    Here are some of my photos. This was train 8 at Shelby, MT and Dunkirk, MT, same day. I tend to use the last one as my profile picture on other platforms. 100_0070.JPG 100B0170.JPG 100B0172.JPG

    Is there any significance of the number "42" in regard to veterans, or is it just a coincidence that the two (powered) veterans units are 42 and 642?

    I honestly have no idea.

    Yeah. You’re missing the photo of 642 pulling into New Rochelle.

    I see it now. The lights sort of cover the numbers (the lights look "bright" on my phone).

    It's funny, I usually identify the special livery locomotives by the livery, rather than the number.

    Veterans have seen a lot of life, the universe, and everything.

    Yes, but what's the connection between that and the number 42?

    It’s a reference to “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams.

    I hereby assign it as summer reading. It’s a classic.

    You haven't read Hitchhikers Guide? You have not yet lived.

    You haven't noticed the gaping void in your soul where Douglas Adams ought to be?
