Halloween Hijinks
Author: WrongWayMurphy

We had a Halloween run day a couple weeks ago.  I had recently acquired this doodlebug and trailer
so myself and another bloke took it out for a spin.  

Be afraid ..... be very afraid.

There is a prototype for almost anything.
A friend who had worked in the yard office of the SP's "Shops" terminal at Los Angeles told me about the frog.
One day a clerk showed up in a full frog costume, including face mask.
The famously hot-tempered Terminal Superintendet, George De Lillis, came into the building and started yelling at him.
He replied "Rebbit".
George was temporarily speechless, and walked away.
You can't make this stuff up.
This would be in the 70s or early 80s.

George's fuse was so short his powder went off before the match was lit.
