2-2-2T Loco "Wanded & Sampled", Startling Discovery Made Inside Its Firebox
« Reply #25 on: December 04, 2022, 04:55:02 AM »
Horizon sunset February 8, 2022 in South Dakota was 6:00 p.m., more than enough time it was thought by HARVEY Commander Major June Morant to fly out the 2-2-2T locomotive from the Meeson farms to Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A given there was a 80 minute window of clearing skies towards the west according to an Air Force meteorologist watching Doppler Radar computer monitors inside the POSOC C-130J north of the locomotive on Landing Zone 3. At 3:47 p.m. Central Time Air Force Major Doctor Edward Sung Kim in charge of 14 radtechs & biotechs (radiological & biological warfare medical specialists) assigned half of them to examine & gather physical samples for testing in Tents F-2 & F-4 respectively, before they could he’d ordered Air Police Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica’s four AP detail to move from guarding the “China Tent” to “planting” them around the PORBOF tent’s perimeter well as the “China Tent’s” watching for UAVs & manned aircraft, vehicles traversing 355th Avenue adjacent to the railroad spur (none that day so far) Doctor Kim then ordering Army & Air Force engineers to remove the “China Tent’s” north & south fabric covers doors.

Up on ladders the engineers swiftly removed & folded them up revealing the locomotive to all who could see it from either ends. Near everyone present knew what it was but none expected to be so small in size & cute looking as well;

“Looks like a ‘Disneyland’ choo choo!”

quipped an Army engineer;

"Wow! It’s perfect for my hometown’s playland!”

quipped an Air Force one, remembering it’s a “National Security Threat” they & others present acted accordantly keeping their distances from it

Entering the “China Tent” from both ends three radtechs with Geiger counters commenced systematically wanding it from the rails up to the boiler, engine cab & tinder box sides, no unusual radiation detected they’d signaled the engineers to bring in ladders of differing sizes to stand on whilst wanding the rest of the locomotive except for cab & tinder box interiors, not detecting anymore they’d hand signaled “CLEAR” to Doctor Kim standing next to the locomotive’s cowcatcher he then hand signaling four biotechs to enter the tent. Up till now no one had physically touched the locomotive, at this point four biotechs with specimen-collecting tools commenced randomly sampling parts of it they with radtechs afterwards returning to Tents F-2 & F-4 for evaluating them.

Within these tents were state-of-art technology portable analysis equipment electronically interlinked with POSOC Captain Maxwell’s C-130J on Landing Zone 3 signals operators aboard coordinating secured channel communications between it, Site 29-A & The Pentagon manned by Doctor Kim’s seven other radtechs & biotechs nicknamed “The Bug Hunters”,  very soon it was determined “half” the locomotive posed no radiological or biological danger. Returning to the locomotive they’d wanded & bio-sampled the other half upwards to top of the spark arresting chimney funnel except for the engine cab & tinder box, back in the tents Doctor Kim’s Bug Hunters again found no radiological or biological dangers.

Returning to the locomotive for wanding & sampling the engine cab & tinder box, climbing on board the former from both sides two radtechs systematically wanded it & tinderbox followed by the biotechs taking random samples, about to sample around the firebox door biotech Sergeant Jodie Mitchell felt heat coming from it, startled she’d asked her partner Sergeant Chaquille Brown to open it, slowly doing so a faint dull purple light emitted from within, forthwith radioing the alarming discovery to the Tent F-2 & F-4 Bug Hunters Doctor Kim overheard it he abruptly cut in;

“We’re dealing with ‘an unknown’ here Sergeants; are the radtechs still there (next to the locomotive)?”

Mitchel replying radtech Sergeant Jackson Martin had just finished wanding the tinderbox floor, thinking fast Doctor Kim weighed risks of gathering invaluable intelligence information for Major Morant’s Intelligence Officers against Martin’s safety;

“You don’t have to Jack but getting a video recording of it (with his military-issue “secured” smartphone) will help our ‘intelligence people’ carry out the (HARVEY) mission, wand far as you can inside (the firebox) then do the recording.”

Crouching down next Sergeant Mitchell on his right, Sergeant Brown standing right of her holding the firebox door open, Sergeant Martin agreed to his request. Cautiously poking his tubular LED equipped Geiger Counter into it sweeping a 360 circle no radiation was detected, poking farther back he’d swept circular again, no radiation was detected, peering inside towards the perforated steam pipe mounting plates forward of the firebox he got back on his radio set to Doctor Kim;

“Sir! The (locomotive) firebox insides are absolutely clean, I mean ‘factory fresh’ clean just like the rest of the locomotive. I don’t see any light inside what I DO see are purplish crystalline reflections of the LED light…”

As he spoke the reflections faded away to the steel grey of factory-new steam locomotive firebox interiors, noting that Martin got back on the radio to Doctor Kim;

“…Sir! The purple light reflections are ‘evaporating’ in a ‘patterned manner’, am video recording it all now!”

Fifteen seconds into video recording the reflections were near gone, as the last one faded away  a sudden microburst of metallic deep purple-orange light emanated from a left of center vertical steam pipe mounting plate accompanied by electric static noise startling Sergeant Martin, split second later it was gone, halting video recording he got back on with Doctor Kim;

“Sir! The ‘reflections’ are gone but I’d just recorded a paranormal anomaly in the firebox! You & Major Morant need to see it before we (radtechs & biotechs) do anything more here.”

Thinking fast Doctor Kim asked Martin if anything else ‘strange’ was going on around the locomotive, forthwith quizzing his “tech” colleges who’d meantime had gathered next to the engine cab on either side they’d replied “nyet” Doctor Kim then asking the assembled via Martin whether they’d finished their radiological scans & bio-sampling work, all replying yes he’d ordered everyone out of the “China Tent” back to the “tent farm”, Air Police Master Sergeant LaMonica to place APs either end of it – for now.

Acheampong Et. Al. Sets Up Shop In Jay's Study, Marv Hands Androids Over To Her
« Reply #26 on: December 05, 2022, 09:52:27 AM »
Samsung Android Galaxy S22 Ultra Smartphone Of The Kind Used By Jay, Millie & Marvin Meeson To Video Record The 2-2-2T Locomotive February 8, 2022

LG 34UM88C-P.Ultrawide 34-Inch Computer Monitor Approximating American Made Ultra-High Resolution Ones (40% Smaller Pixel Size) For LUCERNE & WARREN

International Orange-Painted Russian Aircraft Flight Recorder 75% Size & Dimensions Of LUCERNE & WARREN Computers, REXALL Near Same Size

Portable US Military Satellite Antenna Similar To Those Outdoors East Of Jay Meeson's Study

As mentioned earlier, following HARVEY Air Force Commander Major June Morant’s meeting with ENDER detail Army Corps Of Engineers Commander Major Kevin McCarthy & his Army engineers requesting their help assisting Morant’s Air Force engineer counterparts getting the 2-2-2T locomotive aboard her C-130J Command Ship & flying it out to Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A before sundown February 8, 2022, her superior OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong asked if she could drive one of the Meeson’s F-250s with Morant’s Intelligence Officers to Jay & Millie’s house to commence the intelligence gathering work with Meeson family members. Replying one was next to her Command Ship Morant said their gear was aboard & ready for taking Acheampong & Intelligence Officers to the Meeson’s house, appreciative Acheampong said thanks back hand signaling the officers to follow her over to it & get in as passengers as she’d do the driving Morant meantime “hoofing next door” to the C-130J on Landing Zone 2 to supervise unloading of the 20-ton Rough Terrain Container Crane (RTCC).

Standing yards right of the opened Cargo Ramp Door she’d watched it slowly motor out from the aircraft’s Cargo Floor towards bottom of the Carbo Ramp Door there waiting a half-minute for Air Force Major Doctor Edward Sung Kim’s train of Meeson’s John Deere tractor-trailers loaded with medical personal, Air Force engineers, materials, tools & equipment snake by over the slushy snow covered asphalt service road paralleling east side of the railroad spur towards the “China Tent”. Driving south over it meantime in an F-250 Acheampong expertly dodged Air Force personnel driving other vehicles & on foot toting materials, tools & equipment, hopping right then left around them onto snow covered muddy earth Acheampong’s aggressive driving prowness startled the officers well as personnel on the roadway she’d passed, arriving at the Meeson’s house half minute ahead of them all she & the Intelligence Officers bolted out, latter unloading their gear whilst she’d beelined it to Jay & Millie’s Reception Room front door.

Ringing the doorbell she’d peered into the Reception Room’s left side of door widow to see Marv Meeson approaching the left double door (i.e. his right), opening it again with Army courtesy for the benefit of Air Police & Army radtechs inside, latter’s Geiger counter wanding two Meeson family members, Marv stood at attention in front Acheampong;

“Glad you’re back Ma’am! Evans passed your message to Dad about using his study for holding intelligence briefings of my family (members), he’d said OK; hasn’t changed that much since you were last in it (decades ago) so go right in with your (intelligence) officers & set things up!”

Forthwith thanking Marv & ordering the APs & radtechs behind him to “Carry On” Acheampong went back outside to help Morant’s Intelligence Officers lug gear into Jay’s study adjacent to his & Millie’s bedroom south end of the house. Spiriting left in front of Marv, two family members & radtechs standing at the radiation inspection station third of way into the Reception Room, she & the Intelligence Officers carted & carried equipment in briefcases, bags & hard plastic containers of various shapes & sizes down the house’s southside hallway into Jay & Millie’s spacious bedroom at the end then into Jay’s study south adjacent to it. Large enough to accommodate six people sitting & six standing a 3x6-foot caster-wheeled rectangular table was in the middle; admiring Jay’s firearms collection in cabinets lining the north wall included antique Soviet & Communist Chinese submachine guns Space Force Intelligence Captain Marcy Dougan quizzingly asked Acheampong how he’d got them;

“Don’t ask Captain, that’s ‘more secret’ than ‘those whatever’s’ been dropping ‘Objects’ on us since last November! Only thing can say is the PPD (Pistolet-Pulemyot Degtyaryova sub machine guns) are extremely rare first-production 1934 & ‘35 models that somehow made their way to South Korea. They’re functional but Jay’s not taken out of the cabinets since 1967 when this house was built, told me that decade later where am standing now, said he’d never would while HE was alive!”

Jay’s study now a Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) hosting highly classified intelligence gathering & communications equipment for evaluating & uploading video recordings from his, Millie’s & Marv’s Samsung Android Galaxy S22 Ultra et.al. Meeson family member’s smartphones to OPOM Pentagon & Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A Major June Morant’s Pentagon Intelligence Officers first had to forensically examine them for compromised hardware & software by a plethora of “unfriendly” domestic & international public & private entities (mostly governments China & Russia in particular) eager to steal US national secrets with highly sophisticated computer hardware & software. To accomplish this laid out on the 3x6 table were the “crown jewels” of US military electronic intelligence hardware & software forensics technology: three heavily electromagnetically shielded cased USA designed & built desktop computers with USA fabricated components hosting USA written software so new & secret just 35 persons in the entire US military, including Morant’s four Pentagon Intelligence Officers, knew how to operate them, resembling International Orange-painted aircraft flight recorders each computer system performed specific compartmentalized “electronics management” functions:

• External Telecommunications code named REXALL
• External Hardware Forensics code named LUCERNE
• Data Forensics & Analysis code named WARREN

REXALL managed digital communications between LUCERN, WARREN, Pentagon computers hosting remote software programs & data storage “tanks”, OPOM Pentagon & Site 29-A via highly encrypted secured channel satellite communications from two portable military telecommunications satellite antennas set up outdoors east of Jay’s study “cabled-in” from an adjoining bathroom window. Acting as digital communications “traffic cop” operating REXALL was Space Force Satellite Communications Specialist Captain LaVern de la Torre PhD Psychology University Of Michigan Ann Arbor with honors who’s MOS’ included Computer Communications & Human Intelligence Gathering & Analysis.

LUCERNE forensically examined electronic hardware (i.e. the Meeson’s Android smartphones) with highly sophisticated scanning programs capable of identifying individual electronic components at the P-N Junction Cluster level against databases of “genuine” ones in real time. For LUCERNE to deliver “clean” extracted data (i.e. video files of the locomotive) to WARREN all compromised hardware components (i.e. Android’s microchips et.al.) had to be forensically examined on assumption they’d been manufactured with imbedded digital data surveillance capabilities any found bypassed with software emulation. Before the data itself stored in mass storage microchips could be “extracted” they too had to be examined compromised P-N Junction Clusters bypassed with software emulation as well, were too many the “clean” extracted data (i.e. video files of the locomotive) was reconstructed as best possible. Operating LUCERNE was Air Force Electronic Intelligence Interpretation Specialist Captain Joseph Langley Sr. PhD Computational Science & Engineering with honors from the Massachusetts Institute Of Technology, at age 54 he the oldest member of the HARVEY mission on his last field assignment before retiring also was one of the REXALL, LUCERNE & WARREN computer systems designers.

WARREN is where “clean” extracted data (i.e. video files of the locomotive) “batoned” from LUCERNE was interpreted, prior to doing so however a very large number of remote software scanning programs hosted on Pentagon computers looking for digitally imbedded spyware (i.e. surveillance programs) malware, adware etc. had to be downloaded & run in isolation to “mask over” or remove or them outright via number of classified methods. Remotely accessing via satellite the US Military’s most highly classified digital intelligence files & databases for conducting the interpretations only the WARREN operators - 11 of them - held Special Access Required (SAR a.k.a. Special Access Programs security protocols) clearances for doing so amongst them 41 year old Air Force Signals Intelligence Captain Norman Joseph Maynard Jr. PhDs Computing Sciences & Mathematics California Institute Of Technology.

Overseeing them all was Space Force Intelligence Captain Marcy Dougan PhDs Psychology Yale University with honors, Computer Science Artificial Intelligence University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign who’s MOS’ included conducting human intelligence gathering & analysis at age 53 the second oldest member of the HARVEY mission also on her last field assignment before retiring. Reporting to HARVEY Commander Major June Morant but for 2-2-2T locomotive video file forensic evaluations to OPOM Pentagon Commander Acheampong she, Morant & Acheampong all holding SAR clearances.

Arranged on the 3x6-foot table either side facing north & south sat two state of the art ultra-high resolution (40% smaller pixel size) custom American made 34-inch computer monitors in front of each QUERTY keyboards & mouse touchpads supplemented by special keyboards connected to northside LUCERNE & southside WARREN computers laying next to them. On the east end sat a 30-inch monitor for the REXALL computer laying next to it also with QUERTY keyboards & mouse touchpads supplemented by a special keyboard for operating it at the west end a 30-inch monitor with QUERTY keyboards & mouse touchpads for Captain Dougan overseeing the REXALL, LUCERNE, WARREN operators she selectively “pulling-up” whatever each had up on their monitors well as programs running on them. All electronic equipment, satellite antennas included, were Interconnected by heavily shielded electric cables & powered by portable direct current batteries of several kinds & voltages, rated for 5 hours continuous use batteries were not externally recharged during mission operations out of concerns of current surge damage, two spare battery banks brought along for the HARVEY mission as backups.

By 4:20 p.m. Central Time February 8, 2022 Colonel Acheampong & her Intelligence Officer Captains had “set up shop” inside Jay’s study, secured channel satellite communications established with OPOM Pentagon & Site 29-A a lengthy series of arcane & complex security protocols for establishing direct though highly encrypted digital communications contacts with their Top Secret computers had to be followed before commencing with the pressing business at hand: uploading the video recordings of the 2-2-2T locomotive off of Jay’s, Millie’s, Marv’s et.al. Meeson family member’s smartphones. Whilst her Captains tediously labored over establishing them Acheampong departed & walked to the north end of the house where the Meesons currently were being psychologically evaluated by Air Force Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan & Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard in the game room & den to collect them.

Passing the now vacant Reception Room, Army Medical Corpsman First Lieutenant Doctor Marjorie Whitman’s radtechs since having moved to Room 9 (for radtechs, 10 for biotecs) of the east-facing Dormitory for seasonal farm labor adjacent to Jay & Millie’s house, she & her “techs” feverishly electronically uploading though secured channel communication links their radiological & biological examination & testing reports & data of Meeson family members to computers aboard HARVEY POSOC Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell’s C-130J up north on Landing Zone 3 Acheampong walked unannounced into the game room. An attractive, well-muscled petite woman looking half her 50 years, Acheampong immediately got everybody’s attention all there standing up both in respect of her military rank & joy for seeing an old family friend again. At back of the room Doctor Ranganathan & Captain Bullard forthwith saluted her, reciprocating she’d addressed those present:

“I don’t have much time but I want to say thank you all (i.e. the Meesons) for ‘hosting’ military operations here. What you’d been though today is beyond extraordinary, nobody, no family for that matter, ever should have to put up with such an indignity from whomever, whatever had ‘landed’ the locomotive on the (railroad) spur this morning. We don’t know how it got here but we do know it has to be flown out by sundown before the next blizzard rolls in tonight. The last weather report I’d read is that we’ve got up to 80 minutes of ‘clear’ skies so hopefully we’ll have the loco loaded on Major Morant’s Super Hercules transport & flown out within this time.”

“I now must to ask all of you (Meesons) to hand over your smartphones or other video recording equipment & media to me. I can assure you all that the only (computer digital) data files we want to ‘extract’ from them are of the locomotive, the (computer forensics) technology we have can do that without having to ‘snoop around’ in any others. After the files are extracted they will be returned before I and my Intelligence Officers leave here.”

“Meantime, my Officers will be conducting interviews of you all regarding the locomotive, they are not legal depositions, they’re vital to their intelligence mission however, they’re highly trained in their intelligence fields and absolutely will show all of you the upmost respect in carrying them out, that I can personally assure you of!”

Walking from back of the room towards her left side Marv Meeson holding three Android smartphones: his, Jay’s & Millie’s, in his right hand spoke first;

Laying them onto her right hand palm with military courtesy & respect Acheampong smiled back at him & the Meeson clan;

“Thank you Major. Before I go back (to Jay’s study) could you, Jay & Millie ‘be available’ in case ‘my Captains’ and I need you (for commentary on the video recordings)?”

