The old SIRT pictures and information Margie Stephens Margie drsmrs@earthlink.net Heh. Heh. Heh. {Dis is my younga brudda writin' -- the one what I wuz talkin about earlier. Here's one thing he did.}
- from Margie's brother:
I once linked up about a dozen RR torpedoes under the overpass at Richmond Valley. A railroad torpedo is a
signaling device -- it goes bang! and tells the motorman that there's a train or workcrew ahead.

Mike Condax and I lined 'em up so it sounded like a machine gun. Then we put a couple together to they'd go off
at the same time.

Result:

Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang . . . B-O-O-O-M-M!!!!

Great little boy fun.
