    That pile of trash is taken out of areas devestated by Hurricane Sandy.

    Pretty much the entire contents of peoples homes.

    I was by here last weekend and I could have sworn it was 5 times this size !
    Here is a lousy picture taken on our way to get building supplies.

    I am sure they sort through it to seperate it and move it on to other locations.

    OH, and a clue or two.

    That's the place Doc.
    I know it isn't real exciting but it is now part
    of our Garden State history, sad to say.

    Thanks Barry.


    Leaving the Sandy theme, the new tag is an olde village inn that served as the Continental Army's GHQ during the Battle Of Monmouth.- a pretty large engagement that pitted 10,000 British troops against 11,000 Americans.

    New Tag!

    [​IMG]

    This is the only remaining McMyler Coal Dumper in New Jersey, or what's left of it. It lifts the whole train car up 20-30 ft and then tips it upside down so the contents pour into a funnel and onto a waiting barge. Here is a detailed model someone put together.