Replying ‘of course’ to her Marv then saluted her, looking at Major Doctor Ranganathan & Captain Bullard she ordered them to “Carry On” with their psychiatric evaluations of the Meesons she forthwith circling around & retreating back into Jay’s study to upload "the locomotive videos" onto OPOM Pentagon & Site 29-A's Top Secret computers.

US Military Smartphone Sans Video Camera Similar To That Used By Air Force "Radtech" Sergeant Jackson Martin To Video Record Anomaly
Inside The 2-2-2T Locomotive Firebox His Having A Video Camera & Sound Recording Capability

Meantime to Colonel Acheampong & Major Morant’s Intelligence Officers “setting up shop” in Jay Meeson’s study, several yards away outside on Jay & Millie Meeson’s house parking lot in the Tent F-1 Radiological & Biological Medical Operations Command Center, Air Force Major Doctor Kim commanding radtechs & biotechs analyzing Geiger counter scans & bio-samples obtained from their teem peers off the 2-2-2T locomotive suddenly got word from three of them via radio communications of paranormal activity occurring within its firebox. Forthwith ordering all “his” personnel away from it per protocol they’d beelined it respectively to Tent F-3 (Radiological Contamination Hazmat Garments & Materials Disposal, Radtech Medical First Aid) & F-5 (Biological Contamination Hazmat Garments & Materials Disposal, Biotech Medical First Aid) for emergency decontamination.

Forthwith signaling the startling news to HARVEY Commander Major June Morant then supervising positioning of the 20-ton RTCC adjacent to the railroad spur several hundreds of feet north of the “China Tent” for moving it to her C-130J Command Ship over Landing Zone 1 she’d “grabbed” one of the Meeson’s Ford F-250 pickups motoring up road to POSOC Force Captain Maxwell’s C-130J on Landing Zone 3, got in, ordered the Air Force engineer driving it to u-turn & hustle back to the “tent farm” on the Meeson house parking lot. Rushing into Tent F-1 she immediately conferred with Doctor Kim regarding the paranormal activity;

“DID it appear to be ‘active’ meaning was there actual physical movement of anything inside the firebox? This IS important Doctor!”

Forthwith radio signaling radtech Sergeant Jackson Martin who’d actually witnessed it then undergoing radiation decontamination examinations in Tent F-3 Doctor Kim put him “on the line” with Major Morant;

“Sergeant! This IS important! Did you see ANY physical movement of anything inside the firebox?”

Replying that all he saw were light reflections then a sudden microburst of metallic deep purple-orange light emanated from a left of center vertical steam pipe mounting plate accompanied by electric static noise Morant then asked Martin whether the light “moved around” in any way;

“Ma’am, no movement at all, just the microburst & static sound, its all on the (military smartphone) video recording I’d made of it.”

Thinking hard on what orders to give, Morant knew from November 13, 2022 California Highway Patrol witness reports from two Pakistani & Ecuadorian big rig truckers seeing bright blue & violet glowing lights emanating from The Mefford Twins: Boeing B-17G Preston’s Pride & F-4C Phantom II, faint light presumably blue-violet surrounding the Deutsches Luftwaffe Heinkel 177 A-5, latter claiming something ‘heavenly’ AND ‘scary’ was there, i.e. presumably ‘moving within’ the Twins his descriptions approximating those of Jay & Millie’s Android video recordings of the 2-2-2T locomotive’s materialization out of thin air as described in detail earlier above, surmising what Sergeant Martin likely had witnessed was “completion” of the locomotive’s paranormal materialization albeit many hours late relative to The Mefford Anachronisms theirs likely just in minutes. Mentally formulating her orders she’d got in radio contact with Colonel Acheampong then in Jay’s study;

“Ma’am, did ‘our’ Intelligence Officers receive & look at Sergeant Martin’s military smartphone video recording of the locomotive firebox anomaly sent over (via secured communications link) minute or two ago by Doctor Kim?”

Forthwith replying that she & they had and in HER judgement it was OK to resume radiological & biological examinations & tests on the locomotive she’d added this;

“Martin’s video is congruent with witness accounts of the Objects 1, 2 & 3’ (OPOM’s official designations of Preston’s Pride, Phantion II, Heinkel 177) materializations well as Jay & Millie Meeson’s, if ‘the whatever’s’ conducting them wanted to they easily could make life miserable for all of us but don’t think that’s the case with the loco. I want Martin’s phone for LUCERNE & WARREN pass-throughs (i.e. hardware & resident video file forensic examinations), am coming outside to get it now, have it ready for me!”

Hustling out of the SCIF (i.e. Jay Meeson’s house study) & ‘diving’ into Tent F-3 Acheampong standing in front of Morant, Doctor Kim & Martin lined up in that order retrieved the smartphone from the latter;

“We need to ‘keep it for a while’ Martin, thank you for taking the video.”

Looking sternly at Kim & Morant she’d ordered the latter to have Major Doctor Ranganathan, & Captain Norma Bullard psychologically evaluate him;

“We need ‘human intel’ (intelligence) on the anomaly, I want everyone with Martin at the time evaluated also. Confine them to Tent F-7 (General Medical First Aid Station, Latrine, Sanitation & Rest Area) after their assigned tasks are completed, Captains de la Torre & Dougan will interview them there. Proceed with the mission as planned Major!”

Abruptly turning around & departing the tent Acheampong stormed back into Jay & Millie’s house & the SCIF, handing it to LUCERNE operator Captain Joseph Langley Sr. she said this;

“Here’s another smartphone to “bug hunt” (forensically examine) Joe, really don’t think its compromised but can’t take chances ‘whomevers’ or ‘whatevers’ brought the loco here aren’t ‘playing games’ with us!”

Dr. Yee's Techs Done With Loco Dr. Whitman Done With Meesons, Loco "Certified"
« Reply #28 on: December 06, 2022, 12:43:11 AM »
Immediately after receiving Colonel Acheampong’s order to proceed with the HARVEY mission as planned (i.e. sequence of steps involved) in flying out the 2-2-2T locomotive to Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A as planned Major Morant ordered Doctor Kim to send his radtechs & biotechs back to it, finish remaining radiological & biological examinations & tests. Doing so but with trepidation how’d they react to such an order he immediately quizzed all those who’d “worked” on the loco, still rattled over what he’d seen & heard in the firebox Sergeant Martin was hesitant to do so again but nonetheless obeying the order saying to Doctor Kim he’d (Geiger counter) “wand” the firebox again just to overcome fear of what he’d seen & heard in it earlier. Leading the group of seven “techs” back to the locomotive himself Doctor Kim supervised them whilst completing their work, all complete by 4:35 p.m. Central Time February 8, 2022 they’d returned to their respective “F-Tents” for decontamination examinations afterwards examined for both radiological & biological contamination he’d returned to the Tent F-1 Radiological & Biological Medical Operations Command Center to meet jointly with HARVEY Commander Major June Morant, ENDER detail Commander Army Corps Of Engineers Major Kevin McCarthy, Army Medical Corps First Lieutenant Doctor Marjorie (“Mae”) Whitman on certifying the locomotive “safe for handling” by Air Force & Army engineers.

Speaking first Lieutenant Whitman said all the Meesons had passed all examinations & tests for radiological & biological contamination, all results of them passed on to Doctor Kim he forthwith concurring with their findings;

“Mae’s team (of radtecs & biotecs) did explementary thorough work under less than ideal clinical conditions worthy of (rank) promotions for all Major McCarthy. I’d LOVE to have her work for me, DO hope you’ll pass on the promotions recommendation to her (Army) Medical Corps superiors, I’ll pass them on in writing (to them) by weeks end!”

Heartedly agreeing Major McCarthy said he’d also forward written recommendations for their promotions by weeks end as well, glancing at Doctor Whitman he’d added;

“Good job Lieutenant! You & ‘the team’ are dismissed, pack up & go home (to Camp Grafton)! Captain Carpenter’s (pilot of McCarthy’s CH-47F Chinook on helicopter Landing Zone 1) been ‘shivering’ in it for hours ready to fly (helicopter) y’all out, I’ll be flying back in (Army Lieutenant Guy) Brooks’ chopper later.”

Dismissed from duty at 4:51 p.m. Lieutenant Whitman group-saluted her superiors, forthwith replying “Thank You Sir” to McCarthy she’d returned to Dormitory Rooms 9 & 10 east side of & adjacent to Jay & Millie Meeson’s house for seasonal farm labor where medical examinations of Meeson family members were conducted, resumed helping her radtech & biotech Sergeant colleagues pack up their materials, equipment & tools for transport to Captain’s Brook’s Chinook. Immediately afterwards jointly conferring with Morant & McCarthy on protocols to be followed for electronically approving his certification of the locomotive being “safe for handling” at 4:53 p.m. Doctor Kim “signed” it first followed by Morant & McCarthy. With its signing Morant’s Air Force & McCarthy’s Army engineers could now move the locomotive out the ”China Tent” to the 20-ton RTCC hundreds of feet north & adjacent to the railroad spur, weather permitting it could be loaded aboard Morant’ C-130J Command Ship on Landing Zone 1 & flown out by sundown provided no unexpected new “snags” ala Sergeant Jackson Martin’s “spooky lights” discovery in the locomotive’s firebox earlier within the hour.

Ultra Instrument Incorporated RS-20 Integrated Rail State Inspection Vehicle Concept Approximating The Open Top Air Force Gas-Powered Railbed Inspection Car With Reversable Seats, Front-Mounted 15-Ton Winch & Magnetic Brakes

Up north some 1,100 feet from the “China Tent” watching Doppler Radar computer monitors inside the POSOC’s C-130J, Mountain Home AFB Air Force Meteorologist Lieutenant Hunter Jeramiah Lamont assigned to the HARVEY mission also was reading the latest North-Central USA weather forecasts. Noting that a deep trough of rapidly moving frigid “Canadian Air” pushing south over eastern Montana & Wyoming, the Dakotas down to northern Nebraska & straight-line back into Canada dumping up to 8-inches of snow over central South Dakota (Meeson Farms only got 4) had moved east opening up a 200 mile-wide x 400 mile vertical gap of clear skies lasting two hours past sundown, at 4:53 p.m. February 8, 2022 he’d secured channel radio signaled “the good news” to HARVEY Commander Major June Morant & ENDER detail Major Kevin McCarthy seconds after they’d electronically signed Air Force Doctor Kim’s “safe for handling” the 2-2-2T locomotive certifications well as OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong she forthwith signaling Morant cancelling plans to fly with her flotilla of C-130Js to Mountain Home AFB but instead helicoptering to Ellsworth jetting overnight back to Joint Base Andrews Maryland & The Pentagon.

Wanting to take advantage of the good weather McCarthy signaled Morant that his engineers would collect all the C-130J airfield materials, equipment & tools on the Meeson farms as originally planned, signaling back that her Air Force engineers “wanted” to help his out they’d compromised on jointly collecting them. Abruptly horning in on the conversation POSOC Captain Maxwell said he’d already polled all the “Super Herc” flight crews on whether they’d needed airfield markers for taking off;

“They’d told me field conditions here (on the Meeson farms) weren’t problematic even for nighttime takeoffs so long as their wasn’t strong crosswinds, no winds are forecasted for next couple of hours.”

Appreciating Maxwell’s initiative Morant & McCarthy agreed to jointly commence collecting them for Landing Zones 2 to 4 but not Zone 1 for her Command Ship;

“I don’t want to chance an ‘airfield accident’ because there weren’t airfield markers for it! God knows what would happen if that damn loco ‘broke loose’ (in it), thing’s friggin unpredictable! The collecting work may proceed whenever your engineers are not assigned immediate tasks, getting the loco into ‘my’ Command Ship is Absolute A-1 Top Priority!”

“Onto other subjects while I’ve got you both ‘on the air’; Major McCarthy, I’ll ask Marvin Meeson if he want us (i.e. Air Force and/or Army engineers) to take down the (“China”) tent over the loco after its pulled out well as gather-up the landing zone markers his family set up for your helos after you depart. Captain Maxwell, I’ll ask him if he wants ‘our’ engineers to ‘clean-up’ the John Deere’s (tractor-trailers) & park them back in the storage sheds (i.e. the “crib sheds” containing farm operations & maintenance materials, tools & equipment next to the grain silos) well as the F-250s, Meesons am told need them soon for farm work; let’s not forget we’re their guests here fellas!”

Forthwith signing off from the conversation Morant hurried out of the Tent F-1 Radiological & Biological Medical Operations Command Center over to the “China Tent” where materials, equipment & tools for towing it over rails adjacent to the 20-ton RTCC 70 feet due west of C-130J Landing Zone 3. Near half-hour earlier several Air Force & Army engineers laboriously retrieved from inside the C-130J that transported the RTCC it all the parts for assembling a four-wheel gas-powered open top reversable seating Railroad Inspection Car fitted with an electric 15-ton capacity winch for pull-towing the locomotive. Assisted by the C-130J aircrews the engineers carted & hand carried them across 80 feet of slippery cold slushy snow up to the railbed laying them down either side over rock-hard snow, under joint direction of Air Force Engineering Technical Sergeant Jose Márquez-Benito who’s MOS (Military Occupational Specialties) included Railway Maintenance Of Way technology & operations, including that for Inspection Cars, Army Corps Of Engineers Sergeant First Class Moses “Moshi” Levin (Moshi Levin hereon) who’s MOS included skillfully operating powered winches under difficult conditions, several of them (i.e. engineers) assembled it within 20 minutes.

Some ten minutes later south at the “China Tent”, HARVEY Commander Major Morant was supervising Air Force engineers “loop-hooking” (i.e. looping around & clip-locking) onto the locomotive’s front bogie wheelset crossbar two 12-foot, half-inch flexible braded steel towing cables. Fished behind the bogies either side of the cowcatcher & clip-locked around the crossbar the free cable ends then were clip-locked onto loop ends of a metal “towing triangle” the apex loop awaiting to be “clipped” by the Inspection Car’s winch cable’s clip hook. Assembling the rigging Air Force Engineering Corporals Jody Hartman & Edgar Yee out on their very first field assignments “stress tested” the hook connections by hand pulling the towing triangle hard as they could from the locomotive whilst watching for slippages, satisfied all was secure both then lowered the triangle forthwith scrambling to the left side of the rail bed facing west standing next to a 5-gallon open tub of biodegradable grease & brooms awaiting orders to “dress” the railheads for “sliding” the locomotive over its rails in event any of its wheels were locked-up.

Meantime up the railway spur, Sergeants Márquez-Benito & Levin had climbed on the Inspection Car, “gassed-up” & ready to roll, they’d powered it on. Testing the operating systems, including the electric winch & all-important magnetic railhead brakes (“magbrakes”) afterwards they’d signaled two three-man teams armed with brooms either side of the railbed to commence sweeping the railheads 100 feet south.  Proceeding at 5 mph Márquez-Benito “dropped” the magbrakes bringing the car to a sudden stop 75 feet out, most important considering they’d also be used for keeping the car stationary whilst winching the locomotive out of the “China Tent”, satisfied they’re sufficiently strong he’d hand signaled the engineers standing over the railbed 25 feet ahead to resume brooming the railheads at a quickened pace.

Feverishly brooming the engineers cleared off another 300 feet, Márquez-Benito yards behind motoring onwards at their brooming pace halting 40 feet from the “China Tent”. As Majors McCarty & Morant et. al. looked on Márquez-Benito hand signaled Corporals Hartman & Yee to come over & hand-tow the winch cable to the towing triangle, releasing the winch cable reel lock they’d pulled it to up the triangle Yee then hooking it on the apex loop, backing away from it Márquez-Benito then dropped the magbrakes automatically cutting power to the electric traction motor. Hand signaling Hartman & Yee Moshi Levin sitting right of Márquez-Benito commenced reeling in the cable, Márquez-Benito getting off the car checking the magbrakes for railhead slippage. Powering-up the gas engine for more electricity Levin reengaged the winch reel lock, setting the reel rotation control for cable retraction he'd slowly throttled-up the winch motor.

Lifting the cables & towing triangle off the railbed Levin carefully watch for uneven cable alignments & tension, hand signaling to Yee & Levin he was about to commence cable retraction for pulling the 2-2-2T locomotive out of the “China Tent”. Standing inside either side of the locomotive six Air Force & Army engineers watched each wheel for signs of locking up, everyone now in position Yee & Levin standing either side of railbed gripping railhead greasing brooms simultaneously hand signaled Moshi Levin to commence reeling. Powering-up yet more Moshi Levin commenced throttling-up the winch in earnest, straining on the towing triangle hooks all the cables went plane-straight taught from winch to the locomotive’s front bogie crossbar tightening up the loop hooks around it, pulling the cables ever tighter the winch reel winding slowed just as all six locomotive wheels inched into a forward turn, all six engineers forthwith shouting “YEA!” in unison it was apparent all could turn but forward momentum of them now had to be established.

Adding more gas engine-generated electric power Moshi Levin throttled up the winch yet more whilst Márquez-Benito checked for magbrake slippages, none seen, he’d hand signaled Moshi Levin to “go for broke” for winching in, throttling up more all wheels began turning in unison, steam pistons within down-angled cylinders below the boiler on either side emitting apparently normal reciprocating movement sounds meantime. Setting the winch reel turn rate to one cable foot per 2 seconds the locomotive & six engineers still intently watching its wheels turn slowly made way to the “China Tent’s” north opening, looking on with amazement mixed with concern Majors McCarthy, Morant, all others in proximity to the locomotive as well, now could see how beautiful the machine truly was;

“It’s a friggin ‘choo choo freaks’ dream OR nightmare Kevin?!”

