Wearing these again today. May have finally solved the problem of what to call them.

Since no one seems quite certain whether the saddle parts are shark or kudu, and since they only have a number and no name in them, from now on going to call them Secret Agent Man.

"Secret agent man, secret agent man,
They've given you a number and taken away your name."

For fans of "A-E In The Wild" pictures, standing next to a locomotive earlier today at the place I still call Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal.

On the off chance anyone is wondering how long I've worn blue blazers and taken pictures standing next to locomotives at LAUPT, here's a picture taken when Kennedy was President.

Before anyone asks did I just take pictures standing next to locomotives or did I get on the train and go somewhere after taking the pictures, the answer is yes.

Extra Added Attraction: Last year in Arizona I may have discovered the source of shell cordovan safety shoes.

OMG the bow tie/stripe shirt combo is awesome!!!!!!! BTW, I like trains as well, except when it is a very, very long slow moving freight train, and I have to wait at the crossing 1/2 mile from my house, when I need to use the bathroom (getting older does that to one). Otherwise they are really cool.

If you’re a 9.5e in the MacNeil, you can thank me later


Looks like they still have an 11E and 11 3E for under $335. Which is a great price.

Not sure if this is some kind of glitch, but just checked amazon for other shell cordovan and found myself a Randolph Burgandy in 13E for less than $240

@Roycru this is not a high quality pic but UP’s No. 4014 did several whistle stops nearby Friday, including Main Street in my town. A 4-8-8-4, it lay dormant in a museum in Pomona for half a century before UP bought it back six years ago and restored it. It hit the road, et, tracks this year. It is the only one of the 25 “Big Boys” built in WWII still in operation. It is the biggest and most powerful steam locomotive still operating. UP sends it on PR tours. Currently celebrating the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad.

Shoe link: I was wearing burg shell Bradley’s.

@Roycru. This should all be in a book by now. Or two.
