My train car almost fell into a hole | From the train 190810



The other day I was writing a comic about the fact that our train almost fell into a hole.

What happened?

So here's something you don't expect, they were digging a hole outside for this building next door I don't know if they're putting in a basement or what? But they dug right up to our train.

It turns out that the land here is more sand than it is dirt. They took away the train tracks to do this and with as close as they dug it - they were afraid suddenly that basically our train was gonna fall into the hole.

The solution we were given?

They were gonna tilt one end of the train up and try and roll it forward. Our power has been out for a month because we have already been waiting for them to move the train forward like a foot or so next to the other car. So now because this hole was becoming a problem, he told us was going to move it right away.

They normally move the train with some sort of push mechanism that makes it pretty easy. But since they don't have the train tracks on the side the hole is on anymore they couldn't do it that way.

But...

The way it is now, they tried to prop it up so that it wouldn't fall. So now the weight in the back of the place is on these props. They still need to push it forward but they don't know how they're gonna get it to work. Meaning they said they were gonna move it and then they never did. We had breakable things in there and we made a mad rush to put them all in my car and they never ended up moving it, they just left it on the props.

I will say this is probably something most people don't have to deal with when they're building a new studio, worrying it might fall in a hole. It is kind of freaky looking out the back at it. Like, that hole is right there and every time I walk over here I feel like... Should I be bouncing? Probably not.

What next?

I'm still waiting to get power in here, which now because of this hole outside, is going to take a couple more weeks than I had planned.

I was going to start on the new flooring but will have to wait because without power it's not climate-controlled. I just never know what's gonna happen every day I show up here.

This episode is gonna be Halloween themed.

Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas Desk Lamp It's got itself an alarm clock with digital display because... technology. I don't know why but it has a mouth that opens and closes for no reason on the head. And the light switch is a little bat that you move back and forth. This item was made by Touchstone Pictures, at least that's what it says on the bottom.

You can get tons and tons and tons of Nightmare Before Christmas stuff like on everything and some of the over saturation is due to the fact that the rights - and this may come as no surprise…

Cement.

Super happy to see that the hole under the train car is closer to being done.

Chewie.

After the 7 foot Chewbacca we saw team rocket from Pokemon and some pirates which seemed lame in comparison.