Morant quipped to McCarthy;

“Jay (Meeson) am told by Naomi (Acheampong) loved these small 19th Century locomotives as a boy. Is this ‘thing’ a “Gift from the Gods of Steam” (railroad locomotives) to him OR his over-active boyhood imagination that ‘brought’ it here today? Whatever, it’s moving AND we’ll fly it outta of here before sundown -  keep the fingers crossed Kevin!”

Marvin Meeson & June Morant Finally Meet, Share War Stories & Friendships
« Reply #30 on: December 07, 2022, 10:59:17 AM »
2015 Shuttlelift CD5520 20-Ton Low Profile Carry Deck Crane Similar To The Rough Terrain Container Crane For Lifting & Transporting The 2-2-2T Locomotive

The 2-2-2T locomotive now “on the move” towards the 20-ton Rough Terrain Container Crane (RTCC) HARVEY Commander Major June Morant albeit briefly now could attend to other matters the first contacting Marv Meeson, ask if he’d wanted Air Force and/or Army engineers to take down the “China Tent”, gather-up landing zone markers his family set up for helicopters, “clean-up” the John Deere tractor-trailers & park them back in the crib sheds containing farm operations & maintenance materials, tools & equipment next to the grain silos well as the family’s Ford F-250s. Hustling from the railbed east to Jay & Millie’s house’s Reception Room front door & ringing the doorbell, inside the game room & den Air Force Medical Corps Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan, Clinical Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard finishing up their psychological interviews of Meeson family members concerning the paranormal appearance of the locomotive Marv asked Jay & Mille to stay put while he’d answer it.

An attractive tall, blonde haired, blue eyed woman of Nordic-French ancestry, 43-year old Mountain View AFB Site 29-A Assistant Commander Major June Harriet Morant like OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong was a no nonsense hard driving Air Force Engineer. An US Air Force Academy honors graduate she’d gained the well-earned reputation as the service’s “Wonder Woman” field engineer, commanding airfield construction & management operations around the world several whilst under fire in 2006 she’d single-handedly set up helicopter landing zones whilst under fire from Taliban insurgents outside of Panjab, Afghanistan for extracting then US Army Infantry Major Marvin Meeson’s special forces earning her the moniker “June Gloom of Kandahar” both for her dour demeanor & engineering team stationed in Kandahar, Afghanistan at the time. Also having worked closely with US Army Corps Of Engineers personnel in Iraq & Afghanistan Major Kevin McCarthy in particular admired Morant’s resourcefulness in “getting the job done” often extending into the questionable when came to “field procurement” (i.e. theft) of material, equipment & tools he too guilty of such transgressions. Marv & Kevin not having seen her in many years they like her & Colonel Acheampong had to wonder whether the 2-2-2T locomotive’s paranormal appearance brought them together by design also possibly explaining as well why weather conditions suddenly improved late afternoon February 8, 2022 for flying it out to Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A.

Walking out of the game room & den via the west hallway door through the window next to the right double door Marv saw Morant standing alone behind it, still mulling over how to greet her & what to say out of respect of her rank in proper military fashion he’d opened it up. Looking each other straight in the eyes “breaking the ice” she spoke first;

“Major Meeson, it's been a long time since Panjab, that was one harry night, glad to know your special ops team got back to Bagram (Air Base Afghanistan) intact! Panjab was my first airfield management operation under fire, couldn’t had done it without the suppressing fire they’d provided my engineers.”

Smiling at her Marv replied with gratitude;

“All these years Major I’d wanted to thank you for all alone marking out the helo landing zones while your engineers helped my wounded comrades aboard the ‘Jolly Green J’s’ (Sikorski MH-53J Pave Low III Special Operations helicopters), will do so now; ‘Thank You Ma’am’ for them AND me!”

Smiling back Morant thanked him for recommending her for the Silver Star her heroism making it possible for the MH-53Js to extract them;

“Panjab was my first ‘under fire’ (airfield management) operation Marv, Lieutenant ‘June Gloom’’ hid how truly scared shitless she was that night, that’s the unvarnished truth! Fortunately I’d not come so close to being killed since, once is plenty enough!  I’ll be retiring soon, Mountain Home’s (AFB) my last posting before doing so, oldest daughter’s getting married next month, wants a mémère for her kids, that’s my new ‘job’ getting the loco out of here is my last one for the military!”

Appreciative of her candor Marv replied he was just as scared;

“Nobody died in ‘my team’ that night but two were badly wounded: (Army) Corporal Johnnie Firth lost an eye, Sergeant James Patterson his left arm. They’d been with me ‘from the beginning’; 2005 Iraq, 2006 Afghanistan, they like me turned down promotions for just doing their jobs. I already was a Major in the Army Reserves before 9/11, turned Lieutenant Colonel down twice last meant stateside to 114th (Infantry) Regiment (headquarters) leaving them, fenagled (i.e. “pulled strings”) getting back to Afghanistan with them for Special Ops.”

“After Panjab I’d just wanted to go home & retire, still keep in contact with them though, both doing OK as civilians again. Army wanted me to say on, didn’t want to be on ORER (Officer Reserve Emergency Roster) either but Pentagon people (i.e. Army Intelligence) said ‘I knew too much’ (about terrorist operations intelligence in Afghanistan) so they’d put me on it along with Top Secret clearances as conditions for retiring never expecting you & Naomi (Acheampong) showing up here! Knowing her she’ll ‘lasso’ me into this ‘locomotive business’ & won’t let go if you follow me, just praying my commission won’t be reactivated, folks (Jay & Millie Meeson) need me now that they’re past 90 (years old).”

Listening sympathetically Morant replied she’d wanted to be with her family also;

“I’d not told anybody else this but Dad escaped capture after ‘punching out’ (ejecting) near Vinh (North Vietnam), his (Air Force F-4C) Phantom (II) was hit by a SAM (Surface To Air Missile) in ’68 (1968) his (crewmate) ‘partner’ didn’t eject, still don’t know where he & the plane crashed. It bothered him rest of his life no end he’d survived and his ‘partner’ didn’t. Dad didn’t want me to enter the (Air Force) Academy but did so anyway, he died before I’d graduated from cancer. Many times Dad told me the only thing that mattered was ‘family’, with my eldest (daughter) getting married next month I now know what he’d meant by that!”

Appreciating her candor Marv said he’d understood, during the Battle of Chosin Reservoir (November-December 1950)  his father Jay, then an Army Sergeant Reservist, saved his commanding officer for being killed in a Chinese Army “human wave” counterattack but his best friend was killed whilst doing so, after that he’d never forgot how important friends & family were;

“Dad didn’t want me to join the ‘regular’ Army but thought being in the reserves would ‘keep me out of harm’s way’ a bit longer, unfortunately didn’t work out that way either in Iraq or Afghanistan!”

Returning to “the business at hand” Morant related what she’d told ENDER detail Commander Major McCarthy & POSOC Captain Maxwell, i.e. asking Marv if he want Air Force and/or Army engineers to take down the “China Tent”, gather-up helicopter landing zone markers his family had set up, ‘clean-up’ the John Deere tractor-trailers, park them back in the “crib sheds” containing farm operations & maintenance materials, tools & equipment next to the grain silo) well as the Ford F-250s, heartedly agreeing Marv added he et.al. would help out cleaning off & parking the tractor-trailers well as the F-250s, happy with the response Morant begged his pardon for departing;

“I’ve got to get back over to the rail spur, by now the locomotive is half-way to the RTCC, the critical work lifting it off the tracks & over to my ‘Super Herc’ will get underway in about 15 minutes, must to supervise it to be sure it comes off OK. Colonel Acheampong wants to see me before ‘I’ fly it to Mountain Home, if she does so in here (Jay & Millie’s house) I’ll be seeing you again!”

Both then standing at attention Marv reminded her that he was her superior during the Panjab special forces extraction operation;

You’re dismissed Major. I wish you well; greetings to your eldest daughter, the Meesons wish all the best for her in marriage.”

Forthwith saluting him Morant replied: “Thank You Sir!”, turning around & walking off Marv closed the door behind her forthwith returning to the game room & den.

Boxes Of Passion Fruit Akin To Those "Eaten By Lights" On Salvadore Lorenzo Maroni’s Santa Paula, California Orchard July 8, 1957

Sitting atop a 2x3-foot military-issue portable field table adjacent to & facing northeast of the 3x6-foot rectangular table in the middle of Jay Meeson’s study cum SCIF between the REXALL & LUCERNE computers was a small & tall International Orange-colored rectangular plastic box for ensconcing Jay’s, Millie’s & Marv’s Samsung Android Galaxy S22 Ultras & Air Force Radtech Sergeant Jackson Martin’s military smartphones. Assigned responsibility for operationally employing it Air Force Electronic Intelligence Interpretation Specialist Captain Langley Sr. plugged USB (i.e. Universal Serial Bus Type-C) wire leads into each without turning them on, stacking them horizontally on four of five shelves electronically shielded from each other, closing & locking the box door behind them, five three-foot long top to bottom numbered shielded wire leads dangling in a straight line down from the door to the study's polished red oak floor. Plugging in Cable No.4 connected to Martin’s smartphone, his first to be examined, into the LUCERNE computer Langley Sr. commenced forensically examining everything electronically within it without having to power it on. As expected Martin’s digital video recording of the 2-2-2T locomotive firebox anomaly passed all examinations it then being “batoned” to WARREN & its operator Air Force Signals Intelligence Captain Maynard Jr. for spyware (i.e. surveillance programs) malware, adware etc. screenings, passing them all “with flying colors” it now was ready for in-depth intelligence analysis the entire LUCERNE-WARREN “digital sanitation” process taking all of 10 minutes.

Viewed earlier by Colonel Acheampong in file-copied form digitally telecommunicated to her via Captain Maynard Jr. directly off of Martin’s smartphone LUCERNE’s “processed” file of it was visually & auditory orders of magnitude more resolute than any known digital video & audio technology. Augmented by satellite communications linkage to a plethora of digitally stored visual & auditory databases of many kinds on Pentagon computers facilitating the intelligence analysis WARREN’s operator Captain Maynard Jr. could dynamically conduct in real time an almost limitless number of intelligence interpretations of the locomotive firebox anomaly presented in greater than human eye resolution (false color replicated) and in stereo sound. Right off the bat that limitless number was whittled down to just 21 data match possibilities, refined further & reduced to 7 the most promising statistically (i.e. percent confidence) was a July 8, 1957 unpublished newspaper account written by Los Angeles Examiner investigative news reporter Morton (Mort) Edmond Stanley stored in a musty old cardboard box full of other unpublished articles of his hidden in the attic of his Laguna Beach, California house by his 58 year old retired FBI Special Agent son Dean in 1993 of the middle-of-the-night miraculous appearances then disappearances of a half-ton of packed passion fruit boxes on a Santa Paula, California farm.

Hearing of the anomaly from a businessman friend in Ventura, California on Tuesday the 9th next day the 10th Mort motored to Italian-born Salvadore Lorenzo Maroni’s Santa Paula orchard for an arranged interview. Out-front claiming what he saw were “living things” he’d recited that;

“…the (passion) fruit boxes came out of thin air in a swirl of "buzzing' bright blue & orange lights they (the lights) 'eating' the fruit inside like a pack of starved coyotes…”

disappearing minutes later;

“…in a swirl of ’muted’ blues, oranges & reds accompanied by loud 'firecracker' noise…”

dull purplish light glowing from where they’d sat on the ground accompanied by great deal of heat sans odor of hot or burning passion fruit akin to what Jay & Millie saw of the 2-2-2T locomotive’s miraculous appearance out of thin air morning of February 8, 2022 & November 13, 2022 California Highway Patrol witness reports from two Pakistani & Ecuadorian big rig truckers seeing bright blue & violet glowing lights emanating from The Mefford Twins, faint light presumably blue-violet surrounding the Deutsches Luftwaffe Heinkel 177 A-5, latter claiming something ‘heavenly’ AND ‘scary’ was there, i.e. presumably ‘moving within’ the Twins.

Forthwith after reading it off of REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN Team Leader Space Force Intelligence Captain Marcy Dougan’s computer monitor Colonel Acheampong sitting kitty corner to her right got on a second USB hub bar-connected QUERTY keyboard & mouse pad accessing the monitor signaling JCS Chair Marine Corps General James Harrissey requesting him to issue an emergency order to Pentagon Electronic Archives Section 318.11.1 Unexplained Publicly Reported Phenomena Prior to 1960 to immediately & indefinitely reclassify it from Secret to Top Secret, permanently move it to OPOM Pentagon Archives 11.1 Unexplained Publicly Reported Phenomena Prior To 1960 With Current Relevance (i.e. an active paranormal investigation) his overnight Washington DC time Watch Adjutant Captain David Larson Sevareid signaling back that General Harrissey would review the request soon as possible he meantime placing a electronic “Red Flag Hold” on anyone else in the US Military accessing it other than OPOM Pentagon personnel. With this startling 20th Century news account electronically in hand Acheampong was now ready to see Jay’s, Millie’s & Marv’s Android video recordings of the 2-2-2T locomotive.

Lt. Whitman & Team Helos To Camp Grafton, 2-2-2T Smoke Pipe Strange Smells
« Reply #32 on: December 11, 2022, 12:00:10 PM »
20th Century British-Built Kenya Railways Steam Locomotive 2409's Fluted Smoke Pipe Forward Of The Boiler Tubes Mounting Plate
Similar In Layout To The Much Smaller Meeson Farms 19th Century 2-2-2T Locomotive's

Out of the “China Tent” now on the move over the Meeson farms south railroad spur the 2-2-2T locomotive pull-towed by a gas-powered Railroad Inspection Car operated by Air Force Engineering Technical Sergeant Jose Márquez-Benito, Army Corps Of Engineers Sergeant First Class Moshi Levin manning the 15-ton winch pulling it, six Air Force & Army engineers watching its wheels for signs of locking up, was smoothly rolling its way north to the 20-ton Rough Terrain Container Crane (RTCC) hundreds of feet away. At 5:01 p.m. Central Time February 8, 2022 the assemblage came parallel to the Army CH-47F Chinook on Landing Zone 2 north of Jay & Millie Meeson’s house, piloted by Army Lieutenant Guy Brooks it was warming up to transport First Lieutenant Doctor Marjorie Whitman’s ten radtechs & biotechs back to Camp Grafton South Dakota. Standing next to the open Cargo Ramp McCarthy looked on with satisfaction whilst Whitman’s medical corpsmen spirited aboard the last of their materials, equipment & tools, boarding last Whitman exchanged pleasantries with him he speaking first;

“You’re team did great work today Mae, everyone’s getting commendations. I want you promoted to Captain, will recommend doing so in writing to (Camp Grafton Commander) Colonel Nathan tomorrow. Weather’s good all the way am told; everybody keep warm, have a good flight home!”

Saluting him Doctor Whitman said she’d appreciated the ‘active situation’ field experience gained from serving with the ENDER detail;

“Mom’s proud of me serving as a ‘medic’ sir, she was a regular Army (Medical) Corpsman during (Operation) Desert Storm; thank you in behalf of ‘my’ team (of radtechs & biotechs) for us getting it today sir!”

Saluting back McCarthy looked on as she’d piled into the Chinook, Cargo Hatch Door closed behind her Pilot Lieutenant Brooks then powered-up. Lifting off at 5:05 p.m. forthwith turning in a wide arc north & heloing above a bank of low clouds vanishing into darkening eastern skies all those aboard the first military personnel to leave the Meeson farms. Meantime west of Landing Zone 2 on the railroad spur the Inspection Car pull-towing of the locomotive was making very good progress despite frigid weather transiting several hundred yards from the “China Tent” to where the RTCC was parked without incident all whist garnering incredulous OMGs (“Oh My God!”) stares & headshakes from onlooking military personnel who’d yet to see it in the round. Despite darkening skies to the east sunlit skies to the west allowed time for moving the locomotive from the spur to HARVEY Commander Major June Morant’s C-130J Command Ship, standing with other Air Force & Army engineers over the partially cleared frozen asphalt road parallel to the spur yards south of the RTCC she’d watched on whist the six Air Force & Army engineers walking in tandem with the locomotive from whence inside the “China Tent” approached perpendicular to it.

Hustling on foot from Helicopter Landing Zone 2 up to Morant Major McCarthy looked on in silence as the assemblage came to a halt at 5:18 p.m.,, Air Force Engineering Corporals Jody Hartman & Edgar Yee riding on the Inspection Car forthwith alighting from it. Working in a choreographed manner Hartman disconnected the Inspection Car tow cable from the towing triangle the whilst Yee lifted it up for Sergeant Moshi Levin to reel it back to the 15-ton winch mounted in front of the Inspection Car. Walking towards the winch whilst reeling, Moshi Levin leaving two feet of cable slack, Yee hand signaled him to stop reeling he forthwith “clipping” the cable end onto the winch’s stowing hook, hand signaling Air Force Sergeant Jose Márquez-Benito operating the Inspection Car to pull back & halt 15-feet from him he forthwith did so. Hustling back to Moshi Levin & the towing triangle together they’d “unclipped” it from the locomotive tow cables folding up & securing the latter well as the towing triangle with large nylon ties over the locomotive’s cow catcher for later use towing it into Morant’s Command Ship.

A major concern of Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A HARVEY mission planners was whether the 2-2-2T locomotive could be lifted off the Meeson railroad spur & into Morant’s C-130J Command Ship in one piece, working off available Internet photographs of the Baltimore, Maryland B&O Railroad Museum’s 1851 Wilmarth “Pioneer” well as handful of photographs take of it during the 19th Century it soon was very apparent that its spark-arresting chimney & brass whistle had to be removed to clear the “Super Herc’s” 9-foot rear cargo hatch. Researching similar period locomotive chimney & whistle attachment photographs the 2-2-2T’s chimney was held on by a of bolts underneath & around a flange mounting six inches up from the boiler, the whistle screwed on a vertical steam pipe, hand handles left & right sides of the chimney apparently it was light enough be lifted off by two men the whistle unscrewed by one or two depending on its weight & accessibility.

