    Default Cat saves train line in Japan

    See, having a cat is beneficial, this one saved a train line that was going bankrupt in Japan.

    I think Marty should correspond with him

    I wonder how many other cats are out there, saving the world (or organizations)

    Marty did get me up to the summit again two weeks ago. I really wanted to meet him and I was lucky enough to do so, I hope he's enjoying the toys and treats I left for him...

    Animals are Great, better then some people that I know.

    If I could figure out how to keep my cats in a pack, I'd take them out for a hike. But they don't like each other, so that would be one noisy walk through the woods!

    I could swear somebody had photos of trains on this site, but I can't find it so I decided to post these here.

    Photos from the maglev train in Shanghai. We hit a top speed of 268mph. There's only one problem with a train that goes that fast...the ride ends way too soon.

    No wonder you get up Tuckermans Ravine Headwall so fast.

    you know when i was up there last time i thought i saw a tunnel boring machine on the way up through n Conway . i think they are digging a tunnel from the base to the top so they dont have to worry about the snow on the road

    and that will be the train they will use
