Out of Time .... Baby, You're Out of Time

You don't know what's going on
Youve been away for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine
Youre out of touch, my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
You are all left out
Out of there without a doubt
Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

You thought you were a clever girl
Giving up your social whirl
But you can't come back and be the first in line, oh no
You're obsolete my baby
My poor old-fashioned baby
I said baby, baby, baby you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out
Out of there without a doubt
Cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

I said, baby, baby, you're out of time.
Yes, the above lyrics by the Glimmer Twins will apply, just wait.

Here are two of the old Mountain Laurel RR tugs procured by the L&D RR in the dim past.

{Thing improved for this poor soul as he ends his soliloquy}
And {now} I'll be happy like a newborn child.
And, so it would be for L&D 1852
.
I found her all bright and shiny in her new L&D RR uniform.
The loss of her original outfit was sad, but the fact that the lady 
has new cloths means that she is ready to continue the party.


 I wasn't sure about the "black stripes" but they are part of the getup and have been.
Nothing happening, I left New Iberia and retreated to 
Camp Pratt where it appears potential road work may commence.
I'd get permission from the Spirits of Soldiers Past, first.
For those not knowing, Camp Pratt was a Confederate training installation and prisoner stockade.
I've used it for years as a perch and rest area. The facilities are primitive but adequate.
Then I heard  Union Pacific's 7505's engineer exchanging mournful rhetoric with the dispatcher.
It seems that all of the signals from Berwick west  were still red. 
Evidently, with permission, a train can go against a red signal, but very slowly.
I had time to get to east New Iberia and set  up for a big time train shot, one
that has not happened in a while, maybe a week.
The old Missouri Pacific right of way at  Nelson Canal Rd. would be perfect. 


Looking east. Nope. No train yet.  I would leave and venture out to find it.
Yes, she was crawling.

Time lapse was set at 2 minutes.

Moving to Central Drive, her pace was maddeningly  slow.
The signal problem persisted.
I couldn't handle it so I went looking for the little Missouri Pacific yard house which a contact had told me still existed.  After motoring back onto a private driveway and identifying myself as a reporter for the Baton Rouge Advocate, I took the shot while my awed audience observed my professional technique of almost falling off my motorcycle.
Thanks to Mike Palmieri, this bit of history (below) has been preserved from the 1970's. That is the old 
sugar mill in the background.
Now that I've found the little house, the trailer is next.
I wonder if Struts still lives there?
It was time to check on ol', now getting older fast, UP 7505.
She had picked  up steam and was at a full 30 mph gallop across New Iberia.
Evidently the light thing was fixed.
I didn't have time for a good shot and fired on the run.
I overheard the engineer saying that the crew was OUT OF TIME.
They are limited to a specific number of hours on the "road" and when that's  up, it's up.
They could not make the Lafayette Yard and would  have to stop the train 
at the Evangeline Thruway overpass south of Broussard.
They had to get there quickly.
She and I were on the fly.

L&D RR 1852 had been joined by L&D RR 1200 for a pull into Lafayette after the tracks were cleared of the late train.  A replacement  crew had been ordered to get to Broussard quickly.
I beat her to Airport Rd and took my place in the ditch.
Your OJ was on its way.
They always are right next to the engines so the crew can OJ away, too many rhymes? OK.
And, that was the end of my working day.
I, too, was OUT OF TIME.
