    We have been working on restoring an old Velocipede that was donated to the Texas-Railroading-Heritage-Museum by the KCS. Put it on the spur leading into the storage lot where the rail cars are presently kept.

    Good exercise! Sounded like the crossing signals were activated? Oops?

    Yeah, I pointed out where the insulated joints were. He just had to see if it really would set them off.

    I remember coming up to a crossing and the gates and bells would activate and no train where was the train then you saw it a putt putt we had to stop and wait for one of those things.

    Dunno why he'd think that way. Anything electrically bridging the rails would set them off.
