This familiar subject is a welcome reminder that I am not alone is this world.  Somedays I feel like I spend most of my time searching for something I had just the day before. I love the subtly obvious & humorous  "Everything will always be found at the last place you look". On a related subject, I have heard it suggested that this "hobby" should be described as "parts collecting" &/or "to do list" making. Gary Hodson

Everything will always be found at the last place you look.  I recently spent ten days searching for a lost wallet.  I found it--where else--in the shoes I was wearing the day it went missing.

  Yes they do Rick.  Keys are mainly for switch locks.  There is a key for the back door of the cab.  You close and lock the front door from the inside and leave by the back door.  The caboose has door keys.  Even though the major railroads are not maintaining the caboose that are left, they use them for a shoving platform for a crew member to stand on and report to the engineer that is backing up a train when to stop or how fast to go.  I also have switch keys for Amtrak locks, UP locks and keys from the San Diego sub.  As a railroaded you have all kinds of keys.Mike M (former switchman, conductor and engineer on BNSF Railway)
