There's only two real players in the 1:1 scale model locomotive market...
EMD, owned by Caterpiller, and GE. Caterpiller has the free marketing
thing down, with the way they place giant logos on their big earth moving
equipment. Don't know that I'll ever buy a Cat machine, but certainly
think about them from time to time.
It has been proven with solid evidence that Californians can be talked
into buying anything. ;~)
I have see that grass, Kentucky Blue, is seems so delicate.
Along the Texas coast we have St. Augustine aka carpet grass. When
growing well an average yard's clippings will will easily fill a 45 gal
contractors bag with each mowing.
We used two tractors - one an over-sized mower by JD from JD sales floor
not a box store... And a JD PTO front end loader/fine cut and 4' Hog
cut mower for just about 3 hours today and got most of the yard. About
1/2 of it is St. Aug then there is Bahia (very tall V top grass) for
most of the rest. We have about a dozen other types here. All wild
with possibility the Bahia was for turning mud into grass or bailing for
We had St Au blooming with the yellow flowers and maybe 12" (tall) thick.
We have had a great amount of rain so it grows.
The town of St. Augustine lies maybe 30 miles to the east of us.
