10:50:42 <Betty> this is Beehive
11:13:34 <Ætna 💤> First completed 8-car new intercity arrived yesterday:
11:13:57 <Ætna 💤> still needs paint work done, but for testing it's good enough
11:14:30 <Ætna 💤> ducttape is where sensor wires enter the trainset
11:16:18 <Betty> nice train
11:17:40 <Ætna 💤> it is. It was given the nickname "Wasp" a few months ago, because of this very look
11:17:46 <Ætna 💤> I voted for "Bee" though :)
11:18:02 <Betty> :-D
11:20:19 <Ætna 💤> these nicknames are actually in line with previous nicknames. The most common double decker has the nickname "Bison", that last diesel train the NS had, had the nickname "Buffalo" and the one which most trainfans loved to bits (Mat'64) had "Monkey's Head" as nick. Though the latter was commonly referred to as "Dog's Head", nickname of its predecessor
11:21:41 <Ætna 💤> this is the completed exterior of the new train:
11:54:29 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵
11:54:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
11:55:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice train Jarno.
11:56:02 <Ætna 💤> thanks, Kevin
12:07:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here is a fun train picture from the Nevada Northern.
12:08:16 <Ætna 💤> that's two heavy smokers
12:09:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Alcos are noted for their smoke. I have driven the #5 from Ely to McGill.
12:14:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here is an interesting Austrian train.
12:14:34 <Ætna 💤> Yay! The musical locomotive!
12:30:45 <LindaGL> uh, Kevin's back!
12:30:51 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
12:31:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
12:31:52 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, Good time?
12:32:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. A bit busy but nice.
12:37:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I did find a train in St George.
12:37:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
12:38:49 <LindaGL> :)
12:54:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is the view out the back door of the Zion house.
12:55:05 <LindaGL> PF
12:55:12 <LindaGL> OR OF
12:55:38 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, do you rent it out?
12:55:38 <LindaGL> Not too shabby
12:55:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One of those Fs anyway
12:56:03 <Betty> great view
12:56:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have it rented to my Son right now.
12:56:08 <KorbenC> I bet alot of people (myself included) would pay to rent it for a week or two.
12:56:30 <LindaGL> KorbenC, me too
12:57:36 <Betty> we can make Kevin a landlord
12:57:50 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, does that rock formation have a name?
12:58:11 <Betty> is t the watchtower?
12:58:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The City has some rule about short term rentals. We are looking into what it is and our options. We own the vacant lot across the street too.
12:58:32 <LindaGL> nice
12:58:51 <KorbenC> If you need a tester :P :P
12:59:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it is the Watchman but not 100 sure.
13:00:35 <Betty> oh, meant the watchman
13:16:26 <Betty> I guess it is Bridge Mountain, not the Watchman
13:20:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am looking at the map but not much detail. It is across from the Watchman Campground but I think the Watchman mountain is a the other direction. That picture in pointing NE.
13:21:05 <Betty> yes, sure not the Watchman
13:21:53 <Betty> from google streetview it is Bridge Mountain
13:23:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The peak on the left is Bridge Mountain but I don't see a name on the one to the right.
13:30:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The Sentinel is the white one on the left.
13:47:45 <KorbenC> SO: Do we have any updates on when they are going to try to fix the cam again?
13:48:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I haven't heard.
13:58:42 <LindaGL> I was just looking at new reservations system for the park. They don't list the roosevelt lodge as an option.
14:15:20 <LindaGL> they still haven't cancelled my reservation for the Roosevelt in June.
14:16:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Maybe it is full
14:16:31 <KorbenC> Speaking of which, when do they open up reservations for 2022?
14:17:13 <LindaGL> KorbenC, should be may 1st
14:17:41 <LindaGL> It's a mad rush when it opens at 7am MDT (i believe)
14:18:26 <LindaGL> KorbenC, glad you reminded me need to put on my caledar
14:18:39 <LindaGL> *calendar
14:19:03 <KorbenC> :)
14:22:16 <Ætna 💤> Steamboat got water to the logger around 2200 MST on April 9
14:28:39 <Ætna 💤> Latest Constant trace gives me shivers. Probably natural variation, but still
14:34:23 <LindaGL> wow, can't believe how booked th epark is for the summer, usually there is something
