Sounds like those are items one might find in a Unit. I am not totally against climbing in Units or even stealing a safety vest ( I actually have owned a few RR vests & have a CSX helmet at home.) But if someone stole my coffee mug I may be really pissed off & think every hobo passin thru is the one who snagged my prized cup.

Just my two cents. Im not saying you didn't get them kicked down to you or anything since many RR workers are cool as hell & have been known to kick down cash, rides, food etc.. "If it walks like a horse, sounds like a horse & looks like a horse ; its probably not a Zebra.

Peace

I doubt someone left their coffee cup clean in a pusher. I've got a corbin division coffee cup that a worker gave me. All the people I've met who work for the railroad have more company branded shit than they know what to do with.if he was trying to sell it id be skeptical, but it seems pretty likely that someone just gave him this stuff

I've ridden plenty o'power and other than the regular stuff have found:
A pbj sandwich (which I ate)
Reverser handles (which I left)
...can't ever recall ever finding any personal items or anything else of the smallest value.

Lol, well that was the most obscure stupid rating I have ever gotten. To each his own I guess. Since it wasn't given on CSX or Selkirk I guess it doesn't apply to the orig thread "Selkirk" that I have contributed to plenty in the past. Seeing as the thread had evolved into RR trinkets & treasures I thought it fit. Peace be with you ::angelic::

Seems like I keep getting flak for this post. UPDATE: I now personally have a csx vest & angle head csx flashlight that I acquired; last time thru Selkirk.


PS For all of you trolls out there hating on me & my style. Please Go & throw yourself under the wheels.::finger::

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$45.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $45.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $45.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $45.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Im securing a squat tonight that should be a good long term squat. Also im playing a show tonight.
Just go to Barcelona and got lost on my way to my hostel. I walked into a corner store and asked for directions, and a guy who didn’t speak any English or know anything about me pointed to where i need to go and gave me a sticker that said “Everyone hates the police!”. I’m definitely in the right place😄!
Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
