Alright BIG, MOUTH I've had it and this outlaw is going to go gunning. You are in for a verbal lashing bud.

I give you all kinds of openers and things you can come back on me about and all you do is reproduce the same old same old. You are so busy hearing your self talk that you aren't paying any dad-come-d attention to what others are saying. Your listening and reading skills are zip. Never mind the lousy leadership of the Outlaw Tour. I'ma sick and tired of riding around in some dumpy old school bus while you point out crags and crevices like they were ex-lovers. You won't feed me and the senior meals I buy don't fill me up. Hell, I was so looking forward to a freshly butchered cow and those delicious New Mexico Steaks fried up Mexican Style. Sick and tired of the stinch of you throwing up and expecting me to hose that old bus out. And where is everyone else that is supposed to be on this fricking tour? Heck, I want my ride back. The one Don came up with. At least that way I can put a end to this f-ing nightmare. I'll have my shmores and eat them too and most likely end up in a diabetic trance. You are piece of work and call me Spooky. I got to go I just heard the phone ring....cha-ching...is all I can think about.
Answer your friging e-mail. I'll be Big Bear DAMMED if you are going to ignore this mort..

LOLOLOL

Sorry to hear about your hospital visits. Hope all goes well. As far as the photos go, isn't it strange that low-nose geeps are beginning to look a bit..strange now.

Don,I will never tire of those Santa Fe Blues.

To all tuned in to the Outlaw tour. We are just getting started.

I suppose you are all wondering what came of my comments to the leader of the Outlaw Tour. Well, it wasn't easy and the shot out took place in an old Ghost Town, Steins, NM.. Turns out neither one of us is very good with a bow and arrow. I gave up on the tour and Big gave up on that old bus. I think it was the love flowers painted on the side that gave him the most frustration. Besides, two cowpokes wearing jeans, cowboy boots and hat... getting out of that dammed bus just didn't get the attention we wanted from the girls. Picture an arrow through Big's ten gallon cowboy hat and the other arrow stuck in my foot. More laughs and giggles then anything. We needed a street rod, some new apparel and a visit to the local E.R. in order to get the opposite sex's attention and catch their eye.

Big BNSF, hitch-hiked a ride with a truck driver he knew and I caught the first Amtrash train out of town... I had to wait three days to secure a ticket and for the train to arrive. Once on board we had dinner while sitting in a passing siding near Eloy, Az, supper some where near Aztec, AZ and then after a good nights sleep we woke-up dead on the track just west of Yuma, AZ. Waiting on some confounded construction at the Colton Crossing. Something about they had opened half the track up, putting it into service, to the top of the flyover. Thinking someone goofed up and a train trying to jump over it, crashed onto the Santa Fe tracks below. Oh well, somedays it just doesn't pay to ride the train.

Last I heard Big has gotten real tight mouth about the whole incident and has decided to think twice about inviting SpookyRick to any New Mexico Farmers barbecue. So old Spooky is on probation and is wearing a locator on his ankle. After all or in review... Don, doesn't like Shmores and I can't eat them.

Darn!

LOLOLOLOLOLOLMAO

Oh, and the Outlaw Tour. Stay tuned you are just about to learn how it works and what it is these scoundrels are up to. The tour starts at the nearest tracks with your, I did say "you're" camera in hand. Me I have to be a good boy for awhile and sit things out here.

Get out there take your shots of trains, planes, boats, horses, girls and share them here. Monkeys, only if it is a good story. If you don't have a story line...make one up. Do be sure you store your pictures on a reliable sight as this website can only handle a limited amount of memory.

Someone, needs to jump in and fill my temporary spot. You know the probation thing. In the meantime I will be bucking for the PR position. Heeheehee. Let's get trotting along as we got's all kind of work ahead of us and stories to tell.

Hmmm, I wasn't aware the my photos were "childish BS". If that's your feeling why not just bypass the post. If you were referring to someone else I might suggest that you make your remarks on your own post/topic instead of attaching them to mine. Seems that this forum is going downhill rather quickly for an extreme lack of interest. I have posted hundreds of photos on here and with very few posts from some other contributors, the forum is pretty much dead and goes for days without any action. Some of the other guys have tried to inject some humor in here to get things going but without much success. Then you come on here and refer to my post as "childish BS". OK, you'll get your wish as I won't bother to post further photos on here as it's pretty much just wasted time. A few years ago this forum was visited by some real pros like PhotoBob and others. Is it any wonder that they no longer bother to post here with remarks like yours?

Mr. Winslow,
I hope you'll reconsider stopping your posts. There are some who due to circumstance cannot be as active and contribute to the photos but appreciate the work of those who can. Your work, and that of others is a welcome glimpse of railroading not available otherwise. Please reconsider. Thanks, Pete

Hey Don, don't let one comment stop your posting here. I have some disagreements with some of the stuff posted here, but I'm not gonna stop. In America, everyone gets to run their mouth. I want you to keep posting--it's valuable to me.

What I think we have here is a moderator from another website who would like to play moderator over here. In which case we would all be kicked off. Still he has the right to speak up and attempt to redirect us back to talking trains. Pretty sure, He is referring to my comments as BS.

I for one have enjoyed the nonsense as this is about the only place you can do so without recrimination from the owners. One owner of a website said, "I only welcome here what I can tolerate" implying if he doesn't like it or you, you and your text are gone. So many of us end up walking around on egg shells, with a polite politically correct hammer hanging over our heads. If you understand anything about control issues it's... "Control Issues, way out in left field," and/or Out of control.

