Okay. Boyd's Crater Road. A CSX autorack comes through

 The story behind the crater( and the bridge!) First of all, yes, the bridge is a mile long. The crater was formed about a year ago. A massive lightning storm came through and formed the crater. A mile-long gap in the tracks was born. This busy track was closed for about 3 months(really, I had not thought about the bridge until after three months!) Then I built the bridge, and everything is now good. Before the storn wiped out most of the forest, this road was Boyd's Forest Road.

pageview boost

After a while of this blog being on ( Monday is this blog's two month anniversary), I must say that I am very dissapointed at the number of views. So I added the pageviews gadget. As I can see, this blog has almost reached 1,000 pageviews. In mid-september, the blog reached 800 pageviews. Where have my viewers gone? I can see that I only have three followers. Why? I know that only people with Google accounts can follow, but come on! I know that school is in session, but come on! So what if I only post during the weekends? Now on to the cheerier stuff. To boost publicity, I will have a big 1,000th pageview celebration the weekend of the 1000th post! I even put in new polls every two weeks! I am sure that there are more than four(including me) Google accounts out there in the world! So if you have friends on your Email account that have Google accounts, then send them a referral. If you have your own blog, then tell your fellow people about this blog. Trust me, I have made people railfans, if not crossing fans, in a week. If you have any more publicity ideas, then please leave a comment for this post giving me an idea. On a different topic, a blog quiz poll has been added. I will now end because I have spent an hour writing this post.
