Yup, the El is not a bad way to travel. It really moves when the stops aren't too close together. I was surprised how quickly the trees were flashing by during a couple stretches. If there weren't a dozen stops between South Bend and Chicago, it would be a very quick trip.

Glad you like the ghetto coat hanger, Daox. I had bought a chunk of sheet steel that I was gonna hack up to fit in there, but thought I'd wait a couple days to see if inspiration struck.
It did.
Duh, use a coat hanger, Einstein. Some days it takes me awhile. I often find it difficult to remember the KISS principle in my designs.

FS, sorry no teeth. Olivia's a lover, not a fighter.
