#1 Yuuuuppp.

Looks like the USA hasn't forgotten POTUS Teddy "Bully" Roosevelt after all???

What does the D ***NG-IT-WE-VOTED-FOR-YOU-OBAMA future OWG AFL-CIO, etc. get $$$-wise on these Projects from the BAMMER ADMIN, espec as per new Global/International-based New Union setups???

Or are they going to remain most unhappy wid the Bammer???

#4 gromky... no... they repaired them nearly as fast... somewhat different.

But yes, a fine new rail line is exactly what is needed, maybe throw in a telegraph link.

#5 And blow it up whenever you get "Holy" and upset.
That'll be once a week or so, Preferably when a fully loaded train passes over, loaded with women and children, I won't ride one.
