    Error in Ddogs right there.
    yup.... I did not catch that.

    I spent too much time on it last night.... I found 4 or five ways to arrange it and not dispute the facts, so I am missing something important........

    ok... how about this one?

    NAME...............................FORGOT......... ............EXTRA
    Barbara mcneal................suntan lotion...............beach towel
    Cindy Sparks...................beach bag..................floppy hat
    Katy Larsen....................beach towel.................sunglasses
    Sally fuchi......................sunglasses............. ......suntan lotion
    Pamela drumlin................floppy hat...................beach bag

    Hmmm... answer differs from Ddog.
    Code:
    NAME                             FORGOT                         EXTRA
    Barbara Sparks                 Beach Towel                    Flop Hat   
    Katy Larsen                    Flop Hat                       Sun Glasses
    Cindy Drumlin                  Beach Bag                      Beach Bag
    Sally Fuchi                    Sun Glasses                    Sun Lotion
    Pamela Mcneal                  Sun Lotion                     Beach Towel
    The Cindy Drumlin having to forget her bag, but bring an extra one makes me thing I errored...

    edit:
    6. The five women were
    a.Ms. McNeal
    b.the woman who packed extra suntan lotion
    c.the woman who forgot her beach towel
    d.Cindy
    e.and the woman who forgot her floppy hat.

    3. Katy Larsen didnít pack an extra floppy hat. Ms. Fuchi didnít forget her beach towel.

    4. The woman who forgot her suntan lotion packed an extra beach towel.

    5. Sally, whose last name wasnít McNeal, forgot her sunglasses. Pamela didnít forget her beach towel.

    6. The five women were Ms. McNeal, the woman who packed extra suntan lotion, the woman who forgot her beach towel, Cindy, and the woman who forgot her floppy hat.

    NAME...............................FORGOT......... ............EXTRA

    Hi! It's Bamboo, borrowing Axis' profile, to bring you a new puzzle. I love Bamboo. Axis would never say that, so you know it has to be me! Ignore the illogical implications, you don't have time for that now, you need to help these poor ladies find their stuff!


    Pamela and four of her friends rented a beach house for a long Girls Only weekend. In the furor of packing, each woman neglected to pack something and yet also ended up packing an extra item. By some happy coincidence, they discovered that the extra items that were packed covered all of the forgotten items. So with some mixing and matching, everyone had what they needed to spend a relaxing weekend enjoying the fine weather, beautiful setting, and the company of good friends. Determine the full name of each woman, the item that each forgot, and the extra item that each packed.

    1. Barbara, whose last name wasn't Drumlin, didn't forget her floppy hat. Cindy didn't pack an extra beach towel.

    2. Ms. Drumlin packed an extra beach bag. Sallyís last name wasnít Sparks.

    3. Katy Larsen didnít pack an extra floppy hat. Ms. Fuchi didnít forget her beach towel.

    4. The woman who forgot her suntan lotion packed an extra beach towel.

    5. Sally, whose last name wasnít McNeal, forgot her sunglasses. Pamela didnít forget her beach towel.

    6. The five women were Ms. McNeal, the woman who packed extra suntan lotion, the woman who forgot her beach towel, Cindy, and the woman who forgot her floppy hat.

    I'm guessing copper. Wait, we are talking about the electrical pickup shoes that conduct the power from the 3rd rail to the motors, right? :p

    Conductors wear black shoes, as far as I know.

    the shoes are inversely pigmented to C (speed of light in a vacuum) - train speed over distance from observers position when approaching times distance from observer when retreating or:

    C-Ts
    Do1 * Do2

    What was the colour of the shoes on Train 1's conductor?

    We'll seriously miss you and your puzzles, Bamboo. You might think about investing in a Sprint or AT&T aircard if you go too nuts without the interweb.
    I think those are about a hundred bucks a month for unlimited use, and that Bamboo is simply refusing to pay for a one year broadband contract since he's only going to be there for six months. Then again, the aircard would be MUCH more versatile...

    And I haven't looked at the puzzle, but if Ferris got it right, he owes us a new brain teaser!
