    >JP ... I'm still wanting to get a Chevy Volt from the trading profits of AXPW. The race is on.

    >Rick Krementz ... Don't beat yourself up. Mistakes happen and I'm really glad you posted the relevant passages that I went looking for and did not find in the time I had to do it. Thanks.

    >JP ... I guess I should look into getting a 100 share paper stock certificate (suitable for framing) before it gets too expensive. I wonder what it would look like? The only one I have is one from my granddad for AT&T. I wonder how I'd go about that? Call Quercus? Call (Ugh) Fidelity?

    >jrp3 ... Production & Sales say you're wrong, at least for BEV (and Tesla doesn't count).

    >tragicslip ... Truth is Axion's management wouldn't. JP once stated that $14 a share would get his attention and might temp the core investors. Short of that ... I don't remember hearing anything close.

    >bangwhiz ... That TN story is a rather gloomy positive endorsement. Thanks.

    >481086 ... I have always liked the car carry train. My mother hated to fly and always traveled by train if possible and unless she was going to a city centre, she took her car along. The Atlantic Coast Line, the Seaboard Line, the B&O, Pennsy, NY Central and a few others routinely offered this service. AMTrak is the only line passenger line left and only offers this service today south of DC to Florida. I grew up loving this mode of transit and still prefer a train unless I just can't schedule the time.

    I think my daughter would prefer the train and rent a car and I don't know how attache my son and the coming generation are to any particular car.

    >Tim Enright ... I apologize if you think I'm brow beating or negatively piling on your comments. I mean no offense.

    I, too, am a big solar & wind power advocate but am quite aware of the limitations and know neither work at all without battery (preferably, a PowerCube) power. I'm also a Global Warming "believer". I'm not sure I believe it's man-made but do think Man aggravates it and true or not don't believe it's worth the consequences to deny it and be wrong.

    If Rosewater can sell Mini-Cubes to the "Eco-royalty" for whatever reason ... God Bless them. I just have a thing about current EV technology. If the "Royals" want to use those electrons to power the main house, the vacation home or whatever ... got no problem with that. Its their money. If the the topic is EV & the Eco-Bling crowd and is more than "the rich & their toys" (which I, also, have no problem with) but as societal status symbols then it goes straight to macro economics because the whole industry, presently advertised the next ubiquitous form of transportation, is a drain on worldwide economic development & energy markets of all kinds.

    Again, sorry if I offended.

    >481086 ... Now you're showing your age. I've got 2 just entering college kids now that "kinda" want a car but not really. Both have gotten to enjoy public transportation ... IN DALLAS ... and really want e-bikes or Vespas. I was (& am) shocked. I've been doing my own little survey among the under 20 people I know. It's not quite a majority but out of the 50 or so I've talked to 17 or 18 don't want to live in suburbia, in a huge house, live more than 20 minutes away from work (either by transit or walking), want to live where shopping & entertainment are within the same or shorter range ... a city center. Lastly, airplanes are nice for somethings like vacation get-away but ... say ... for a weekend trip to Austin or Houston a majority really wanted to get there quickly by ground ... high speed rail.

    I'm in the midst of seeing if this is actually a trend and it seems people of my kids generation are turning toward a new paradigm for living. My contrarian lifestyle is a coming trend. YEAH!!!

    When I get some good links, I'll put them up. So, take care what you deem a complete waste. Unlike the EV, trains are beginning to make sense again.

    >Tim Enright ... An EV, even with "green" electrons, makes no economic sense in a macro economic sense. It is still a waste of battery power that would be better used to reduce fossil fuel consumption worldwide in a larger number of vehicles. That will not stop those with means from satisfying some need they have & can afford but it will not sustain a commodity industry.

    I know it's a very socialist idea but battery power is best used to stretch another limited resource, oil, as far as possible to keep prices as low as possible and meet demand. Oh well, I'm not a Tesla kind of capitalist.

    >AlbertinBermuda ... I agree with your conspicuous consumption observation but I've often wondered why commenters here spend so much time & passion fretting over .5% of the marketplace as if it mattered so much. Worrying about what 1% of consumers might do could be good for a trade and maybe that's the game, but it's no way to build a new commodity product.

    I'd venture to guess that most also think themselves "green" but it's hard to tell.

    >481086 ... and yet, we still don't have closure (unless I missed it) with his statement from last year about "P.O.'s in-hand". Oh, well.

    >JP ... Compare & contrast a CC like this with the 30 second (maybe a little exaggerated)calls we were entertained with back around 2007-08. They've come a long way and TG has turned into a regular chatterbox.

    >f-kru ... The issues with NS, I'd venture to guess, are all inside politics. There is more than likely a bias against "All-Electric", tugs between Yard & OTR service and ideas how better to spend the budget. As long as it is moving forward in any manner, things are fine. Don't be a bit surprised if R.J. Corman or NRE are among, if not, the first real customers for Axion.
