  • Proof that it is a "Boob Tube"

    Hey guys, I made the television news yesterday. I had no idea, somebody at work told me today.

    1:00 -1:04 into the newscast is me, close up and then they zoom out. I am kneeling, guy on the right, as I assemble a "truck". These trucks are what the car rides on.

    Nice.

    Safety goggles, check.
    Gloves, check.
    Knee pads, check.

    Hard hat, check.

      Cool. Yep, know about railroad trucks.

      Maybe before your time but the company I worked 30 years for made trackwork, wheels, brake shoes, etc. Originally known as Abex (IC Industries), the railroad products group got sold off to ABC rail. Used to work in the Friction Materials Research lab where we developed shoes and disc pads.

          No, no... A car takes 68 days, start to finish. We finish 2-3 a week.

          I was in the auto industry for many years, started by making seating for the Ford F-150 in 1986. :) Ended up Tier 1 & 2 supplying Ford, GM, Chrysler, Jeep, Renault, Honda and Acura over the years.

          These railcars are infinitely more sophisticated than passengers cars. $2.5 million each speaks to that! At 85 ft long and up to 144,850 pounds, there is sooo much electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, piping, etc. Also, WiFi, vacuum bathrooms (to take away odors :biglaugh:), 120V outlets, bike hooks and a projected 40 year life span.

            Once production is at full output the cars will be delivered at a rate of ten per month.
            You guys just storing them up making them wait, or are you only getting 2-3 a month when you should be doing 10?!?!?!?!??! Wiki never lies!!!!

              You're totally famous now :woo:

              By the weeks end you'll have at least two models at your beck and call.

                Holy crap! Can I show up at your workplace dressed like a hobo with a napsack? :raspberry:
                But seriously where are the 18" subs?
                I shaved my balls for this :salute:

                  This doesn't mean I'll forget who my friends are. For instance, I'll still let you buy me a beer and can offer you a job washing my cars! :sly:

                  As long as you are driving one of my freshly washed cars and have beer. :toast:

                  Good idea! This thread is more about the trains than myself. I will mention this to management, I think that Chase 18" subs should be included!

                  What do you guys think, sealed or vented?

                    It's a deal.
                    In that space I would go with vented just for the output. Hit their guts hard so they have to use the onboard bathroom.

                              I have been hanging around here too long. After reading the thread title in Happy Hour, I just assumed it was another Hottie Thread.

                              And here it was a bunch of guys playing with trains! :biglaugh:
