My Train Wheels Moved? | From the Train 190913



I was able to actually get some information on what was happening with the Train today.

Alright, so I've said in the comic that it's fully tilted up and it is. And I noticed today if you look over at the back that's where the wheels used to be. So I'm like... I stop by today and I'm talking to the guy and I'm like, How? What happened? How is... they're in the middle now?

I guess they can slide the wheels on it?

So I guess what they can do is they tilted it up on pistons and they've got... Like a beam? I don't know. They got something propping it up and they were able to slide the wheels over. I didn't know you could do that on a train. So that was kind of interesting.

They're digging under it.

And over by the back, they are digging. So they had to take even more track away which is why they had to move the wheels. So now I really can't go in there there's track missing and it's at an incline. So that was interesting.

The guy I talked to kept asking if I needed to get on there and I'm like, Jesus no! I don't need it to fall. But they did move it at least.

And they got a bunch of wiring happening and it looks like they're getting the plumbing underneath. I see tubes under there. So they're gonna be able to hook up the sewage soon.

Might not be until October now.

But the guy that I talked to, he said that it really does look like it's not gonna be till October now that they're gonna be done.

Oh, and do I need a haircut? I was riding my bike before shooting this. Seriously, do I need a haircut? I'm not entirely sure.

Anyway, so yeah that's... I'm still not in there.

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca

Just leaving.

I was wondering why he kept looking at me strangely.
