Soooo...

I got released from hospital a week ago.
But I could not type anything on the keyboard because my fingers felt all mushy.
Recovery goes slowly, very slowly according to the doctors it can take months or more.

Of two weeks in hospital I spent 4 days in reanimation because parameters were off.
I got the O2 permanently as my saturation was that bad. My lungs got damaged,
so I am pretty quickly out of breath now. They will recover but not in a few days.

I want to thank my wife for being that tough to look after our son even having had,
high fever, weakened also, and not knowing when she would be able to see me again.
My son made a drawing I looked at everytime I got awake.  Kept me from losing myself.


Thanks for advice about the disused track. I put in an old caboose that serves as a shed,
for the people doing the switching in that area, now in there instead of the tank car.

Si. That car that keeps me busy, is a '67 Mustang coupe hardtop.

Hi Alain,

To help speed your recovery,
how about a photo of another "abandoned" car?


This one was seen at Yoho back in 2013,
while passing on the Rocky Mountaineer train on the way from Vancouver to Banff.

Sometimes you get lucky and catch stuff after you have a closer look at your photo.





The end of track sign is on a stake beyond the pile of ties in the photo.

It looks like CP has left flatcar 404886 loaded with some supplies,
out beyond the current end-of track in a siding at Yoho.

Probably the only way it will get out of Yoho will be in bits by road??


Enjoy and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
We'll still be here when you are good to go on the keyboard again.

When I was a boy (early Sixties) I traveled through Northern Italy,
with my parents and our first car - a Ford Anglia.

In the Dolomites the narrow gauge (950 mm) "Dolomitenbahn" had just been abandoned,
and apparently communities along the line, immediately paved over tracks on public roads,
marrooning numerous freight cars along the line. 

Still remember those forlorn little boxcars in the small villages.

Thanks for the kind words.

Recovery goes slowly but does not hold me back in the house or garden even if slowly but I just cannot sit still.
Ok, cutting a flower takes 5 minutes, taking out the trash the 10 meters from the house to the bin feel like 100.


I will post some progress pics of the Baldwin in the scratchbuilding Forum.

Nice pic you got there of the abandoned car.

Back in the day when I was 5 Sundays we went walking mostly where old mines were.
There were always tons of rolling stock around abandoned and even in service,
even if just for a very short period but I was always fascinated by those machines.
The looks of those had something magical, spooky and sad, at least for me.