On & adjacent to the railbed ladders carried over from the RTCC’s C-130J transport on Landing Zone 2 ten minutes before the locomotive arrived of varying sizes were erected either side of the locomotive by a team of 4 Air Force engineers, assisted by the six Air Force & Army Engineers, Sergeants Moshi Levin & Márquez-Benito well as Corporals Hartman & Yee, the chimney & whistle were successfully unscrewed & lifted off. Peering into the boiler’s smoke pipe per Major Morant’s orders with a flashlight checking for soot Air Force Engineer Corporal Mason Letterman saw none, pushing his face in further he’d relayed what he’d seen AND smelled to his engineering team commander Air Force Lieutenant Oliver (“Ollie”) Sartre standing nearby;

“The steel inside is brand new sir, nothing out of the ordinary, only thing is the odor of hot steel akin to salty blood...”

Alarmed by the discovery Sartre forthwith got in radio contact with Morant still standing with Major McCarthy on the cleared-off asphalt road;

“Ma’am! Corporal Letterman says there’s no soot in the smoke pipe and the steel looks clean but said he’d smelled hot steel …”

Forthwith cutting him off Morant asked Ollie to put Sartre on his radio set, climbing down the ladder laying on the right side of the locomotive boiler & standing close to Letterman’s radio microphone Sartre came on;

“Corporal! DID you see ANY light glowing from inside (the pipe)? Did the steel appear to be normal coloration? Any heat pitting of it?”

Negatively replying to her questions Sartre said the only thing unusual was the smell;

“It might had been from its 'fabrication' ma’am, just stronger than the steels I’ve cut or grinded before.”

Carefully weighting his observations Morant asked him to “stay on line” whilst she’d contacted Colonel Acheampong then viewing Jay’s, Millie’s & Marv Meeson’s Android smartphone video recordings of the locomotive early that morning. Discussing possible risks associated with Sartre’s account of unusual smoke pipe smells Acheampong now having seen the Meeson’s videos surmised they like the lights in the locomotive’s firebox possibly were latent artifacts of its “miraculous” materialization probably posing no danger to military personnel working around it;

“The ‘Mefford airplanes’ (Boeing B-17G Preston’s Pride, F-4C Phantom II, Heinkel 177 A-5) emitted even stronger odors following their materializations so I’ve read, none presented dangers to those around & inside them, proceed with preparations for moving the (2-2-2T) locomotive into ‘your Super Herc’ as planned Major.”

Forthwith obeying her orders Morant ordered Lieutenant Sartre to carry on with railbed site preparations for lifting the locomotive off it with the RTCC the latter meantime having been positioned to do so within the next 10 minutes

Colonel Acheampong Et.Al. Sees The Meeson's Videos Of The 2-2-2T Locomotive
« Reply #33 on: December 13, 2022, 09:22:58 AM »
“Oh my……Oh my Lord look……They’re ‘alive’ Marcy...The bloody damn ’things’ ARE alive…!”
(Edited "Light Show" Clip From Stanley Kubrick's "2001-A Space Odyssey" Conceptualizing What Jay & Millie Meeson Saw Of The 2-2-2T Locomotive Materialization On The South Railroad Spur)

By 4:40 p.m. Central Time February 8, 2022 OPOM Pentagon Commander Colonel Acheampong & REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN Team Leader Space Force Intelligence Captain Marcy Dougan in Jay Meeson’s study cum Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) had jointly completed skimming though & “bookmarking” for further review WARREN’s 21 database match possibilities (“hits”) of Air Force Radtech Sergeant Jackson Martin’s video recording of inside the 2-2-2T locomotive’s firebox, having Mort Stanley’s 1957 unpublished Los Angeles Examiner newspaper account in hand of Salvadore Maroni’s miraculous appearance & disappearance of a half-tone of passion fruit boxes on his Santa Paula, California farm Jay Meeson’s Samsung Android Galaxy S22 Ultra video recording of the locomotive’s appearance was being readied for forensic examination.

Because the REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN electronic digital intelligence evaluation system “hogged” a stupendous amount of US military satellite signals bandwidth at multi-terabit speeds for accessing Pentagon computer digital intelligence databases just one smartphone could be forensically evaluated & its stored data “processed” at a time, knowing that LUCERNE computer operator Air Force Electronic Intelligence Interpretation Specialist Captain Joseph Langley Sr. PhD grabbed from a small & tall International Orange-colored rectangular plastic box ensconcing Jay’s, Millie’s & Marv’s Androids USB Cable No.1 plugging it in LUCERNE forthwith accessing Jay’s Android.

Within minutes every electronic component inside the Android was forensically scanned for compromised ones, two microchips of Communist Chinese origin directly linked to the phone’s digital telecommunications systems were found they bypassed with software patches. Examining each P/N Junction Cluster of them for recent transmission activity, presumably to Chinese digital intelligence “listening posts” within the USA, none had occurred within the previous 36 hours, all smartphone operating hardware forensically examined LUCERN then scanned it for data mass storage microchips.

Typically a one terabyte Universal Flash Storage eUFS 2 series another extremely thin microchip was superimposed between it & the motherboard pin sets was discovered it also of Communist Chinese origin, third of its 200 gigabytes software for operating the telecommunications microchips, third programs for copying eUFS-stored user data, third programs for encrypting it for digital transmission via the telecommunications microchips. Not at all surprised such intelligence hardware & software would be uncovered Captain Langley Sr. messaged WARREN computer operator Air Force Signals Intelligence Captain Norman Maynard Jr. PhD that the compromised microchip type was “data extractive” (i.e. copying) rather than “data modifying” (i.e. modifying user data for nefarious purposes) latter the bane of government & corporate-issued smartphones to persons of importance (vis. US elected representatives & appointed officials, corporate officers, etc.) and that his forensic examinations of the eUFS 2 series microchip P/N Junction Clusters came up “clean” (i.e. no compromises) with that he’d “piped” Jay’s video recording to WARREN for digital forensic analysis & Pentagon computer intelligence database matching.

Taking several minutes of “processing” WARREN found 11,571 database matches greater than 10% probability, refined again 4,389 were greater than 30% vast majority paranormal occurrences since  A.D. 1501, refined yet again 832 greater than 50% were found most since A.D. 1941 though none greater than 60% vast majority written accounts less detail-specific than Mort Stanley’s unpublished newspaper article. Armed with this information Captain Dougan & Colonel Acheampong jointly commenced viewing Jay’s video recording on the former’s 30-inch computer monitor sitting on the west end of the study’s cum SCIF’s 3x6 table. Digital pad mouse clicking on the video program window they’d watched in stunned silence as hundreds of tiny dots of ultraviolet light appeared forward of the spur buffer stop accompanied by an irritating high-pitched hissing sound akin to an old fashioned cathode ray television tube reverberated from the monitor’s stereo speakers, accounts of heat radiating from the locomotive the lights growing in brightness & intensity rhythmically churning ala crazed Disco dancers. Now seconds into the video Acheampong couldn’t contain her disbelief any further, speaking in a soft voice a childlike sense of wonder now took over;

“Oh my……Oh my Lord look……They’re ‘alive’ Marcy...The bloody damn ’things’ ARE alive…!”

Shaking head side-to-side in disbelief she then spoke glowingly of Jay’s & Millie’s courage in recording the miraculous event;

“They had case-hardened steel ‘balls’ maintaining cool recording this ‘thing’ Marcy! I’d be half-freak’n out by now! Oh God how I envy their nerves! Jay’s given us an intelligence bonanza Marcy, can’t wait to see Millie’s video!”

Excitedly proceeding with the viewing Dougan & Acheampong working in great haste “boxed & clicked” groups of lights of particular interest on the monitor screen digitally saving them for detailed forensic analysis Millie’s Android meantime being queued for forensic examination by LUCERNE via USB Cable No.2 whilst Acheampong heard HARVEY Commander Major June Morant’s secured radio report of “salty blood” smells emanating from inside the locomotive’s smoke pipe reported by Air Force Engineer Corporal Mason Letterman.

Within minutes every electronic component inside was forensically scanned for compromised ones again two microchips of Communist Chinese origin directly linked to the phone’s digital telecommunications systems were found & bypassed with software patches. Examining each P/N Junction Cluster of them for recent transmission activity to Chinese digital intelligence “listening posts” none had occurred within the previous 26 hours, all smartphone operating hardware forensically examined LUCERN then scanned it for data mass storage microchips. Unlike the eUFS 2 series microchip in Jay’s Android that in Millie’s wasn’t physically compromised but “buried” within the hardware Operating System was software of Communist Chinese origin operating the telecommunications microchips, programs for copying eUFS-stored user data, programs for encrypting it for digital transmission via the telecommunications microchips they bypassed with software patches Millie’s video recording then “piped” to WARREN for digital forensic analysis & Pentagon computer intelligence database matching.

Taking several minutes of “processing” WARREN found 40,286 database matches greater than 10% probability, refined again 10,335 greater than 30% were found, vast majority paranormal occurrences since  A.D. 1851, refined yet again 2,253 greater than 50% were, most since A.D. 1955 but again still none greater than 60% vast majority written accounts less detail-specific than Mort Stanley’s unpublished newspaper account, armed with this information Captain Dougan & Colonel Acheampong jointly commenced viewing the video recording on the former’s monitor. Recorded from a different angle Millie’s video included zoomed-in detail of interesting light clusters well as better audio of discordant metallic buzzes, chirps, clicks, hums, pops, scrapings, screeches, etc. some akin to sped-up water harmonica music well as pure pitch tones, now clearly obvious to Dougan & Acheampong what they were seeing was intelligence life albeit incorporeal both frantically raced to “box, click, save” as much of the ongoing screen activity as possible for detailed forensic analysis

Queued last for forensic examination by LUCERNE via USB Cable No.3 Marv Meeson’s extended early morning Android video recording of the 2-2-2T locomotive was important in documenting its physical condition very soon after its miraculous appearance on the railroad spur despite Montana Senator Stanley Daniels’ admonishments to his dad Jay for nobody else to take anymore videos of it. Twice examined for compromised electronic components none were found on Marv’s Android, including the eUSF series data mass storage microchip, extracting Marv’s digital video recording of the locomotive from it & “piped” to WARREN for digital forensic analysis & Pentagon computer intelligence database matching.

Taking several minutes of “processing” WARREN unsurprisingly found few database matches though several with respect to the B&O Railroad Museum’s 1851 Wilmarth 2-2-2T “Pioneer” it a virtual carbon copy of that on the Meeson’s south railroad spur, viewing Marv’s video Dougan & Acheampong “boxed & clicked” parts of the locomotive of particular interest on the monitor screen digitally saving them for detailed forensic analysis with respect to Jay’s & Millie’s “materialization” videos. With their work done Captains LaVern de la Torre PhD, Joseph Langley Sr. PhD, Norman Maynard Jr. PhD operating the REXALL-LUCEREN-WARREN computer systems commenced logging them off of Pentagon computers, shutting down satellite links to them de la Torre & Langley Sr. afterwards exited the study to go outside of the Meeson’s house to disassemble & reel-in the satellite dishes & cabling packing them up for transport. Returning to the study they & Captain Maynard Jr. disconnected computer & power cabling from the REXALL & LUCERNE computers packing them up well as their monitors, keyboards, touch pad mice, portable batteries, et.al. associated paraphernalia laying them on & under the 3x6 table inside the study WARREN left running for Colonel Acheampong to finish up notetaking well as running videos they’d taken of the locomotive whilst holding intelligence interviews of Jay, Millie & Marv soon as Air Force Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan & Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard & their assistants were done psychologically evaluating them & others of the Meeson clan.

OPOM's "Object 4" 2-2-2T Locomotive Now Is Aboard Major Morant's "Super Herc"
« Reply #34 on: December 16, 2022, 12:48:30 PM »
The 1923 Kabul to Darulaman Railway Henschel & Sohn 19681 0-4-0 Plinthed Locomotive Being Moved From The Afghan Nation Museum By A Motorized Crane In 2006
Conceptualizing The February 8, 2023 Air Force Rough Terrain Container Crane Move Of The Meeson Farms 2-2-2T Locomotive Off The Railroad Spur

As mentioned earlier, at 5:18 p.m. February 8, 2022 the Railroad Inspection Car cable pull-towing the 2-2-2T locomotive on the Meeson’s south railroad spur halted adjacent to the 20-ton Rough Terrain Container Crane (RTCC) for transporting it to HARVEY Commander Major June Morant’s C-130J Command Ship. Untethered from towing several Air Force Engineers surrounding the locomotive amongst them Air Force Engineering Corporals Jodie Hartman & Edgar Yee who’d cable-rigged the locomotive for pull-towing at the “China Tent” commenced a set of choreographed actions for lifting it off the railbed. The first was “loop-hooking” a 3/4th-inch thick 22-foot long padded flexible braded steel cable in between the upper spokes of the locomotive’s two cast iron drive wheels followed by loop-hooking half-inch padded ones in between the two cast iron bogie wheel spokes underneath the boiler then the two bogie wheels underneath the tinderbox. Shorter in length than the half-inch ones the 3/4th inch cables were close to the locomotive’s center of gravity, bearing half its weight they & the others converged on an fabricated flat-sided A-shaped 3/4th inch thick welded steel harness, three hook rings welded on either side for “clipping” on the cables at its apex a free-rotating flange assembly topped by a lifting ring for the RTCC’s three-fold purchase tackle block & lifting hook to grapple. Laying out the cables perpendicular to the locomotive wheels each was pull-tested by the six Air Force & Army engineers who’d escorted it from the “China Tent” under of Corporals Hartman’s & Yee’s supervision, all passing each was pulled over the railbed forward of the locomotive for serial attachment on the “A-harness” commencing with the two front bogie wheels, Hartman & Yee attaching them all within a few minutes.

Firing up the RTCC its operator Air Force Engineering Technical Sergeant Louis Duvalier drove it closer to the railbed meantime standing next to the locomotive’s cowcatcher directing its lifting Air Force Engineer Technical Sergeant Trevor Mayfield Jr. was hand signaling his assistants Corporals Jamie McDowell & Xin Waon standing either end of it to attach plastic guiding ropes on the cowcatcher & tinderbox link & pin coupler. Standing next to the A-harness Corporal Hartman hand signaled Duvalier to extend the crane boom directly over the A-harness, signaling again for him to raise it up six feet whilst Corporal Yee visually checked whether the tackle block lifting hook was centered over the A-harness lifting ring, hand signaling Duvalier to move it one foot right relative to him Yee hand signaled “OK” on its positioning. With the tackle block lifting hook properly positioned Yee hand signaled Duvalier to inch it down till the hook touched the A-harness’ lifting ring, hand signaling HALT, Hartman & Yee forthwith crouching down & lifting up the heavy A-harness up a few inches “ringing” it on the tackle block hook. Forthwith standing up & stepping back some feet Hartman & Yee together hand signaled Sergeant Mayfield Jr. to “take over” he then hand signaling Sergeant Duvalier to commence lifting the A-harness cable assembly.

Slowing lifting the assembly up & over the locomotive HARVEY Commander Major June Morant & ENDER detail Commander Kevin McCarthy standing with other Air Force & Army engineers over the partially cleared frozen asphalt road parallel to the spur yards south of the RTCC anxiously watched on as sundown approached. Lifting the locomotive off the rails at 5:37 p.m. some seconds later Hartman & Yee with the plastic guiding ropes longitudinal to it commenced walking east towards Morant’s C-130J Command Ship’s Cargo Ramp Door whist Duvalier very slowly backed the two-axle all-wheel drive RTCC away from the railbed over slushy snow-covered ground towards the asphalt roadway 40 feet way.

Best part of a minute later at the roadway’s shoulder Duvalier hand signaled Hartman & Yee that he was about to drive on the roadway in so doing queuing them to rotate the locomotive 90 degrees to the east directly at the Cargo Ramp Door back-turning the RTCC onto it from the left. Leading the locomotive rotation from the cowcatcher Yee pulled it south, Hartman from the tinderbox link & pin coupler north whilst Duvalier backed-turned the RTCC onto the roadway towards the north. Halting the RTCC over the roadway facing south Duvalier then axle-selected the RTCC’s front & rear wheels to oppose each other (i.e. front wheels turned left, rear wheels turned right) rotating it left towards the C-130J’s Cargo Door Hatch Yee & Hartman meantime rope-pulling the locomotive in the same direction, led by their “boss” Sergeant Mayfield Jr. slowly they’d traversed some 35 feet of slushy snow-covered ground all whilst moving the locomotive to far t side of the Cargo Hatch Door halting 20 feet short of it.

Amongst the Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A HARVEY mission Air Force Engineers planning the 2-2-2T locomotive’s move from the Meeson railroad spur to inside HARVEY Commander Major June Morant’s C-130J Command Ship there was considerable debate whether to use railroad T-Rail or half-inch thick flat steel plates affixed to the Cargo Ramp Door & Cargo Floor to roll it in over. Winched-in by an 20-ton pulling capacity electric motor temporarily affixed to the far forward end Cargo Floor laying 25 lb/yd, 2-3/4th inch high T-rail (lightest & shortest in height capable of bearing its weight) was the best “lightweight” solution though the rails had to be precisely spaced 4 feet 8-1⁄2 inches apart (i.e. railroad standard gauge) from inside the railheads & affixed to the Cargo Ramp Door & Cargo Floor up to the winch, fabricated steel “rail bends” clamped on their leading & trailing edges to bridge the aircraft’s door-floor seam.

Before the locomotive could be “reeled” into the airplane a 20-foot section of ridged steel bar reenforced fabricated railroad track needed to be placed in front of the Cargo Door Hatch for placing the locomotive on, connected to the hatch by fabricated steel rail bends a 5-1/2 wide by 3 foot long half-inch thick steel plate placed underneath the tracks butting-up to the hatch door for stability. Prior to departing Mountain Home Site 29-A the rail bends, railroad track & steel plate was fabricated, lingering concerns whether the rail bends were strong & flexible enough to accommodate the locomotive’s weight resolved by torque-testing them up to 200% of design capacity.

