    That famous quote attributed to Einstein, who did not actually originate it: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results".

    It might help some if our schools actually taught relevant world history. But they do not.

    I can't wait for the Big Boy to come through Idaho Country. Most likely next spring.
    It's been fun here on TrainBoard and I've enjoyed the camaraderie with all of you.
    You can keep this thread going or not. It won't matter to me.
    Have fun.
    BarstowRick Out.
