    “Yeah, the bartender wanted to put the forsythia over in that corner… But it was too heavy for him to lift.”

    Well, certainly not when they’re awake!

    Unbeknownst to most, Ming’s brother Bing became Warlord of Pluto, and stopped using his given name when people kept getting the two of them mixed up. ;-)

    OK, maybe Rover didn’t know about the G.A.S. RR, but with everybody (as shown over the last week) diligently searching for an operating steam locomotive, somebody should have known about it (unless, as jollyjack says, it didn’t exist until this week).

    daJellyBelly is right, and the shop crew is going to be really upset.

    I’m not so sure about the smoke killing everyone (probably would need a LOT more burning tires than will be used to get the engine to a fuel supply). And the tires go in the firebox, not the boiler (the engine crew, being polite, don’t bother to correct him since they get the idea).

    It depends. An engine designed to burn coal might be able to make steam by burning wood, but oil-burners typically spray a continuous supply of oil into the firebox. Converting a coal-burner to use oil involved a major rebuilding.

    Maybe. I don’t know where there would be an operating 4-6-0 east of the Mississippi except for the East Tennessee & Western NC, and their engines are 3-foot gauge, so would not be running loose on some standard-gauge tracks; New Hope & Ivyland has one, but it’s numbered “40”; and Steamtown’s steamers are all currently undergoing repair or rebuilding.
    The number “952” on this engine does limit the possibilities.

    No, it’s a small airport. As evidenced by the fact that the hyphen and the S fell of the “Gates 4-6” sign and haven’t been replaced. I was actually more interested in the fact that G & R are really going to South America, and that it wasn’t all a terrible mistake as they were really going to work at the free clinic in Peru, Indiana.

    @everyone
    Applying Occam’s Razor allows us to deduce that Gunther has obtained reasonable fluency in Spanish, via one means or another, because otherwise we would have heard him (or someone) exclaim “But I [you] don’t speak any Spanish!” by now.