An hour before the 2-2-2T locomotive was lifted off the railbed Air Force & Army engineers et.al. had cleared-off all snow 30 feet to the west of Morant’s C-130J Command Ship Cargo Door Hatch for laying the fabricated railroad track on albeit soggy ground. Laboriously lifting & spiriting the 5-1/2 by 3 foot steel plate out of the airplane & laying it on the ground in front of the hatch the engineers then laid the reenforced railroad tracks over it those skilled at metalworking affixing the rail bends on the ground tracks to T-rails on the hatch then those the hatch on the aircraft’s Cargo Floor in that order.

The locomotive now parallel to the left side of & 5 feet from the railroad tracks Sergeant Mayfield Jr. hand signaled Sergeant Duvalier to swing the RTCC crane boom & locomotive 5 feet to the right over the railroad tracks whilst Corporals Yee & Hartman with the plastic guiding ropes aligned its wheels over the T-rails. Inching the RTCC forward Duvalier obeyed Mayfield Jr.’s  hand signals directing him to move the boom a few inches farther to the right, forthwith doing so Mayfield Jr. thumb-up hand signaled that they were properly aligned, moving forward several feet more Mayfield Jr. hand signaled Duvalier to very slowly lower the locomotive onto the T-rails, gingerly doing so whilst Yee & Hartment pulling their ropes aligned it parallel the tracks all six wheels dropped simultaneously & squarely in place over them, the tracks forthwith sinking an inch into the bare soft & freezing cold ground from its weight.

As mentioned earlier, the Railroad Inspection Car fitted with an electric winch for pull-towing the locomotive was jointly operated by Air Force Engineering Technical Sergeant Márquez-Benito & Army Corps Of Engineers Sergeant Moshi Levin, untethered from it the car was quickly disassembled by Márquez-Benito, Air Force & Army engineers its parts hand carried across 80 feet of slippery cold slushy snow storing them aboard the C-130J transporting the RTCC afterwards rushing south to Jay & Millie Meeson’s house parking lot in the Meeson’s Ford F-250 pickups to assist Major Doctor Edward Sung Kim’s radtechs & biotechs with loading gear (i.e. materials, equipment & tools) & “F-Tents” onto the Meeson’s John Deere tractor-trailers for transport north to the C-130J for biological warfare personnel & their gear on Landing Zone 3. Staying with the locomotive Moshi Levin who’s MOS included skillfully operating powered winches under difficult conditions would now operate the winch inside Morant’s C-130J reeling in the locomotive, now on the tracks the process of winching the 2-2-2T locomotive aboard Major Morant’s C-130J Command Ship was about to commence.

Removing the plastic guiding ropes attached to the locomotive’s cowcatcher, tinderbox link & pin coupler, cutting off nylon ties securing the folded-up braded steel tow cables & towing triangle over the cow catcher, Corporals Hartman & Yee then unfolded & stretched the cables over the railroad tracks in front of the cowcatcher “clipping” them on the triangle end rings. Dragged out minutes earlier by Moshi Levin & his assistant Air Force Engineer Corporal Henry Morrison laying in front of the triangle apex tow ring on the railroad tracks was the tow hook at the end of a half-inch cable unreeled from the 20-ton pulling capacity electric winch affixed to the “Super Herc’s” Cargo Floor, hooked on & pull-tested by Moshi he then hustled back to the winch whilst Morrison stood on the far port side of the Cargo Floor aft of the aircraft’s door-floor seam as his spotter. Hand signaling Hartman & Yee to stand clear of the railroad tracks Morrison the hand signaled Moshi Levin to reel the cable, lifting the cables & tow triangle off the railbed Hartman, Yee & Morrison carefully watch for uneven cable alignments & tension, none seen Morrison hand signaled Moshi Levin to commence reeling in the winch cable.

Reeling in the cable at the rate of one foot per two seconds the locomotive rolled towards the Cargo Door Hatch, buckling under its weight the railroad tracks sank in another half-inch into the bare soft & freezing cold ground Hartman & Yee hand forthwith hand signaling Morrison for Moshi Levin to halt winching Moshi Levin forthwith doing so. Inspecting the tracks with LED flashlights Hartman & Yee jointly concluded the sinkage wasn’t enough to abort reeling in the locomotive Hartman then hand signaling Morrison for Moshi Levin to resume reeling in the cable Moshi Levin forthwith doing so. Coming up on the 5-1/2 wide by 3 foot long half-inch thick steel plate placed underneath the tracks butting up to the Cargo Door Hatch the locomotive’s front bogie wheels abruptly lifted up though not enough for the drive wheels to lift off the T-rails, coming up on the railroad track-Cargo Door Hatch fabricated steel rail bends Hartman hand signaled Morrison for Moshi Levin to halt winching Moshi Levin forthwith doing so. Standing either side of the railroad tracks looking at the rail bends Hartman hand signaled Morrison for Moshi Levin to resume reeling in at the rate of one foot per 3 seconds Moshi Levin forthwith doing so, rolling over the rail bends the front bogie wheels screeched whist passing over them, up on the Cargo Door Hatch they’d screeched more whilst the drive wheels lifted two inches above the T-rails, fully expecting that to happen Hartman, Yee & Morrison looked on as the front half of the locomotive rolled up the Cargo Door Hatch.

At this point Sergeant Morrison took over responsibility for supervising the locomotive tow cable reeling Hartman & Yee now observers watching for T-rail misalignments & wheel slippages he then hand signaling Moshi Levin to slow the reeling rate to one foot per 5 seconds whilst Hartman & Yee observed the tinderbox bogie wheels now bearing 2/3rds the locomotives weight roll over the railroad track-Cargo Door Hatch fabricated steel rail bends, doing so without incident the locomotive now was entirely on the Cargo Door Hatch T-rails. Up on the edge of the Cargo Door Floor affixed to it in between the T-rails was a 2-inch diameter by 4-foot 4-inch long piece of steel pipe spanning most of the track bed acting as a tow cable bumper loud screeching noises emanating from it whilst the locomotive was being towed up the Cargo Door Floor. Slowly coming up upon it Morrison hand signaled Moshi Levin to slow the reeling rate to one foot per 7 seconds Morrison & the C-130J’s Loadmaster Sergeant Mark Bowen heretofore standing on the far starboard side of the Cargo Floor 10 feet in from its edge watching for abnormal cable flexing quickly walking aft & across from Morrison both now checking the hatch-floor rail bends for over-stressing & overhead clearances of the locomotive being reeled into the aircraft’s fuselage.

Loudly screeching whilst being dragged over the steel buffer pipe on the Cargo Floor the winch cable & tow triangle now flexed straight from the winch reel to the front bogie wheels the latter’s howling whist transiting over the hatch-floor rail bends Morrison & Bowen meantime eyeing them closely for stress cracks, none seen Morrison hand signaled Moshi Levin to continue the cable reeling. Cresting the rail bends the bogie wheels then lifted two inches off the T-rails as the drive wheels followed, cresting the rail bends scant seconds later the drive wheels “dry pumping” the steam pistons in their chambers for a split second the only ones on the rails those of the tinderbox also lifting off the rails, the most dangerous moment of the entire locomotive cable pulling operation having passed they’d landed back on the rails in good order the front bogie wheels now having traction the tinderbox bogie wheels silently touching the rail bends seconds later whilst transiting over them.

With all the locomotive wheels now on the Cargo Floor T-rails Morrison hand signaled Moshi Levin to speed reeling in to one foot every 4-1/2 seconds, forthwith doing so the locomotive moved towards the aircraft’s center of gravity marked out by white chalk lines over the T-rail heads & either side of them & on the Cargo Floor adjacent to them. Standing either side Morrison & Bowen watched on as the drive wheels approached, hand signaling HALT to Moshi Levin at 5:57 p.m. just as the drive wheels passed over the chalk marks Morrison then verbally directed Bowen to hook on a two-hook quarter-inch braded steel hand puller from the tinderbox link & pin coupler to a hook ring affixed on the Cargo Floor three feet aft of the coupler, forthwith doing so Bowen “jacked” it just enough to equalized pull-pressure with the winch cable to keep the locomotive from rolling. Other cable stays would soon be “thrown” on it further securing it for flight but for now “Object 4”, its official OPOM Pentagon code name, was now US Government property never to be seen nor video recorded by the Meesons nor the general public ever again.

Jay, Millie, Marv See WARREN 2-2-2T Locomotive Videos, Naomi Debriefs Them
« Reply #35 on: December 21, 2022, 12:09:00 AM »
“Yes ‘they’ ARE alive my very old friends, but ARE ‘they’ sentient?”


By 5:30 p.m. February 8, 2022 Air Force Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan & Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard & their non-commissioned officer (i.e. Sergeant medical specialist) assistants were wrapping up their psychological evaluations of Meeson clan members in Jay & Millie’s house game room & den regarding the 2-2-2T locomotive’s miraculous appearance early that morning thanking them all for their cooperation afterwards. Finished with viewing Jay’s, Millie’s & Merv Meeson’s video recordings of the 2-2-2T locomotive some 20 minutes earlier OPOM Pentagon Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong & Mountain Home AFB Site 29-B Assistant Commander Major June Morant’s four Pentagon Intelligence Officers inside Jay’ study, a Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, were packing up their equipment in briefcases, bags & hard plastic containers of various shapes except for the WARREN computer & associated hardware it left operating though not connected to Pentagon computers via satellite link at Acheampong’s orders for a private intelligence debriefing with Jay, Millie & Marv. Secure radio signaled by Doctor Ranganathan that he, Captain Bullard & their assistants had completed their medical tasks and were departing Acheampong, Space Force Captains Marcy Dougan & LaVern de la Torre who’s MOS’ included conducting human intelligence gathering & analysis left the study for the game room & den just as Doctor Ranganathan et.al. was approaching the house Reception Room front door. Briefly exchanging pleasantries Acheampong thanked him et.al. for efficiently conducting their tasks Doctor Ranganathan et.al. forthwith leaving the house for Tent F-1 Radiological & Biological Medical Operations Command Center on the parking lot next to it to confer with Air Force Medical Service Major Doctor Edward Sung Kim on the examination results.

Walking into the game room Acheampong introduced & de la Torre & Dougan to Meeson clan members stating that their jobs were to interview them as a group for military intelligence gathering purposes their experiences “working around” the locomotive earlier that morning then asking Jay, Millie & Merv to come with her into Jay’s study. Walking together south though the house & entering Jay & Millie’s bedroom Acheampong stopped them at Jay’s study closed door, looking at them sternly she’d spoke;

“Your study Jay is a Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility and as such is under US military jurisdiction until ‘we’ leave it. As retired military still holding Top Secret clearances Marv understands the protocols associated with the management of such facilities, given that you Jay & Millie don’t I’ll explain that to enter them you must have appropriate security clearances to do so. Since neither of you have them but extraordinarily know everything concerning the locomotive’s paranormal appearance you both along with Merv have been granted Top Secret clearance to view your video recordings again on the monitor of a Top Secret military computer behind this door to facilitate your intelligence debriefings. As part of the clearance conditions all of you are legally bound to confidentially  not to discuss with anyone what you’ve recorded under penalty of civil and/or military law and as such are required to sign clearance agreements before we leave.”

Appreciating the gravity of her statement as a military veteran Jay asked where the agreement documents were, replying they’d be reading & signing in his study before running the video recordings, hearing no other questions Acheampong opened the door letting them inside. Facing them on the near end of the 3x6 foot table at the center of the study was the 30-inch computer monitor, QUERTY keyboard & mouse formerly operated by Captain Dougan (duplicate ones for Acheampong having been packed up) to its left the WARREN computer. Shrouded by a black drop cloth hiding it behind & perpendicular to it the WARREN computer its 34-inch monitor, keyboard, mouse & associated hardware, including the 30-inch monitor, keyboard & mouse were interconnected by heavily shielded electric cables & powered by portable battery banks underneath the table, operating it sitting to its right was  Captain Norman Joseph Maynard Jr. Because the REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN electronic digital intelligence evaluation system was Top Secret it & all associated hardware had to be guarded by Morant’s Intelligence Officers, laying about the study floor & on the table packed for transport Captains Langley Sr. & Maynard Jr. standing at the far east end of the study did so whilst Acheampong was conducting Jay’s, Millie’s & Marv Meeson’s intelligence debriefings.

Single line filing into the study Acheampong followed by Jay & Millie, Marv behind them closing & locking the door, sat down in front of the now turned off 30-inch monitor, Jay, Millie & Marv in that order moving up to & standing semi-circular behind her. Forthwith pulling form behind the monitor a stack of clipboards with the security clearance documents Acheampong told them to “take their time” reading it before signing them, doing as she’d recommended within 5 minutes all had read & signed them without comment. Retrieving & placing them behind the monitor she then glanced at Captain Maynard Jr. to turn on the computer monitor it displaying a single three-sectioned window with static “thumbnail” images of Jay’s, Millie’s & Marv’s video recordings Acheampong then “pulling up” a separate smaller “notepad” window to its right for typing down their intelligence debriefing comments.

Speaking first Acheampong  said that all three video recordings would be running concurrently to save time on debriefings and that Jay’s & Millie’s videos were going to be run at 60% of recording speed to facilitate freeze-framing of frenetic light movements;

“You’ll also see ‘false colorations’ of light wavelengths the Android’s cameras detected outside the range of human vision, sometimes referred to as ‘digital noise’ it’s been ‘computer processed’ into meaningful visual information directly associated with the moving lights in the videos, how that’s done is highly classified so all of you must never reveal to anyone what you’re about the see!”

Also mentioning the monitor will display technical readouts of many kinds associated with video recordings she again admonished them to never reveal to anyone what they’d seen, with that Acheampong glanced at Captain Maynard Jr. to commence WARREN computer playbacks of their video recordings.

All eyes riveted on the monitor screen seconds into the run Millie gasped at the vivid false light colorations of the hundreds of tiny dots of ultraviolet light forward of the railroad spur buffer stop of Jay’s video.  Intently listening to his recorded comments of them quickly changing size & shape, the now clearly seen gradual appearances of orange-white globe-things ‘crawling up’ from bottom of the light mass sculpting the mass from inside out he exclaiming that the “…Damn buggers are alive!” Silently agreeing amongst themselves that indeed they were alive Jay, Millie & Marv held back from saying so out loud in front of Colonel Acheampong knowing from her childhood she was a “born skeptic of everything”, a born “mind reader” as well she’d spared them the words;

“Yes ‘they’ ARE alive my very old friends, but ARE ‘they’ sentient?”

they forthwith looking at each other with astonishment Acheampong at this point commencing a joint intelligence debriefing of them whilst watching the video recording. Moving though Jay’s video at points she’d halted it to ask Jay knowing of his love of 19th Century steam locomotives what he thought the “lights” were doing “constructing the 2-2-2T locomotive;

“My guess is they’re ‘assembling’ it from inside-out starting from the bottom of the boiler up then down, the ‘orange globes’ seem to be ‘anchor points’ where ‘construction work’ radiates out from…”

Draw-selecting a rectangular boxed-off section of three large bright blue-orange-white light disks formed either side of the irregular horizontal light line demarking where the “construction work” radiated up & down from Acheampong digitally enlarged it, boxing-off the center disk & enlarging it she’d pointed out to the Meesons a starfish-shaped cluster of intense pulsating blue-orange lights in the center dividing & branching out into yet more light clusters, heavily pixilated it clearly was apparent they were “forming” the locomotive’s drive wheels. Some seconds earlier Millie’s video recording of the lights came on the monitor screen window’s middle section, running in synchrony with Jay’s video Millie’s focused on particularly interesting light clusters notably those “forming” the firebox, boiler steam pipes, steam piston & its cylindrical chamber; remembering Jay’s recorded comments about heat radiating from the lights Acheampong paused the videos asking what he’d meant by that;

“Jay! Did you mean the heat radiated from the lights or from the air around them, this is important!”

Replying that he thought it was radiating from the lights he’d added that the heat intensified every time new lights appeared and that the heat beamed out from rather than randomly radiating from the lights;

“The heat felt like it was being directed like a heat lamp, no snow melted underneath the lights. There wasn’t any heat sheen on the snow, you’d expect it to be glassy were heat passed over it say like from a blow torch, it also pulsated like a Vibromassage, darn lights weren’t so scarry they’d be great for arthritis (treating)!”

Agreeing with his commentary Millie added that the lights “moved purposely but not mechanically” in her mind suggesting communication was occurring between them, holding a Master’s degree in Farm Medicine Millie knew animal communication takes place in many forms & levels not always in synchrony suggesting that the lights could be colonies of “living things” albeit incorporeal cooperating with each other but squabbling amongst themselves at times;

“They don’t behave like machines Naomi, looks more like ‘construction workers’ working off design plans ‘arguing’ with their supervisors over plan details!”

Running another 25 seconds Millie spontaneously pointed to a monitor screen window close up she’d recorded of the steam boiler pipes being formed, asking Acheampong if she could draw-select it & the steam piston cylinder & enlarge them Acheampong using the touchpad mouse draw-selected it dragging the widow above the steam boiler pipes window whilst slowing playing speed for both down to a microsecond with a mouse slider control on the window’s right side;

“See these five ‘light colonies’ Naomi? Look how they’d subdivided forming other (discontinuous) blobs of (blue-violet light) dots, they’re forming & dissolving & reforming whilst changing colors! Notice the lines of white lights ‘laying’ into the blobs; can you slow down the video more to see what they’re doing?”

Acheampong forthwith slowing video play a nanosecond ten thousands of microscopic frenetically moving scythes of white light now could be seen, asking her to slow down playing speed for the steam piston cylinder window pointing to a small cluster composed of a few hundred white scythes at the lower right window separate from the larger mass of scythes Millie noticed something remarkable;

“Look there Naomi! See the white things (scythes) touching the (blue-violet light) dots then pull back they (the dots) changing colors (i.e. from blue-violet to blue-orange light)? dots, that’s communication in my book! I’ll take a bet they’re ‘arguing with the bosses’ (i.e. ‘construction foremen’) over ‘the blueprints’ (plans) for making a locomotive part, Jay would know which one.”

