    It's may of 2013 and of course I've found rain in the desert. Specifically at Barstow.

    I'm just getting over 'Rona, so nothing new this weekend.

    3 kinds of markings on CP boxcars at Portal, ND.

    Nowadays, such a grease slick would fetch an EPA inspector lickety-split... Back then, I understand this was common--was it accepted?

    Love the FP45, but what's with the UP SD40-2 behind it? Looks like an ex-Mopac unit?:cool:

    I never gave it a second thought, other than to step around it.

    It was very, very common. Nobody ever paid any attention.

    The garage where I learned mechanic work, at both original and second locations always just dumped their drain oils and other fluid. The motor oil was used to keep dust down on a driveway adjacent to the shop. Emptied oil cans were simply burned. Etc. Nobody paid attention, until the later 1960's, when change began.
