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::