Looking at the u-shaped steam slider valve forming above the right side steam piston cylinder Millie had pointed out Jay asked Acheampong to zoom in on it & rewind the video, forthwith doing so with the mouse touchpad Acheampong reset it 10 seconds earlier via a mouse slider control on the window’s right side, single-clicking the control I-beam to resume play. Intently watching the monitor screen Jay zeroed-in on a portion of the u-shaped steam valve where to him it appeared misshaped & misaligned over a steam inlet canal into the piston chamber remarking that the slider was too short;

“I’d read that was an issue with early steam locomotives like the 2-2-2T, too short or too long either way it meant the piston wasn’t getting maximum ‘head pressure’ during each stroke. Me thinks it’s a fabrication mistake ‘these things’ made then corrected ‘on the fly’ somehow knowing about how the valve was meant to efficiently operate, engineering knowledge ‘they’ somehow learned from us humans perhaps. Regardless how ‘they’ did to me it proves they’re not ‘perfect beings’ and that’s both reassuring AND frightening if you know what I mean!”

Frantically typing down Jay’s & Millie comments on the monitor screen “notepad” window of their intelligence debriefing comments up till now Acheampong hadn’t asked Marv to comment on his folks’ video recordings, silently analyzing what he’d seen so far he then spoke up reminding those present what they’re “seeing” were photons and not living things;

“I don’t think they’re ‘living lights,’ maybe manifestations of Superstring Theory? Without getting technical is about ‘elemental’ subatomic particles such as photons, electrons & quarks, latter making up protons & neutrons, made up of unimaginatively tiny supersymmetric strings (i.e. at Planck-scale 10 to the minus 33rd centimeter long) vibrating at varying resonate frequencies. I’m not ‘playing’ sub-atomic physicist but maybe animal psychologist if you’d pardon me Mom; we’re looking at a form of sub-atomic life possibly down to the superstring level!”

“What Mom saw suggesting communication was occurring between the lights if it’s down to superstring level its everywhere, bit distressing knowing the atoms making me up & possibly my very thoughts are made up of the same things as these ‘super-intelligent worms’ squabbling with each other over ‘manufacturing’ a steam engine sliding valve!”

Flabbergasted at his statement Millie gasped at the notion of sub-atomic life whilst looking left sideways at Marv, Jay also turning his head looking left, Colonel Acheampong turning around on her chair to the left all looking at him well as Captains Langley Sr. & Maynard Jr., not yet fully grasping the import of his postulation though understating it now was impossible to “manage” paranormal artifacts as National Security Threats ala OPOM Objects 1 to 4 (i.e. the three Mefford airplanes & 2-2-2T locomotive) through conventional means (i.e. physically sequestering & hiding them away from public view) knowing that such sub-atomic life could do anything they’d wanted to against or for the security of United States Of America not replying to Marv’s postulation Acheampong disturbed but not facially showing it turned around to the computer monitor forthwith resuming Jay’s & Millie’s video recordings for completing the intelligence debriefings

As Jay’s & Millie’s video recordings progressed Acheampong asked them additional questions about the lights, i.e. spotting other ‘organized activity’ suggesting ‘things’ other than white scythes, mentioning Millie saw green-yellow “spidery things” many times larger than the scythes “controlling’ groups of the latter she’d mentioned that they’d go away soon as parts of the locomotive formed into recognized shapes, e.g. the brass locomotive whistle;

“The whistle was ‘formed’ branching up from a forming steam pipe, if I had to guess the lights were assembling it from the inside out. It’s the same as looking at time-lapse photography of an animal baby embryo developing from inside out but maybe atom-by-atom here. Its truly beautiful to witness but frighting to think that ‘these things’ can create inanimate objects like a brass train whistle that itself possibly is made out of living things. What Marv said a minute ago greatly disturbed me, how does one reconcile possibly knowing that everything at its deepest level possibly is ‘living’, maybe even intelligent? I can’t see any more of our (i.e. hers & Jay’s) videos Naomi, can I sit down away from the monitor?”

Forthwith allowing her to sit down in a chair to her right Acheampong resumed the intelligence briefings with Jay & Marv of Jay’s & Millie’s video recordings, finishing the briefings start to end taking 15 minutes Acheampong then ran Marv’s daytime video recording of the 2-2-2T locomotive. Focusing in on the heat radiating from it well as steam out of the chimney funnel Acheampong asked Merv whether he thought the heat was being ‘directed’ and what caused the steam;

“Yes it was thinking back, felt no heat from it over my feet, no melted snow either, heat sheen all around it however. I did notice that the (south) spur buffer stop had heat scorching but didn’t ‘film’ it, if directed heat went anywhere it was perpendicular to the locomotive possibly explaining why Mom & Dad’s bedroom & window panes got so hot but it doesn’t explain why their wasn’t massive heat scorching of house paint, maybe ‘those living things’ wanted them to ‘stay warm’ this morning! The steam I only can guess is heat venting out the boiler & smoke box hitting the cold air unless ‘the things’ wanted to make ‘dramatic conclusion’ to the locomotive’s materialization.”

Specifically asking Marv about the firebox door being closed whilst filming the cab & boiler backhead Acheampong brought up Jay’s audio comments 3 minutes into the anomaly, i.e. lights changing from bright violets, blues, oranges & white to yellows & reds accompanied by lower heat, less irritating noises, cooler light colorations punctuated by rapid flashes of blue-orange light emanating from the steam boiler firebox accompanied by crackling noises akin to fireworks;

“They were vivid Colonel, we’d gone over them few minutes ago (during the debriefing). I couldn’t guess why so much ‘firebox activity’ other than maybe the firebox metal is high temperature-resistant, ‘those things’ may had problems fabricating it. Why ‘they’d’ closed the firebox door I’d guess was to keep the metal from ‘cooling’ too quickly; if the metal’s atoms really are made out of ‘living things’ they’d have be ‘adapted’ to being really hot then cold later after the fire has gone out!”

Raising her right eyebrow to his commentary ala a crime detective discovering an important clue whilst typing it down on the monitor screen notepad Acheampong then spoke to the Meesons regarding their commentary as a whole;

“You three today have laid the foundations for the most challenging scientifically investigative effort in human history in proving the hypothesis that there indeed is sub-atomic life. These ‘things’ revealed themselves this morning to you Jay & Millie in a way that borders on the religious if not so, ‘they’ didn’t have to but they did for whatever reasons. Those big rig truckers who’d saw the Mefford airplane materializations last November came on scene late in the process, you’d videorecorded the locomotive’s beginning to end & afterwards in the case of Marv’s video, really am glad you’d disregarded Senator Daniel’s admonishment not to take any more videos Marv!”

“Theirs decades if not centuries of research material here (in the video recordings) for ‘eggheads’ (scientists) to ‘chew over’, time’s running short so I’ll end the intelligence debriefings now unless any of you have anything else to add.”

Forthwith looking at each other Jay, Millie & Marv shook their heads no, done with the briefings Acheampong hand signaled Captain Maynard Jr. to switch off the WARREN computer, monitors & associated hardware, turning around to her right facing Jay, Millie & Marv she’d gave them “the bad news” about their Android smartphones;

“We have to keep them unfortunately, for now they’re classified Top Secret. I can’t say whether you’ll ever get them back, including the digital data on them, am so sorry about that, truly! You all will be receiving new Androids of the same model by week’s end by a US Military courier, I’ll personally make sure you will!”

“Captains Dougan & de la Torre & likely have finished their intelligence debriefings of your (other) family members by now; I don’t have time to visit them before departing but I want to thank all of you for your cooperation today. Major McCarthy’s & Morant’s personnel should be well along with their ‘packing up’, she’ll be taking off soon with ‘her’ the Captains, I’ll be heloing (helicoptering) out also soon. With that all of you are dismissed & released to go about your lives. I’ll tell you honestly what I’d seen today (on the video recordings) has changed mine in ways that can’t be articulated other than to say like June Morant I’d want to retire & leave it to younger others in the military the business of ‘chasing down’ paranormal objects!”

Standing up & facing Jay & Millie Acheampong gave them a hug both in gratitude for having put up with the heavy military presence on their farmlands and for being lifelong friends, turning to Marv she’d shaked his hand for having made it possible via Senator Daniels & other Meesons family members helping out in ‘loaning’ their Ford F-250 pickups & John Deere tractor-trailers for military use. Asking them to leave the study whilst packing up the WARREN computer & associated hardware for transport they'd returned to the game room & den just as Dougan & de la Torre were finishing up their interviews. Forthwith expressing gratitude & thanks to them well as to the Meeson clan Dougan & de la Torre then headed to the study to assist Langley Sr. & Maynard Jr. cart & hand carry the REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN electronic digital intelligence evaluation system & associated hardware outside Jay & Millie’s house to an awaiting Meeson F-250 on the parking lot for transport to Major June Morant’s C-130J Command Ship.

Ender Detail & HARVEY Personnel Depart The Meeson Farms - Missions Completed
« Reply #36 on: December 22, 2022, 11:03:49 AM »

"...be hell if another ‘whatever’ showed up on the folk’s property tomorrow morning, far as I’m concerned the damn loco was more than one too many!"

Walking in line out of Jay Meeson’s study at 6:03 p.m. February 8, 2023 HARVEY Commander Major June Morant’s Pentagon Intelligence Captains Space Force Intelligence Captain Marcy Dougan PhD, Space Force Satellite Communications Specialist Captain LaVern de la Torre PhD, Air Force Electronic Intelligence Interpretation Specialist Captain Joseph Langley Sr. PhD, Air Force Signals Intelligence Captain Norman Joseph Maynard Jr. PhD lead by OPOM Pentagon Commander Colonel Naomi Deladem Acheampong entered Jay & Millie’s house Reception Room. Greeted for the last time & sent off by Jay, Millie, Marv, Evans, their wives Kay Louise & Julie Deanne, Ev’s youngest daughter 9-year old Mildred Jean by the double door front entrance well as rest of the Meeson clan in the room, spontaneously breaking out a great big smile of thanks to her dear old friends Acheampong said;

“Thank you all and good bye, DO hope I’ll be seeing you all again soon!”

whilst Kay & Julie opened both doors for them to go out. Now past sunset and very cold outside Acheampong & company rushed out to an awaiting Meeson family Ford F-250 pickup driven by Air Force Engineer Corporal Margaret Lazar bound for Major June Morant’s C-130J Command Ship Colonel Acheampong rode along with them to her awaiting Air Force Sikorski MH-60G Pave Hawk over Helicopter Landing Zone 3 set up that morning by Marv, Ev, wives Kay & Julie for heloing (helicoptering) back to Ellsworth AFB and from there to Joint Base Andrews Maryland flying overnight on board a Northrop Grumman T-38C Talon.

Out on Jay & Millie’s house parking lot Air Force & Army engineers were busy loading up the last Paranormal Object Radiological & Biological Warfare Operations Facilities (PORBOFs, i.e. “Facilities” a.k.a. “F-Tents”) & associated gear (i.e. materials equipment & tools) onto Meesons’ John Deere tractors-trailers & F-250s for transport & loading aboard the Lockheed C-130J Super Hercules over Landing Zone 4 1,100 feet north. Standing beside the F-250 assigned to transport Acheampong & the Intelligence Captains Corporal Lazar assisted them loading onto its flatbed the Top Secret REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN electronic digital intelligence evaluation system & associated hardware et.al. items,  piling aboard afterwards Lazar with Acheampong sitting to her right drove off into the dark onto the slushy snow covered asphalt service road paralleling east side of the railroad spur. Halting several seconds later in front of the MH-60G helicopter Acheampong bolted out & hustled over snowy ground to it & climbed aboard, forthwith donning her T-38 Talon fight helmet & strapping in she then radio signaled Major Morant aboard “her” C-130J on Landing Zone 1 that she was taking off. Wishing her “good flying” to Ellsworth AFB Morant added that she’d be in contact with her from Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A the next day, wishing Morant “good flying” to Mountain Home Acheampong then signaled Pilot Captain Roger Zillis IV to power up blowing up clouds of snow whilst doing so, lifting off at 6:12 p.m. Zillis looped right 180 degrees whilst gaining altitude heading due west into the twilight hers the second aircraft to depart the Meeson farms.

Driving on several yards more Lazar came upon parked John Deere tractor-trailers & F-250s hauling PORBOFs & associated gear, Air Force Medical Service Major Doctor Edward Sung Kim, his 13 radtechs & biotechs, Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan, Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard & their non-commissioned officer (i.e. Sergeant medical specialist) assistants making their way north to C-130J Landing Zones 3 & 4, hung up waiting for the 20-ton Rough Terrain Container Crane (RTCC) that lifted & moved the 2-2-2T locomotive off the railroad spur into Major June Morant’s C-130J Command Ship on Landing Zone 1 to be loaded aboard the C-130J on Landing Zone 2 Lazar also had to wait for ENDER detail Commander Major Kevin McCarthy’s Army engineers making their way north in other F-250s to retrieve landing field markers Landing Fields 3 & 4 determined earlier not to be necessary for C-130Js to safely take off in the dark over snow-covered farmland to pass them on the left.

Waiting some minutes for the RTCC to be moved off the roadway traffic Lazar resumed motoring north with the John Deere’s & other F-250s, coming up on Landing Zone 1 Major Morant & “her” four Air Policemen commanded by Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica stood on the C-130J’s Cargo Door Hatch waiting for her behind Morant the locomotive, its arresting exhaust chimney funnel & brass whistle carried by hand from the railbed over slushy snow covered ground & the asphalt road near hour earlier now securely tied down on the aircraft’s Cargo Floor, reenforced railroad tracks, steel plate, rail bends et.al. hardware associated with getting it on board stowed aboard ‘her” ship as well. Turning right off the asphalt roadway onto slushy snow covered ground Lazar halted the pickup yards short of it, forthwith piling out “her Captains” assisted by “her ship’s” Loadmaster Sergeant Mark Bowen & crewmen quickly unloaded & hauled onboard all the REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN electronic digital intelligence evaluation system & associated hardware  et.al. items securely tying it down on the Cargo Floor.

Everyone now onboard the C-130J & strapped in for flight Morant signaled Bowen to raise the Cargo Door Hatch & Pilot Captain John Louderman to fire-up the ship’s four 4,637 shaft horsepower Rolls-Royce AE 2100D3 turboprop engines. Meantime over on Landing Zone 2 the C-130J containing the RTCC POSOC already was powered up for flight, commanded by Captain Henry Touji Abe who’s great-grandfather was Imperial Japanese Naval Admiral Mitsumasa Yonai on his mother’s side Morant radio signaled him to hold off from taking off first, powered up for flight minutes later Louderman radio signaled Abe that he was taking out. Releasing the wheel brakes & roaring downfield throwing up clouds of snow Louderman’s C-130J “Super Herc’s” landing lights lit up airfield markers placed earlier in the day by Army Major Kevin McCarthy’s engineers with Evans, wife Julie & oldest son Dale Meeson assistance, lifting off at 6:21 p.m. twenty-one minutes past sunset Captain Abe’s aircraft closely followed lifting off at 6:23 p.m., arcing south & executing sweeping right 180 degree turns whilst forming up they’d headed southwest towards Mountain Home AFB all those aboard flying in the third & fourth aircraft to depart the Meeson farms settling in for the uncomfortably cold 2 hour 15 minute trip there much of it in foul nighttime winter weather.

Assigned command of Meeson farms military operations of upon departure of HARVEY Commander Major Morant Paranormal Object Site Operations Commander Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell’s task was to supervise the flyouts of Air Force Medical Service Major Doctor Edward Sung Kim, his 13 radtechs & biotechs, Psychiatrist Major Doctor Tanvir Ranganathan, Psychologist Captain Norma Bullard & their non-commissioned officer (i.e. Sergeant medical specialist) assistants, the Air Force Engineers & all their materials, equipment & tools well as making sure per Morant’s orders that the Meeson clan’s six each John Deere tractor-trailers & Ford F-250 pickups, including Jay & Millie’s two pickups on their house parking lot, were cleaned off & returned to them in good order well as assisting them in storing away the disassembled “China Tent” & John Deere vehicles in southmost of three prefabricated metal crib sheds containing farm operations & maintenance materials, tools & equipment on the south farm (Jay & Millie’s farm south of US Route 14 east of 355th Avenue) next to four grain silos. Just as importantly Maxwell’s personnel also were to assist ENDER detail Army Corps Of Engineers Major Kevin McCarthy’s Military Policemen (MPs) commanded by Master Sergeant Doris LaMonica well as the now very tired & cold Army engineers retrieve airfield markers et.al. associated hardware so they could “helo home” to Camp Grafton ASAP they having been on the Meeson farms since before 12:40 p.m.

Crawling over slushy snow covered asphalt in dark freezing cold air past the C-130J over Landing Zone 2 transporting the Rough Terrain Container Crane followed by Captain Maxwell’s aircraft over Landing Zone 3 shortly after 6:10 p.m. the caravan of four John Deere tractor-trailers & six F-250s transporting HARVEY mission medical personnel & their gear (i.e. materials, tools & equipment) well as the disassembled “China Tent” arrived next to the C-130J on Landing Zone 4. Forthwith alighting the vehicles the medical personnel assisted by Air Force & Army engineers carried their gear aboard the “Super Herc” & stowing it afterwards taking their assigned flight stations whilst the tractor-trailers & F-250s were being moved to the now lighted-up storage crib sheds for cleaning & fueling the “China Tent” stowed away as well by Air Force & Army engineers per Jay’s, Marv’s & Evans’ instructions radio relayed to Captain Maxwell via Major Morant earlier in the day the now cleaned & fueled F-250s driven by other Air Force engineers then transporting the Army ones to Major McCarthy’s CH-47F on Helicopter Landing Zone 1 on the way collecting material Marv et.al. used to mark out Helicopter Landing Zones 2 & 3 before arriving on Jay & Millie Meeson’s house parking lot.

