Just hold on to it for another 4 years, and they can re-use it. 2017 has the same days.

FTA- "Times-Tribune publisher Bobby Lynett says he'll see if the Steamtown National Historic Site railroad museum is interested in the calendar. If not, he'll display it in the newspaper's offices"

He's kidding, right? If they don't want it, I know about a hundred model railroaders/ railfans who would love to take it off his hands.

Including me. Even if I am a hardcore UP guy, I have a soft spot in my head heart for the pennsy.

Gyrfalcon: That's kind of cool. Wonder where it's been all this time?


I have a theory that the act of delivering mail opens a hole in the space-time continuum and occasionally sucks pieces of mail forward in time. Same thing happens with socks in the laundry. That's why you occasionally see one sock on the side of the road.
