Maybe that's it.  I'd like to have a car with the reporting marks.   Cheesy

Here is a list of acronyms, try pronouncing the first one.

Check out the last two on the list.  Cheesy

We often have "Kahlua, Grand Marnier, Bailey's Irish Cream", except out here it's called "Smythe & Kearns".  Cool

And the winner (I think) is...(tada)..railroads suffixed "Eastern".

Expecting a short list, I did a search with the keywords "Eastern Railroads". I found (groan) over 50.  I can't handle that much typing, though I did scribble the list on a notepad.  Someone else can have a go at it.  Cool

Are we having fun yet?