Meantime out on the very cold & very dark uneven snow covered C-130J Landing Fields 1 & 2, Major McCarthy’s Army engineers assisted by Captain Maxwell’s Air Force counterparts were with considerable difficulty collecting all the airfield markers & associated equipment three of the Meeson’s John Deere tractor-trailers well as material Marv et.al. used to mark out Helicopter Landing Zone 1, stowing theirs aboard the CH-57 on the zone. With the ENDER mission complete McCarthy ordered his five MPs & twenty-two engineers aboard the Chinook for heloing back to Camp Grafton whilst their Air Force counterparts drove the John Deeres back to their storage crip sheds for cleaning & fueling. Whilst watching from inside Jay & Millie’s warm house as Air Force engineers neatly parked six cleaned up & fueled Ford F-250 pickups on Jay & Millie’s house parking lot next to their two pickups Meeson clan members meantime were bundling up for returning to their homes. Hurrying outside to relive the six Air Force engineers from driving the Meesons piled onboard the pickups & strapped in the engineers needing a lift back to the C-130Js on Landing Zones 3 & 4 1,100 feet north climbing on & sitting down on the uncomfortably cold flatbed of the lead pickup driven by Evans Meeson.

Standing on the Reception Room’s front door porch well bundled up for the cold Jay, Millie, Marv & his wife Kay Louise latter’s staying overnight with Jay & Millie out of concern for their health given there advanced age plus enormous mental stress of having to endure a near half-day military occupation inside their house well as lands adjacent to it looked on & waved goodbye whilst Ev’s F-250 in front of them wheeled left & drove off north off closely followed by the other pickups. Coming up in the dark on Army Corps Of Engineers Major McCarthy’s C-47F Chinook on Helicopter Landing Zone 1 piled yards from it next to the well-traveled but still slushy snow covered asphalt roadway service road connecting Jay’s & Millie’s house to the John Deere tractor-trailer crib sheds 1,300 feet north were the materials Marv et.al. used to mark out the three helicopter landing zones, standing next to them was Major McCarthy he flashlighting Ev to halt short of it. Forthwith getting out & walking over to McCarthy the latter asked which F-250s the Air Force engineers needed to load it on;

“They can put it on Dale’s (his eldest son’s) pickup behind me well as the one my daughter Missie (Melissa Meeson, Evans’ eldest daughter) is driving behind him Major. I’m sorry Marv couldn’t see you off as he’s staying with the folks (i.e. Jay & Millie) tonight, they’d had a hard day. Marv said it was good seeing you again and that you & the engineers have a safe flight back to Camp Grafton tonight.”

Whilst the Air Force engineers were loading on the material used to mark out the helicopter landing zones onto Dale’s & Missie’s F-250s’ flatbeds McCarthy thanked Ev, Marv & rest of the  Meeson clan on behalf of his ENDER detail team members for setting up the helicopter landing zones well as for their hospitality;

“The food, coffee & drinks you’d given us today was incredibly good, can tell you how much ‘my guys’ appreciated it well as letting them warm up in the Reception Room. I don’t know when I’ll be talking again with Marv but do tell him my Chinook pilots appreciated his batoning them in this morning (on Helicopter Landing Zones 1 & 2), did ‘make life easier’ for them doing so!”

Appreciating his comments Ev said his folks were pleased with the respect McCarthy’s personnel showed them & other Meeson family members;

“We’re a ‘military family’ going back generations so always appreciate those serving the flag (of the United States Of America); God Speed on your flight back to Camp Grafton Major!”

Shaking Ev’s hand McCarthy turned around & retreated to his Chinook then powering it up for takeoff Ev meantime climbing back onboard his pickup & driving off for Captain Maxwell’s C-130J’s hundreds of yards north. Walking onboard the CH-47F via the aft Cargo Ramp, sitting down & strapping in whilst signaling its loadmaster Sergeant Jason Williams to close it & Pilot Army Captain Kenneth Carpenter to takeoff, McCarthy then radio signaled Maxwell that the ENDER detail Command Helicopter was departing the Meeson farms. Acknowledging the notification Maxwell wished him & his personnel a safe flight back to Camp Grafton, powering up yet more at 7:13 p.m. Carpenter lifted the Chinook off forthwith turning left & north whilst rapidly gaining altitude minutes later disappearing into a beautifully cloudless nighttime sky in so doing becoming the fifth aircraft to depart the Meesons farms.

Meanwhile slowing motoring north in cold dark skies over the now well-travelled but still slushy snow covered asphalt roadway towards POSOC Captain Maxwell’s C-130J lights from it well as from inside the John Deere tractor & trailer storage cribs farther on pointing the way, the Meeson clan’s caravan of F-250 pickups in four-wheel drive mode since leaving Jay & Millie’s house hit several pockets of slippery asphalt forcing them to reduce speed, coming up on Maxwell’s “Super Herc” Ev flipped the pickup’s headlights to high beams signaling him that the caravan were approaching, halting the caravan across from his aircraft Ev got out of it to greet Maxwell he making his way on foot to him from the Cargo Door Hatch.  A short stocky man in his mid-50s Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell, a decorated Afghan War combat veteran flying Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II “Warthogs”, was Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A’s POSOC on his first and possibly only operational deployment as he’d put in for retirement later in the year, hand signaling “his” Air Force engineers to get off Ev’s F-250 flatbed & line up behind him they forthwith doing so Maxwell told Ev that all the Meeson’s John Deere tractors & trailers have been cleaned up & fueled for his inspection by “his” engineers in the storage cribs they minutes ago having hoofed it from there back to “his” aircraft, thanking him for doing so Ev wished him the best in his retirement well as having a safe flight back to Mountain Home whilst shaking his hand. Returning & getting in his F-250 whilst Maxwell & “his” Air Force engineers retreated into “his” “Super Herc” via the Cargo Door Hatch Ev powered it up & drove off followed by the Meeson clan’s pickups to the storage cribs several yards up the roadway.

Arriving at the sheds Ev, his wife Julie Deanne & oldest son Dale carefully looked over the John Deere tractors & trailers whilst chatting amongst themselves in freezing cold air how thorough Maxwell’s engineers were in cleaning them off, switching off the shed lights they then drew the doors closed & locked them afterwards retreating into their warm F-250s just as Maxwell’s & the “Super Herc” transporting “his” medical personnel & gear (i.e. materials, equipment & tools) were powering up for takeoff, not wanting to hang around seeing them off well as anxious to get home Ev leading the Meeson clan caravan of F-250s one-by-one u-turned in front of the sheds south to a snowed-covered asphalt access road at their south ends perpendicular to 355th Avenue. Crossing the railroad spur parallel to it at 7:31 p.m. just as Maxwell’s C-130J piloted by Air Force Captain Robert Toland was lifting off from Landing Zone 3 in pitch black darkness, traveling some yards further west Ev turned right onto the just as snow covered 355th Avenue closely followed by the Meeson clan’s pickups the C-130J transporting Maxwell’s medical personnel piloted by Air Force Captain Jonatan Orbach lifting off at 7:33 p.m.

Motoring north up snow covered 355th Avenue the caravan of F-250s slowed to avoid snow drifts, coming up on US Highway 14 those Meesons sitting on right sides of the pickups looked southeast at the “Super Hercs” blinking white navigation lights they having formed up soon after takeoff arching southwest & gaining altitude for the cold 2 hour 15 minute trip to Mountain View AFB much of it in foul nighttime winter weather. Sitting next to Ev In the lead pickup his wife Julie speaking with a concerned voice wished them well on their journey back;

“It's going to be really nasty night for them flying to Idaho! Major Morant was lucky to get off when she did. Naomi (Acheampong) also has a rough ride back to Washington DC tonight, hope she can get some rest in whatever airplane she’s flying in!”

Agreeing with her Ev added that there also was bad weather coming in over Camp Grafton he as well hoping Major McCarthy’s personnel would have a safe flight back there;

“There’s nothing worse than traveling in bad weather, fortunately we’re going home early enough to avoid tonight’s blizzard, be hell if another ‘whatever’ (paranormal object) showed up on the folk’s property tomorrow morning, far as I’m concerned the damn loco was more than one too many!”

Epilogue

Helicoptering back to Camp Grafton North Dakota evening of February 8, 2023 in clear but freezing cold nighttime air ENDER detail Commander Army Corps Of Engineers Major Kevin McCarthy’s two Boeing CH-47F Chinooks ‘heloing” two hours & eight minutes apart encountered no inflight issues other than those on board being very cold & very tired particularly McCarthy’s twenty-two engineers who’d “worked their tails off” more than any other military personnel whilst on the Meeson farms at times in subzero air. Both Chinooks arriving safely all aboard happily returned to their barracks forthwith shedding their bulky hooded disposable hazmat jumpsuits & winter clothing & shoes for hot showers, clean fatigues, warm shoes & specially prepared chow for them at the camp’s mess before turning in for the night.

The same “friendly skies” flying couldn’t be said for HARVEY Command Major June Harriet Morant’s Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules transports on way to Air & Ground Paranormal Objects Management Center code named Site 29-A slamming into two fast moving “Artic Mini-Bomb” low front cyclones sprint-spinning directly due east across northern & mid-Idaho, Montana & Wyoming at Mountain Home AFB Idaho. Flying at 25,000-plus feet in violently turbulent freezing cold air, landing 45 minutes later than planned Morant’s two “Super Hercs” beelined it to Site 29-A Hangar 1 at the far southwest of the airbase, the only one then fully equipped & staffed to accommodate the 2-2-2T locomotive, to off load it, doing so by 9:35 p.m. Mountain Time she & HARVEY personnel, including her four Pentagon Intelligence Officers, retreated to the airbase officer’s quarters & barracks for well-deserved hot showers, clean fatigues, warm shoes & specially prepared chow before sacking-in.

Not at all able to dodge the Artic Mini-Bombs the Meeson Farms Paranormal Object Site Operations Commander Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell’s “Super Hercs” diverted to Hill Air Force Base Utah laying there overnight & returning to Site 29-A late afternoon the February 9th after the mini-bombs had passed. Barely making it in time by helicopter to Ellsworth AFB Western South Dakota before they’d hit after showing, changing fatigues & dining at the base’s office quarters Pentagon Office Of Paranormal Management Commander Colonel Naomi Deladem Acheampong flew back overnight to Joint Base Andrews Maryland aboard an C-37A Gulfstream V sleeping peacefully & undisturbed by the aircraft’s crew.  Soon after Colonel Acheampong departed for the Meeson farms by helicopter earlier in the day Captain Marie Alvarez-Masto piloting the Northrop Grumman T-38C Talon flying her in from Joint Base Andrews flew it to Luke Air Force Base Arizona for pilot training purposes she able to avoid the Artic Mini-Bomb altogether but not before experiencing port engine trouble 150 miles out, flying on & landing safety landing minutes later she then retreated to officer’s quarters for an overnight layover till flying another VIP aircraft to Travis AFB California the next day.

Returning to their homes & farm chores early evening February 8th Evans Meeson, his family well as his brother Marvin’s got them done in time before the Meeson farms were hit with another six inches of blowing snow from the Artic Mini-Bombs atop the four laid on overnight the 7th & 8th. Covering all trace of the previous day’s military occupation adjacent & north of Jason (“Jay) Ludwig Meeson & his wife Mildred (“Millie”) didn’t venture outside till after it passed later in the afternoon. Staying with his parents overnight Marvin & his wife Kay Louise kept close watch over Jay & Millie deeply concerned the quadruple stresses of the sudden paranormal appearance of the 2-2-2T locomotive outside their bedroom & video recording it, hours-long military occupation on their farm to remove it, Top Secret debriefing about it taking place within their house, being sworn to lifetime secrecy by the US Government about everything concerning it, was way beyond too much for them to handle physically never mind emotionally but had to they must at least for the foreseeable future.

The Meeson Farms Anachronism’s low-key documented appearance as opposed to the epic & very much pubic Mefford Anachronisms’ undocumented appearances was Mankind’s first evaluable paranormal object appearance based on very well recorded digital videos from two angles which included numerous close-ups of visual & audio activity. Far more valuable than the object itself (i.e. locomotive) the videos facilitated scientific inquiry as to how it was created but not why well as to what ends all this completely cloaked in US Government Top Secrecy despite months of insanely intense accusations by US Senate & Congressional members that the President Of The United States & members of his administration were engaged in the greatest military intelligence coverup in human history putting him at severe risk of an House Of Representatives Impeachment & Senate Trial he’d likely not survive despite his political party having a numerical advantage of the latter body to thwart his removal of office.

Facing an absolute “no win situation” by continuing to not confirm or deny the “not of this earth” nature of the paranormal objects at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time Saturday, February 12, 2023 the President issued a written Proclamation Of Fact Confirming The Existence Of Four Paranormally Appearing Objects itemizing them as the three Mefford airplanes and 2-2-2T locomotive, the latter retrieved from an “undisclosed location”, followed by legal verbiage placing them under indefinite US Government custody per the November 13, 2022 Presidential Incident-Specific National Emergency & “technical amendments” it minutes later forwarded to the Office Of The Federal Register for publication. For whatever reasons the President only authorized a written press statement of the full proclamation through The White House Office Of The Press Secretary she in so doing causing an heretofore unprecedented world-wide traditional press & social media backlash of the President’s alleged lack of transparency calculated or otherwise regarding the paranormal object’s origins well as where they physically were generating overnight renewed calls for his immediate impeachment & trial by several members of his own political party.

Meantime to this presidential political transparency disaster of epic proportions there also were tremendous security problems the US military had in keeping the paranormal objects out of anybody’s view. Well known to those having Internet access caring to look them up The Medford Anachronisms still at Lemoore NAS Site 29-B had long since become cult objects of far greater interest than any alleged extraterrestrial objects in hiding at Homey Airport, Nevada (Area 51) & Wright-Patterson AFB. Of intense interest by governments around the world as well the People’s Republic Of China in particular sparing no expense gathering as much “intel” possible on the Mefford airplanes though they totally unaware of the 2-2-2T locomotive it now at Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A under the strictest possible security. How long it could be kept out of view partially depended on the Meeson clan’s earnest commitments to the US Government through OPOM Pentagon Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong not to discuss anything about it outside of the clan their efforts in doing so well as the severe psychological tolls placed upon them whilst doing so well outside the scope of this novel.

The Grapevine & Ridge Route Anachronisms
« Reply #38 on: January 22, 2023, 07:24:56 AM »
2015 Bakersfield.com Map Of The Grapevine & Ridge Route

The Grapevine & Ridge Route Anachronisms

Pedro Fages (1734–1794) was a Spanish soldier, explorer, first Lieutenant Governor of the Californias under Gaspar de Portolá y Rovira (January 1, 1716 – October 10, 1786) well as its fifth Governor. Departing  San Diego, California in July 1769 Portolá, Fages, Franciscan missionary Juan Crespí (March 1, 1721 – January 1, 1782) et.al. explored the California coast up to present day Pacifica, California. In November 1770 Fages departed newly founded Monterey, California to explore the southern San Francisco Bay Area in so doing becoming the first European expeditionary leader to see the Golden Gate bay passage from the east. Returning to San Diego in 1772 Fages & Father Crespí set out for newly founded San Luis Obispo, California tracing the route of modern day Interstate 15 through Cajón Pass into the Mojave Desert & Antelope Valley, passing Lake Hughes tracing a line canyons along modern day Pine Canyon, Lancaster & Gorman Post Roads, through Tejón Pass & winding canyons making up modern day Interstate 5 to Lebec, California & Fort Tejon, latter established in 1854 by the US Army, into the Cañada de los Uvas (lit. Canyon Of The Grapes), the Grapevine, at the southernmost base of the Tehachapi Mountains.

Renowned for spectacular clear weather views of the lower San Joaquin Valley from mountain slopes either side of Interstate 5 well as from the northbound freeway lanes the Grapevine often is mistaken for the long abandoned steep two-lane serpentine roadway up the Tehachapi Mountains from the present day Pacific Pipeline System pumping station off Grapevine Road East making up part of the 1915-1933 Castaic-Tejon Route - The Ridge Route - through traverse mountain ranges connecting the San Joaquin Valley with the Santa Clarita & San Fernando Valleys well as Los Angeles. Opened as an two-lane oil-gravel road in October 1915 it was California’s first trans-mountain road suitable for motorized vehicular traffic united Southern California with the San Joaquin Valley ending the real possibility of California being split into two states, closed in parts for 20-foot concrete paving between 1917 & 1920 it was among the first fully-paved California mountain roads capable of year-round travel though dangerous to drive on any time of the year particularly during winter months when closed by snow drifts.


Sandberg’s Summit Hotel; Late 1920s Postcard, 1960 Largely Intact & 2022 Remnant Photographs

Original Hotel Lebec (c.1916-1921), Hotel Durant Postcard 1922, Lebec Lodge c.1955

Dotted by a number of motor inns at 4,170 feet the most famous on the Ridge Route’s northern end south of the 4,250-foot Liebre Summit (highest point on the road) was Sandberg's Summit Hotel (1914 – March 29, 1961) south of present day California State Route 138, tad more modest south of The Grapevine in Lebec, California was the original Hotel Lebec. Built sometime before 1916 by Bakersfield saloonkeeper Thomas O'Brien on May 21, 1921 the latter was replaced by the Y-shaped 80-room Hotel Durant jointly financed by automobile heir Russell Durant & O'Brien. In October 1922, Foster Curry, former manager of Camp Curry in Yosemite Valley, California, purchased it from Durant he later purchasing the adjacent general store & auto garage from O'Brien, the newly renamed Curry's Lebec Lodge run by Curry & Wallace Curtis, latter formerly running the Curtis Publishing Company who’s published The Saturday Evening Post.

