Good Sunday morning! Left the windows open overnight, low of 63. Slept very well!

Cats loved it.

Was watching the Seattle Sounders/Portland Timbers match last night when the Timbers brought a new player in to the match. While the announcers called him a "European player" the info on the screen showed that he is from Noumea, New Caledonia. I chuckled at the thought that almost nobody else watching the match has a clue as to where that is...

Isn't New Caledonia technically a voting prefecture of Paris?

And a sunny and frigid Sunday morning tithe. Got the turn to Des done, so I'm off to clean off the driveway before tomorrow's 3-5" expected inches.

I don't know what prefecture it is considered to be in, but French possessions are considered to be part of France (as compared to US territories) so I can understand the announcers comments (besides I am sure the player in question used to play in one or more of the continental leagues).

Morning tithe... Still heavy rain, which we need. Plus Andre's still sinking things, which we don't need.

Poultryboy... you just wait till I get those A-bombs, then I'm going to barbecue your feathery butt.

No New Caledonia has a Territorial Congress, which is composed of members of the three provincial areas, and is mainly dominated by the ethnic Kanak movement. New Caledonia is then represented in the French Parliament by two deputies and two senators, who are also mostly Kanak I think. The only direct oversite from the French State is a High Commissioner, who is sort of a Governor.

Yes please T-man... I sent you an E-mail a few weeks ago?

Can you remember who's turn it is, as I've sort of got a bit messed up (don't say it)?

I didn't get any email from you since the one you sent about putting the game on pause, but it's definitely your turn.

It's really fun when you see one coming from the east carrying 5 to 7 Boeing 737 fuselages in from Kansas.

It's easy to forget how colossal those US freight trains get. What's that, 8000 tons? 10000?

Growing up in Virginia it was a normal deal to see 100+ car coal trains headed east on either the Chesapeake and Ohio RR or the Norfolk and Western RR.

I now live within a mile of the BNSF mainline between Seattle and Portland but we rarely see trains of that size on this stretch - though we see a lot of trains, just usually 30-50 cars long.

And they will probably slap on 3-4 helpers before they go over.

Each car can be rated as high as 100 tons usually. There are some exceptions up or down, but it is sufficient to do calculations. I live on the main line from Nashville, TN and Chattanooga, TN. Between those two points is a helper district and the tonnage of trains through here can be interesting, not as interesting as Stevens Pass, but this is the East, not the Cascades.

We have ES44 series, CW44AC, or other high HP AC locomotives. They work best on the grades with high tonnage. Usually two on a inter-modal or drag freight. On the loaded coal trains (90 cars), they usually have three locomotives and will pick up two helpers to get over the large hill they need to get over (locals call it a mountain, but the geologist in me refuses to recognize anything without deformation from uplift a mountain) it.

The loaded coal trains have 90 cars at 100 tons each, 9000 tons. The locomotives are 4400 HP and weight another 216 tons each, so, the loaded train with three engines and two helpers is just over 10,000 tons and being pulled by 22,000 HP!

Anyways, back to my rjopel turn...
