    We have the same signs at various gathering points in the very large industrial facility where I work. If there's a release of toxic gas, everyone is to observe wind socks and choose an appropriate upwind site to gather at. Once gathered, names are immediately checked against a roster. A search is quickly conducted for anyone on the list who's not in attendance. Quite the big deal, but drills are conducted and it does make some sense if there's a man down somewhere. But conducting such in a plant with 600+ people on any shift is quite a challenge. During drills, there's always a lot of standing around so after reporting I usually wander down to the mainline to see what I can see. Caught this two years ago :) :

    More photos from Teague, Texas this past Wednesday. This was an old Burlington-Rock Island town.

    I have Burlington and BN orders from Teague, but nothing B-RI. For some reason I was thinking this was a FW&D town?

    Do you have a photo of Tomball? I have a B-RI order copied there, but have never seen a view of that building.

    How far from the tracks? I'm sure there are still very active rails close by?

    The tracks are right beyond the fence behind the caboose and depot. This shot was taken while standing on the platform deck behind the depot.

    I saw this sign while out biking. I wonder if this is where crews can snooze while waiting to go through Minneapolis Junction.

    And yet another sign. I stayed behind it like a good citizen. No really, I did.

    Except for foamers with bloated egos, (self-anointed royalty), who believe they should be able to go anywhere they wish and screw it up for everyone else. :(

    Just open as a display? Or actually going to serve a meal?

    That's beautiful, Keith. A snapshot in time, of a time when attention to detail was important - like clean linen on the tables, nicely set and aligned tableware, and a nice little vase with flowers at every table.

    That young lady in the green dress, on the left, seems to need some companionship. I'll bite the bullet and volunteer...;)
