    I've seen the last one from the ground, but never from the air.

    Tacoma's Commencement Bay. Mount Rainier in the background. The river with all the silt is the Puyallup river.

    Was this in mountains?

    No, along the Platte river in NE. I suppose they are taking some of the locomotives back. I think the coal comes from the Powder River basin.

    I didn't see any rappers there:)

    What's the difference? One stores grain, and the other doesn't?

    Thanks for the explanation!

    Correct. Barns are for animals, cribs are for grain, more specifically eared (as in not shelled) corn. Sheds store machinery, loose grain goes in bins or 'flat storage'.

    Cribs are fast disappearing because they are basically useless any more, but were pretty ingenious. The sides were filled with eared corn, and the side walls are are ventilated. Air flows freely through the side walls and the center alley. Then there are storage bins above the driveway where loose grain like wheat, or later soybeans, can be stored. That is probably the biggest one I've ever seen. It's a beautiful photo of a neat building...I just had to give you some **** lol.

    Earlier this summer I flew along part of the Platte, in the middle of Nebraska. It seemed like it was 90% sandbars braided by 10% passages of shallow water. I thought there’s no way that it could be navigable with even a canoe.

    But airboats make sense. I hadn’t thought of that.

    I noticed the Tehachapi loop in the train photos. As far as the "spotter", in the industry, we called them "foamers" as they literally foam at the mouth at the thought of getting close to a train.

    I think the river is a little low this year.

    Here's another way to do it:

    Interesting.

    I have frequently heard “hay barn” and “hay shed.” Incorrect?

    Good question. Not much hay around here, but I have heard both of those. Usually barn in reference to a wood structure and shed to a metal pole building.
