    Personally I always thought it should be "Any old Merlot in the storm" because who likes Port? . . .Nasty stuff.

    Anywho; how many of you have a port on your layout?
    Be it ocean going, great lakes even a river port, heck Tulsa is a port and its over 750 miles from the gulf.

    I'll start off with this view that shows the dock with two track located below the traveling crane as well as a string of grain hoppers being unloaded at the rail-to-sea storage silos.
    Meanwhile a Tidewater Southern RS-1 can be seen positioning a string of cars on the approach tracks to the Ferry Apron. Note the two old flats with some old plate steel weights used as idler cars.

    A better view of the tug. So far I haven't named it, I keep trying for something clever and pun-worthy.

    Does anybody know the origins of that crane? I bought it already assembled at a train show and I've never seen another like it.

    One of the primary reasons I wanted a port was so I could include this kit. Now it has been so many years since I built it I can't remember who's kit it is.

    Moose whole-heartily agrees! And, Moose is building two ports on da MT&P layout. Neither are done yet, though...

    I prefer single malt Scotch in a storm, or anytime, really... I'm not a flat-earther, so I'm convinced it's always 5 o'clock somewhere!

    And boy howdy, them Glen dudes sure got spirit!

    When you consider that a significant portion of early settlers in Kentucky and Tennessee were from Scotland, and brought their Whiskey (aka Whisky) making know-how with them to the region and it's limestone springs, it's no surprise that Tennessee Whiskey and Kentucky Bourbon are excellent choices.

    If I want a mixed drink, it's either a Margarita, or a Jack & Coke 90% of the time.
