The Artistry Studio & Mississippi Mayhem: Art, Trains and Online Carts - S05E01

American Bandito episode image

In this season of the podcast, I decided to try and start my own business. It's going to be a multimedia podcast studio and retail space.

And I'm doing it in an old 1930's train car!

One of the things I need to figure out is what I'm going to sell and what online shopping cart I want to use. So I meet with two artists here in Madison, WI to talk about the different cart options out there and ask why they are in the process of leaving Etsy?

My Train Wheels Moved? | From the Train 190913

I was able to actually get some information on what was happening with the Train today.

Alright, so I've said in the comic that it's fully tilted up and it is. And I noticed today if you look over at the back that's where the wheels used to be. So I'm like... I stop by today and I'm talking to the guy and I'm like, How? What happened? How is... they're in the middle now?
I guess they can slide the wheels on it? So I guess what they can do is they tilted it up on pistons and they've got... Like a beam? I don't know. They got something propping it up and they were able to slide the wheels over. I didn't know you could do that on a train. So that was kind of interesting.
They're digging under it. And over by the back, they are digging. So they had to take even more track away which is why they had to move the wheels. So now I really can't go in there there's track missing and it's at an incline. So that was interesting.
