    above is an image showing bottles of water supplied by railroad companies to their workers. i have been studying the different types of bottles for a few years now. this is a very exciting time because in the last year, the style of the bottles have changed drastically (as shown in the above image).

    today, my friend and i found a surplus of railroad water bottles of all kinds inside an old caboose. needless to say, we were VERY excited!

    hahahahahahahahahaha I use to load the local frig at the yard, and steal(borrow) like 3 boxes to myself!!! Funny how the railroads stress health, and yet they supply their workers with shots. A hot day in roseville you need like 10 of those.

    laugh all you want....

    homeboy obviously is deeply interested in railroad culture and is smart enough to recognize history(what you might think is junk)on the tracks, in a caboose, old engine, etc. and turn around and flip it on ebay... thats not stupid, thats smart....

    takes notes on this thread you might learn a thing or two..

    nice work nel.

    one mans junk...

    i always dreamed that i'd just walk the tracks over by the local crew change spot...pick up all the old empties (there's hundreds) and dump em all infront of thier front door back at the office. while i do smoke a lot of herbs i'm not that big of a hippy though
