It's mostly railfan b.s. rather than a substantive discussion of the industry and what's going on. The questions and comments are often too simplistic. There might be some merit in hearing what might...

I think Stan and Bryan have reached the same point I have (particularly Stan, since we're about the same age). Like Stan, at this point in my life, I don't need any self-inflicted stress, so I find...