Changing ownership throughout the 1920s & 1930s the hotel hosted lavish parties for the Hollywood rich & famous circumventing Prohibition in laxly policed Kern County, California, renamed Hotel Lebec in December 1924 it also was a center of prostitution & illegal gambling. In decline since WWII especially after construction of the nearby US 99 expressway in 1947 the following year it was sold to Harry Burk Jr., Frank C. & Barbara J. Cotter leasing the hotel from him in in 1953. During Burk’s ownership the hotel was a major venue of illegal casino gambling operations within Kern County allegedly run by him, Howard Mooney & Max Travis of Long Beach, California, latter two engaged in illegal Los Angeles County gambling operations. On October 2, 1953 five California Department Of Justice (Cal DOJ) undercover agents raided the casino upstairs of the main building but were unable to establish the casino equipment was being used by those present, returning with search warrants all of it had mysteriously disappeared, no arrests being made of anyone who’d been present.

In July 1956 the Cotters sued Los Angeles County for $53,400 in damages claiming the hotel had decreased in value due to Burk's gambling operation further claiming he’d told then California Attorney General Edmund G. “Pat” Brown & Kern County Sheriff Tom Kelly had sanctioned gambling in the hotel well as receiving a portion of the revenue, flatly denying their allegations Brown pointed to the 1953 raid as evidence the state had not sanctioned it. Incriminating for Burk was that the raid led by Cal DOJ Deputy Director Harold G. Robinson In response to the Cotter’s suit stated that five days before they’d signed their lease with Burk Cal DOJ had sent him a letter stating they’d heard presumably from confidential sources he was proposing “…to violate the (California) penal code…” at the hotel and based on it was convicted in court of passing Kelly’s undersheriff a $600 bribe for “looking the other way” in 1954.

Following Burk’s 1953 gambling debacle Hotel Lebec was renamed Lebec Lodge presumably to erase public memory of its checkered past went into a decline selling it in 1955 to Al Pearlman of Columbus, Ohio for $300,000. Attempts to revive it by bringing in big name bands in the 1950s failed completion of Interstate 5 on the 1947 expressway right of way between 1963 & 1966 further contributing to its demise its then current owners the Tejon Ranch Company closing its doors in March 1969, condemned by the Kern County Health Department it was burned to the ground by ranch company employees on April 27, 1971.

Famous as the Ridge Route itself is the 6-1/2 mile Grapevine Canyon from Fort Tejon south of Lebec to present day Grapevine, California, latter hugging both sides of Interstate 5 as shown in the Google Maps aerial immediately above. Constructed in stages during the latter 1960s it direct roadside business predecessor also called Grapevine was 4,752 feet farther south on today’s Grapevine East Road - the original 1915-1933 roadway - hidden amongst trees & other structures as seen in the early-mid 1920s panorama photograph shown at top. Clearly seen in the late 1920s & accompanying 2020s razed landscape photographs below it c.1934 it was abandoned & gradually razed, succeeded by the Grapevine Ridge Service Station & Restaurant shown above the Google Maps aerial the author remembered it when operational in the early 1950s, closed c.1964 it was razed sans the Union 76 sign, enduring into the 1970s albeit in decrepit condition sometime in the early 1980s the pylon sans the sign was dismantled.

With locations & historical backgrounds established the spatially grandest & most numerous of the paranormal object appearances since the Mefford Field Anachronisms were set to take place on the Grapevine & Ridge Route ending centuries of speculation of there not only being sentient extraterrestrial life but that existing at the subatomic level, attempts by the US Government et.al. to spirit them away from public view pointless, long understood laws of physics called into question, fundamental spiritual & ethical beliefs & practices severely challenged. Mass paranoia & insanity easily could self-destruct humanity knowing of it, ASAP staving it off was paramount, HOW to do so left to a fearlessly brave & imaginative handful amongst them 51 year old US Pentagon Office Of Paranormal Object Management Commander Colonel Naomi Deladem Acheampong willing to risk her military career - and life - in doing so.

AGPOM Commander Brigadier General Lothar Aelbehrt Knochenmus PhD
« Reply #39 on: January 23, 2023, 02:25:20 PM »
As mentioned in The Meeson Farms Anachronism, during US Government FY 2022-2023 no later than Friday, September 1, 2023 was the Air & Ground Paranormal Objects Management Center ("AGPOM") at Mountain Home AFB in Idaho code named Site 29-A under Space, Air Force & Army joint command to be ready to receive The Mefford Field Anachronisms well as accommodate other paranormally appearing aircraft, terrestrial vehicular objects & structures. Months would pass till any then undergoing exhaustive forensic examinations & analysis at Lemoore Naval Air Station (NAS) Site 29-B in California would be relocated the 2-2-2T locomotive appearing on the Meeson farms on February 8, 2023 hurriedly transported there & ensconced in a recently erected compound for forensic examinations & analysis.

Commanding Site 29-A was 57 year old Long Beach, California-born Air Force Brigadier General Lothar Aelbehrt Knochenmus PhD, nicknamed “Eddie” by his US Air Force Academy classmates passing for Eddie Munster of the US 1964-66 The Munsters TV comedy series played by actor Butch Patrick (Patrick Alan Lilley b.1953) he’d looked like a werewolf but graduated 5th in his class excelling at mathematics, physics, management & operational research. A natural born manager he quickly rose in rank & responsibility within the Air Force Material Command where his father Major Edmond Aelbehrt Knochenmus had served in the Air Material Command during the Vietnam War, gaining US Pentagon command attention in the early 2000s as a brilliant though very low key California Institute Of Technology (Caltec) Masters & PhD graduate in Experimental Elementary Particle Physics, Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics, Condensed-Matter Physics, Quantum Optics & Information the Air Force had paid for his schooling there. Constantly having to be on guard not letting his fellow students & professors know he’d held Top Secret military security clearances in 2010 Caltec had offered him an professorship in Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics but declined it in favor of pursuing his military career hoping to take it up later.

A devout Catholic General Knochenmus was deep into Christian mysticism spurring him into the physical sciences, secretly believing “Heaven” wasn’t cosmological, transcendent nor supernatural but physically real perhaps at the sub-atomic level he’d despaired over never being able to prove it so but thanks to the Mefford Field Anachronisms he’d leaped at the chance of commanding AGPOM willing to take an immediate demotion to Colonel to do so hoping they’d play a part of proving it so. Hardball lobbing “The Pentagon Brass” for it he was about to be passed over by 54 year old Army Corps Of Engineers Colonel Mason Souta Eguchi PhD Mechanical Engineering Carnegie Mellon University. Close friends for decades “Souta” instinctively knew Eddie was better qualified he forthwith requesting not to be appointed to the command, agreeing with his logic that Eddie better than in the US Military understood sub-atomic physics on assumption the Mefford Field Anachronisms et.al had sub-atomic origins “The Pentagon Brass” (i.e. Joint Chiefs Of Staff with Whitehouse approval) on Wednesday December 14, 2022 appointed temporary but senior in command rank Colonel Knochenmus AGPOM Commander Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A his assistant Air Force Engineer Major June Harriet Morant & hers Air Force Captain Rodney Maxwell. Together with Colonel Acheampong Knochenmus would form the core of an investigative team to unravel the anachronism’s origins over time others joining in as well, theirs to become the most consequential sleuthing enterprise in human history but not without personal cost to all those involved.

“Left Over Business” Dwelt With Before The Next Anachronisms Torrent
« Reply #40 on: January 25, 2023, 12:54:12 AM »
Ensconced within Site 29-B for months undergoing every conceivable forensic examination analysis of the “Mefford airplanes” came up with nothing other than being perfectly accoutremented factory specimens or in the case of the WWII German Luftwaffe Heinkel 177 A-5 bomber a war-damaged wreck. Not allowed forensic examinations were the bomber’s deceased crewmen Unterfeldwebel Joachim Klaus-Martin who’d died in the Adventist Health Tulare California Hospital on November 13, 2022, Unterfedwebel Tabbart Moritz Imdieke dead on the airfield ground yards from Klaus-Martin,  Stabsfeldwebel Reamonn Tahbert Ottinger dead behind the bombsight inside the aircraft’s nose crew cabin “greenhouse” necessitating an extraordinarily discreet humanitarian joint cooperation effort between US & Bundesrepublik scrupulously following established joint NATO-US Armed Forces- Bundeswehr deceased military corpse identification & repatriation protocols for repatriating their bodies.

By November 13, 2022 week’s end their bodies had been repatriated to Germany where under great secrecy they were autopsied by select Bundeswehr & civilian doctors, clothing & artifacts examined by Militärischer Abschirmdienst VI (Protection Of Secrets, Personnel & Material) & V (Technology), Bundesarchiv archivists et.at., not allowed examination were non-personal crewmen artifacts & documents found inside the Heinkel’s nose crew cabin the US military keeping them under lock & key in the Site 29-B Hangar B Forensics Annex between Hangars A (McDonnell Phantom II) & B, digital photographs & videos of them furnished to Militärischer Abschirmdienst (Military Counterintelligence Service) et.al. Bundeswehr personnel instead. All positively identified though their Erkennungsmarken (“Dog Tags”), autopsies & surviving Bundesarchiv et.al. documentation they along with two missing presumed dead crewmen: Pilot Hauptmann Lütold Moritz Trinkenschuh, Tail Gunner Unterfeldwebel Detlef Aadne Cronister, were part of a highly secret & historically undocumented overnight January 20, 1944 Kampfgeschwader 200 “special ops” bombing mission by three Heinkel 177s hours prior to Unternehmen Steinbock (Operation Steinblock January 21 – May 20, 1944) to take out the UK Cabinet War Rooms underneath the Treasury Building off King Charles Street, London.

Only recently confirmed by Wehrmacht Abwehr I-K (Foreign Intelligence-Computer/Cryptanalysis Operations) that UK Prime Minister Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was scheduled to be in all aircraft were “confirmed” shot down over the English Channel by two hurriedly flown out of Yorkshire RAF No.85 Squadron de Havilland 98 Mosquito NF.Mk XVIII night fighters fitted with AI.X (US Army SCR-720) 3.3 GHz S-band radar sets though their remains never were found. Not reported in No.85’s pilot log books nor official history were extremely bright & colorful lights radiating from one of them whilst in a steep dive by one of the Mosquito pilots, presumably the moment when it “dematerialized”, too busy tracking the other Griefs (Griffons, the Heinkels 177’s official nickname) he’d forgot mentioning the anomaly in his flight log.

Even before the airmen’s bodies were repatriated the German public through Internet social media & conventional news reporting were well aware of a Heinkel 177 being amongst the Mefford airplanes, knowing this German government could not deny the possibility of their being airmen bodies the question was how to “prepare the public” over any such discoveries without generating national security threatening conspiracy theories or worse, mass hysteria. In November 2022 the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic was in full force, effective treatments & vaccines latter still in the future were garnering lots of news reporting then, seeking to “bury the news” of the airmen’s existence the Presse und Informationsamt des Bundesministeriums der Verteidigung (Federal Ministry of Defense Press & Information Office a.k.a. BMVg) under direct orders from the Bundeskanzler der Bundesrepublik Deutschland - the German Chancellor - initially was to ignore all inquiries regarding the Mefford Field Heinkel aircraft, needless to say the strategy didn’t work.

Very soon after the airmen’s bodies were secretly repatriated word leaked out first via social media then conventional news reporting amongst the latter Bild-Zeitung they November 27, 2022 onwards railing against the Chancellor for suppressing public discourse regarding their repatriations. After Deutsche Presse-Agentur (German Press Agency) ran a six-part series of revealing articles in December regarding the “secret mechanics” of the repatriations from “…knowledgeable Militärischer Abschirmdienst sources & others…” did “the German Government” and not the Chancellor quietly announce on Christmas Eve 2022 “…that airmen bodies were discovered and repatriated to Germany for forensic examination & return to their families soon as possible”. With this meek acknowledgement howling calls came from opposition Deutsches Bundestag political parties for the Chancellor to resign, point blank refusing to do so he instead “passed the hot potato” to the US President then facing calls of impeachment regarding “hiding” The Mefford Field Anachronisms Germany being an “innocent second party” in this regard, already unpopular with the German public after months of stonewalling over not addressing the matter on March 1, 2023 he’d quietly resigned still not having done so.

Meantime the cremated remains of the airmen were quietly returned to surviving relatives in Germany, the scenes of extremely painful reunions the most gut wrenching was that of Unterfeldwebel Joachim Klaus-Martin of Bamberg Upper Franconia. Surviving WWII were his half-sisters Emilia & Eleanor, 5 & 3 years old in 1944, still living in Bamberg they only had vague memories of him, tearfully receiving his ashes from a Luftwaffe Hauptman they’d wisely not asked questions how’d the German government had come across his body nor in what condition for fear of being hounded by “media people” despite knowing he’d been bodily repatriated months earlier. Told that the government had no intentions of bothering them further the Hauptman said the government would bury them wherever they’d wished with or without a tombstone, forthwith replying they’d wanted his ashes buried in the family plot at the city cemetery with a tombstone inscribed with his January 20, 1944 disappearance date seventy-nine years to the day later on January 20, 2023 they were.

“Waldo”; Sleuthing For Sub-Atomic Life & “Communications” With It

A Complicated “Find Waldo” Story Graphic

Sleuthing for sub-atomic life sentient or no depends on evidence, prior to The Mefford Field & Meeson Farms Anachronisms none was in human the hands for critical scientific forensic evaluation, thanks to Jason & Millie Meeson smartphone video recordings of the 2-2-2T locomotive’s materialization on their South Dakota farm such evaluation could now be systematically conducted, first to do so Colonel Naomi Acheampong whilst viewing highly processed & enhanced digital replays of them through the REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN electronic intelligence hardware & software forensics technology system. Able to sift & meaningfully organize trillions of digital data units through Artificial Intelligence (AI) in microseconds it presented users human-like institutive interpretations of it facilitating in-depth forensic analysis, capable of dynamic real time processing of electromagnetic visual & audio sensory inputs, chemical, sub-atomic et.al. from a wide range of detection devices it eerily was akin to Star Trek AI computer systems capable of performing complex keyed-in & voice-directed information queries.

Decades ahead of anything mankind has created to date in the way of information technology, dangerous in the wrong hands as well, for all intents the REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN system was treated as a nuclear weapon in that it could not to be operated by anyone alone, always kept under lock & key when not. Not assigned an umbrella designation following the Messon Farms 2-2-2T locomotive appearance users called it “Waldo” after the Where’s Waldo/Wally? UK series of children's puzzle books of him hidden amongst crowds of people & things keying in queries, “Wally” when voice-directed followed by AI interpreted query instructions. Absolutely central to sleuthing for sub-atomic life Waldo would be the sole means of “communications” with it as well, wasn’t long till “he’d” be sorely needed to stave off mass hysteria & potential civil war in the U. S. of A.!

P.O. Storage Pointless; Sub-Atomic Life A Diplomatic Communications Enterprise
« Reply #42 on: January 27, 2023, 09:12:38 AM »
Undated Niday Picture Library Print Of The 19th Century US Military Diplomatic Mission To Japan

Returning to her in her office in Pentagon Building Section BH1355 morning of February 10, 2023 two days after airlifting the Meeson Farms 2-2-2T locomotive to Mountain Home AFB Site 29-A, OPOM Commander Colonel Naomi Acheampong her mind still reeling from the blazingly fast-paced intensity of the operation associated with airlifting it on February 8th and in particular after viewing the Meeson’s video recordings came away from the “organized chaos” of the day firmly believing it was utterly impossible for the US Government, all others on Earth for that matter, to “defend” against any potential threat to humanity posed by sub-atomic life. The question she had sitting alone in her businesslike & austere by choice Pentagon office reviewing a good sized stack of after-action reports forwarded to her overnight by long-time friend & Air Force Academy academic colleague Site 29-A Commander Colonel Lothar Knochenmus was whether sub-atomic life was “hostile” to the atomic in materializing The Mefford Field & Meeson Farms Anachronisms or benign albeit spectacular & highly disturbing demonstrations of their ability to bring forth atomic material living or no anywhere, anytime.

Whilst viewing the Meeson’s smartphone video recordings of the locomotive’s materialization in Jason Meeson’s South Dakota farmhouse study Colonel Acheampong had already accepted it wasn’t miraculous but wondering out loud to the Jason, Mildred & Marvin Meeson, REXALL-LUCERNE-WARREN a.k.a. Waldo Team Leader Space Force Intelligence Captain Marcy Dougan et.al. military personnel present whether the sub-atomic life “assembling” it was sentient. Slogging through the “after-actions” morning of the 10th she became convinced “warehousing” paranormal appearing objects was pointless, forensic examination & analysis of them yes, keeping them forever away from public view fearing they’d become “cult objects of worship” or far, far worse, physical examples of the US Government being totally helpless in protecting its citizens from “foreign invasion” no & emphatically so. For the first time ever in her military career she’d questioned whether the Oath Of Allegiance she’d taken at the US Air Force Academy:

“I, Naomi Deladem Acheampong having been appointed an officer in the Air Force of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of Second Lieutenant do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God."

also meant defending against potentially hostile sub-atomic life knowing it was absolutely impossible to do so, logically she had to defend the United States Of America but extension to it as a commissioned military officer she also had diplomatic responsibility to interact & negotiate truces with hostile parties in so defending. Plenty of historical examples in US Military History abound of commissioned officers brokering truces & peace deals amongst the famous or nigh notorious US Naval Captain James Glynn & Commodore Matthew C. Perry forcing the Tokugawa Shogunate to end Japan’s 250 year-old self-imposed national seclusion in 1848-54 the USA in this case “asking” sub-atomic life to cease effectuating any more paranormal object appearances out of humanitarian concern not only for US citizens but for all mankind to stave off global mass hysteria, societal chaos & civil wars. The only way to establish diplomatic communications with such life she’d correctly reasoned were the Meeson’s video recordings, minute-analyzing them could yield clues how to, who she’d needed now were allies & analysists to do so starting with Colonel Knochenmus who already was primed to join her in the enterprise.
