-cars must be kept on the move !
