I actually saw 4014 and 844 on their way west to Ogden, but too far away to really SEE or get a pic, plus I was going east and only saw them for a moment. Wunnerful to see them chugging along again.

Given the stated water consumption and storage capacity, does that mean the locomotive could only operate for two hours?

Plus with starting with a full boiler, yes. That's why the girls at Petticoat Junction had to watch for every train coming through when the were bathing in the water tower.

In the redwoods, they are called sinkers. Recovery is controversial if remunerative.

I don't see a problem with digging up the logs from the peat, as long as they aren't fucking up the whole neighborhood.

In Northern California, the sunken redwoods (usually first growth) are in old creek and river beds that were first fucked over by damning them up for log ponds.
In some of them nature and fish have returned to some extent, only to be disrupted again by digging out the saturated old logs.

OK, I can see how digging up active waterways would be bad. That's different from logs buried in peat bogs.

I agree. Cases are only generally similar.

There is a counterpoint between this and the recovery of gliders elsewhere on the Cellar today.
Hundreds of miles apart, perhaps coeval.

At first, I thought some of them were wearing silly hats.