So relax, let's have some fun and don't let one stick in the mud upset the fruit basket.

A number of us Big BNSF, SirJeff, Don Winslow, TC, myself and others have done what we can to attract some attention and draw old timers back-in, as well as gain the interest of newbies.

Now this internal fighting amongest us isn't going to help us. But, who knows we might attract the attention of some sadistic rail fans. Wouldn't that be fun?

I'ma to short in the world to worry about what you think, or how I'ma impressing you and/or to be to concerned about winning a poopularity contest here. Quite frankly I don't give a $#!+ and have two words for those who would try to change me, this late in the game. Can you guess what they are? Right! Most used reference in the slang world to describe an old english wedding tax. See, there were Demogogs back then. Not grinning.

Use the "Ignore" feature and let's keep the Outlaw Round-up or was that Outlaw Tour ? Let's keep it going! Heck, most of are outlaws from other websites who couldn't take being treated like a child anymore. The exception being, we don't mind letting the inner child within us, out to play...once in a while. Heeheeheehawhawhaw Got to let the little guy loose, every so often.

What are we talking about? We don't call him little! LOL

Humm?

I thought I had posted comments similar to those above and now I can't find them. That doesn't mean, what I think it means...does it? At any rate you have my thoughts. It's not a win, win situation. You don't and aren't likely to go along with them but I will reserve the right to say what's on my mind and in a language that makes my position pefectly clear.

That or go back to being childishly polite. Please pass me the camera so I can take a picture of the choo choo train coming throught the tunnel. Ahh, that's my camera can I please have it back. You aren't going to give it back? Do you want me to tell your mommy? It was your camera to start with? GIVE Me The F...ing camera back before I break you nose you piece of horse...$#!+. Uh Oh, sorry about that. I quit being childishly polite back in kindergarten.

Don, the pictures you share here take me back to a time and era which is without a doubt, my favorite for railfanning the railroads. Thanks a heap...and that ain't no horse $#!+.

What you said here is somewhat correct, But what gets me now is TF will pull my post to cry baby Steve D, But they leave his comment up on this post if your going to pull crap off here then pull all of it......Thats how TF treats me for all the posts photos and laughs I have tryed to bring to this site, I am with Don and on this and wonder if I should even post any more photos on here....

Steve D is still a chicken shit , and I am still waiting to see what he posts.But I think he is just another low life, trying to mess it up for the real guys that have tryed to put something into this site.........

And TF should be thankful for all the guys here that try to keep it going...


Owell, Maybe you can get us fired up again rick, I know you have tryed..to keep us outlaws going.

Big BNSF and everyone else tuned in here,

Somewhat correct? What you doing picking and choosing? LOL

You don't have to agree with me, you don't have to be politically correct with me, you don't have to keep your language puritan clean for me, if that isn't enough you can ignore me and throw a childish tantrum in front of me. I DON'T CARE! What I like most is the bantering sabers we rattle, every so often. All done in fun

Edited add on: To Steve, Just something to consider. Most of the guys that have participated here are professionals by lively hood. Each responsible human beings, each acting on and looking out for our best interests. We aren't a bunch of fools. You or others might shirk away and think so but, that simply isn't the case. Read on.

Big, You did say TF is deleting your posts here...right? Then what did you say that was so out of line or OFFENSIVE. I've never seen you write something with a non-puritan (aka anti-puritian) twist Ie., FU written in it or other such expletives. Most of mine are still here and there's a few that might come under question...if I was on TB, RW, WP, NAB and others. They are quick to drop the ax. I've been booted off a website all because the owner wanted to control what I said. I was being supportive of a fellow model railroader and friend and he didn't like that. I responded by telling him I wouldn't let him or anyone else step all over my freedom of speech. WP, the owner booted me off. I haven't missed him....at all. Not grinning.

Still with Big, in reflection, I've yet so see you write something offensive. Controlling perhaps but that be it...grin. No crime in that, just an issue. Oh, well, not Owell, at first I thought you were talking about an old friend of mine...kind of grinning.

Another edited add on: Why is it so necessary for us to hang on to Puritan values? What happened to "Don't fence me in, Don't Tread On Me, Give me Freedom or give me Death". Aren't we working backwards to a primitive relegious base? One that wants to take our rights and privileges away. Sending us on yet another witch hunt. Just some fodder for those who study history and like to analize things as in a "Think it through" frame of mind.

I might as well toss this in: On the flipside we have folks moving toward taking from the rich and redistrupting the wealth to the poor. Socialism...plain and simple and it hasn't worked any where it's been tried. So, why here and why now? You need those with the ability or know how to work Capitalism, the same folks who create jobs and do indeed distribute the wealth through those who work for them. Might I add that was what sparked the Industrial Revolution, as many have referred to it. Just my two cents and that's getting harder to come by.

It's not my job to keep everyone stirred up and coming back to share in the fun. That only happens when a group of "Outlaws" get together and make it happen. There's an old saying, "You can't be a leader unless those who are following, allow you to lead." Ask any football coach, ask the Mr. III, rookie quarterback for the Washington Red Skins.

Not for publication to the massess. I have a freind that's looking into starting yet another website where we rail fanneners can get together and say what's on our mind without the fear of reprisal or recrimination. Not sure yet what it will cost us. But WE are looking into it. So, stand by. Just don't share it with others then trusted friends. We'd like to keep it under wraps for awhile. Grin. Till then...

Take what you want from here and discard the rest.

It's still free to talk trains on TrainFoamers.
