    Interesting that the "NS 6531 SD60 has been rebuilt to NS 6963 SD60E". Could the "E" stand for "Electric"? Inquiring minds want to know. We will soon enough.

    Great story Dance. I too have sold waaaay too early a few times. I try not to look back when I make a profit.

    A good friend I introduced to Axion recently was thinking of selling some @ .20 and I convinced him to wait. I think there is a very minute chance that we don't keep going from here.

    Dance, that is hilarious. And actually, RA is thinking along the same lines as I. I do believe that we can see $10+ within a few years. Now I may have to time the top of the hype cycle correctly, but I do believe that I will sell some shares at that price or greater. I'll probably sell some before as well, but long-term, ten bucks, IMO.

    When we got under .105 today I had my finger on 50-100K but decided to wait a bit. Then, taking advantage of one of the benefits of "working from home", I took a little nap at 1530 hours. What a surprise when I woke up.

    Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings. I do think people are thinking "I better get on before the train gets any further away".

    Now I'm already dreaming how long to wait before getting rid of my old $2.10 shares.

    Yes, you are correct. I just imagine the NS999 project team saying "yes, the PbC is perfect for us, it does everything we need and more, but that Axion CEO is just doesn't have enough charisma. We better pass and use something else".

    Jeez.

  • Is the sun rising on Daybreak Oil and Gas? [View instapost]
    News today of the production at H-4 and H-5 wells. Over 250 BOPD from each, which means another 60+ for us from each. Plus, it appears that the gas coming from the wells is more than initially thought. That's an added bonus. Four of the first 5 wells are producing over 250 BOPD. The only one we don't know about yet is the H-2. Drilling will start on the first 4 of 20 planned wells for this coming year. Just these first 5 KY wells give us over 500% increase in production over last year. It's looking to be a very good year for Daybreak.

    Press release here;

    Update on Inter-modal railyard in Charlotte;

    Taxied over where all the tracks go under the runway the other day and then did some follow-up on some leads. Found a guy who is a big train buff and knows all about the yard. He knows the switchers that are there and what they are. I will be providing him details of the 999 and he said he would let me know if it ever showed up. However, as iindelco alluded to, it is entirely possible that there could be another one somewhere but this guy told me the switchers that are there are definitely not battery-powered. He did say the ones there are all freshly-painted. With the press the yard has been getting there I guess they didn't want any old, dirty ones showing up on local TV.

    He also told me all about the crescent line. He knows all about it since it goes through Charlotte. I told him NSC plans to use electric locos on that line and he agreed it would be a good line for it since there are no hills to speak of.

    None of this means anything but if a quiet, non-smoke-belching loco shows up there, I may be able to find out.

    LOL, looks like the face I make when trying to figure out how to spend my Axion millions. After sales of a meaningful magnitude, of course.

    I'd like to thank my mom first, then my 2nd grade teacher.

    Not disappointing to me at all. I consider a couple things;
    This market is going to be HUGE. I'll settle for a piece of it.

    Of course since this is lithium, it needs a cooling system as stated. What happens when that cooling system fails for any reason, and think about the maintainence of that system. All adds to the total cost of ownership.
    And as John stated so well a couple years ago in a SA article, "cheap beats cool in the energy storage sector"

    We'll be just fine

    If the buying continues today, they may be out by EOD, lol.

    I have seen 10, 100K+ orders today, and quite a few 50K+. Can't read anything into that but at least somebody is optimistic today.

    @user - We don't know anything about you yet, but you sure seem to know your battery chemistry. I appreciate your insight. Confirms just how tough it is to reach the lofty goals that are being thrown around by folks who don't know any better, and also shows that at least for the foreseeable future, a solution to many battery needs already exists in our PbC.

    Ack! Just realized I used breaks instead of brakes. Incorrect usage of words drives me nuts.

    I had missed the mention of the new video, John, but I just watched and it's very interesting. I don't pretend to understand the significance of the 796 volts, but the fact that the batteries were pretty much at full charge after a 2-hour trip speaks volumes, IMO.


    On the on-ramp scene where the tractor slows without using breaks, my first thought is that this setup should also save fleets money in brake overhauls, which I am sure is costly on big trucks.

    Also noticed the auto tranny right off since there was no gear changing going on. The cab seemed to be very quiet which I would also consider a plus if I was a driver.

    Very cool stuff. For many reasons I hope you sell a million of them.

  • AIG beats, boosts dividend and buyback [View news story]
    Yep, AIG is one of my largest holdings. Bought @ $34 when they started repaying Uncle Sam. Wish I could go back and load up the truck at that price.
