There are some who believe in Friday the 13th as a bad omen. I like to think of Friday the 13th as a good time to get things done while everyone else is cowering under their beds, waiting for the sky to fall.

I just got through posting about the new Rapido RDC-1. If you are unfamiliar with this little cracker of a design enjoy this video from 1952 about the RDCs.

When we lived in Austin Texas we’d head on up to Dallas and Fort Worth every now and then so I could indulge my railfanning needs, which to be honest I never could really meet in Austin.
Of interest is the ex- B&M 6110 RDC-1 heading the consist of 3 RDC’s. TRE #2005, TRE #2006, and TRE#2007
Site 3 – US Budds (again from YouTube)
This much longer but just as interesting video takes a look at the US operators of RDC-1s including:
- Belfast & Moosehead Lake,
- Connecticut DOT/Amtrak (SPV2000’s),
- Metro North,
- Bellefonte Historical RR,
- North Shore Scenic RR (Duluth),
- Trinity Rail Express (Dallas area),
- Reading & Northern, and
- Cape May Seashore Line
Enjoyed a massive storm through Ballarat tonight, and now the temperature is dropping away. Hope the day has been great where you are.
