Railfanning. Serious. Business.

Oh, no time is stated by the DD reports, I just look at my computer’s clock when they’re heard. The Plymouth sub DD’s still do a "greeting", the Grand Rapids sub had turned off their "greeting" feature over a year ago
@ Tom49801 « Tue 8:54:54 pm »
That’s my guess and he tagged it for 8:31pm which was probably the DD’s "greeting" because I didn’t hear the full DD report until 8:35pm
@ ~Z~ « Tue 8:53:21 pm »
wonder how he even heard the time for the DD126.. actually listened to the online scanner feed perhaps
@ Tom49801 « Tue 8:49:55 pm »
yeah, and he didn’t even listen to the DD 126.3 report, just copied & pasted my original DD 104.3 post & changed the time & mile post. The reported footage was different for each site. He erased it & I deleted my portion of jumping on his case.

so micah copied tom’s defect detector notes and just pasted them for when d705 hit the next defect detector? weird...
@ ~Z~ « Tue 8:40:20 pm »
whoa, that’s pretty awesome

He just walked into the lounge. Sat down across from me and said hi im gary and we started talking.

Things are really down but he is a man with a plan.

Well, You might be able to see your house on the news one day
@ ~Z~ « Tue 4:09:29 pm »
i gotta assume it’s the funeral for someone who died in some gangland shooting.. probably not protestors.
@ AARR « Tue 3:40:41 pm »
Those are peaceful protestors ~Z~
@ ~Z~ « Tue 3:24:44 pm »
neat.. more issues around my neighborhood. 2 days ago, a house about 3/4 mile away got shot up, no one injured at least. about 3 hours ago, i read this from 1 mile away: "Report of 20 to 30 people fighting in parking lot of Matthyse-Kyper-DeGraff funeral home at 44th and Kalamazoo." Then 2 hours ago at a cemetary nearby "Garfield Park Cemetery - Family fight at gravesite service. One person cut with razor."

Last time I was at Delray, many, many moons ago, the locals were stripping a car on S Dearborn Street. As long as you weren’t bothering them, they weren’t going to bother you.

Still many shots to get though. :)

Fewer trains. Branchline by branchline going bye bye. 6 Axle engines basically looking the same. Only a handful of paint schemes left. Hate to be so down, but just the reality.
@ Talk « Tue 8:38:14 am »
I’m in it mainly for photography. But I agree completely
@ ConrailDetr​oit « Tue 8:37:00 am »
And Unfortunately, railroading is getting to be less and less awesome. I dont enjoy this hobby as much as I used to and have found other hobbies or now travel to other places that have something interesting. Including Delray, once the tower is gone.

Like anywhere and even in this corona world, all you can do is what you can do. Be aware and on your toes no matter where, including in school. But you have to draw your safety line in a reasonable spot. If not, its all nonsene
@ ConrailDetr​oit « Tue 8:33:58 am »
I have been to Delray many many many times in the last 8 ish years. And did an overnighter there once as well.
@ Talk « Tue 8:33:16 am »
@ Talk « Tue 8:32:57 am »
Good advice! I’ll definitely do that. Appreciate it :)

If one of your classmates bring in a gun and shoots up the classroom, you are knee deep and maybe too late
@ ConrailDetr​oit « Tue 8:31:18 am »
Here is an Important Life Lesson especially in today’s world with how the media and our social media instant information culture works: Go off your own personal experience and observations. And if you do not have such experience or observations, talk to those who actually go to these places to get a more informed perspective and opinion.
@ Talk « Tue 8:28:15 am »
Nothing, Doors are unlocked most the time... I go off what I hear. Rather not be knee deep when it is too late
@ ConrailDetr​oit « Tue 8:26:19 am »
Does your High School have metal detectors like every Detroit Public School does? If not, im surprised you trust the safety there. Given how many school threats and shootings have occurred in recent years
@ ConrailDetr​oit « Tue 8:25:00 am »
Talk; you will be just fine and still alive at Delray. Its funny how people who say negative things about the area are the ones who are never ever there
@ Talk « Tue 8:22:46 am »
I’d rather stay near Holland

did manage a 5 mile walk though. From the high school into Lake Odessa, around town, and return to the school. While my oldest daughter was at marching band practice.
