“No, NO!!! Not until I get a picture of the old one!!!”
Ahahahaha! That’s fantastic!
Don’t forget the foamer who buys it for 600 bucks because it’s a 1917 Westinghouse design and adds it to their collection, even though it doesn’t work!
Going to shoot this thing today before they rip it down in a few weeks.
Farewell Solari <3
Guess what? I Haz a Choo Choo Train Problem has an actual website now @ ihazachoochootrainproblem.com!
All the action’s gonna be going down there from now on - although, I may pop in here from time to time to reblog some cool, semi-relevant stuff that we all know Tumblr is good for.
Also, be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed :)
Yes, I’m a dork that takes a picture. Of a picture. Of a train.
Or I’m just sitting in my car bored as shit. You decide.
Spotted at Whole Foods. Of course I bought it.
I originally saw the Boston one, and was like “WTF, why no New York one?”
Upon digging deeper on the shelf - which was an easy to miss end cap, I found it! Anything above 103rd St in Manhattan is chopped off, as is anything south of Brooklyn Heights. Half of Queens and all of the Bronx are missing…but I had to have it. $15 for a metal water bottle - sure. I’ll actually use it at work, and it will give me something to stare at when bored at work/plotting some sort of New York adventure at work. (Trust me, my job is repetitive enough to do on auto pilot - and my mind wanders freely…m’kay?)
They have bottles for several transit systems - Boston, DC, San Francisco, New York (obviously), and so on. They’re sold at this link - and like I said, I found mine at Whole Foods in West Hartford, CT so maybe give your local Whole Foods a try.
And unlike the flimsy $7 aluminum water bottle I used to have - this sucker is thick walled. Which is nice.
I fixed the Disqus comment system after breaking it many moons ago. If you click the arrow next to posts - or “comments and reactions” on a specific post - you can leave comments.
Yay! BTW that’s supposed to be a huge hint to, ya know…do it.
Also - if you hate Tumblr (and I know a lot of people do, I’m too lazy to set up a legitimate blog - plus being on the platform does at least help drive readers here…so sue me), do feel free to click here and add the feed to your feed reader of choice. I’m a Google Reader addict myself.
Anyhoo: new readers, be you Tumblr followers or otherwise…thanks for humoring me and looking at my train-related drivel :)
