But despite the crazy/great schedule, I can't skip over reporting on one of my ops sessions - since getting folks together to bring the railroad to life is one of the main reasons I'm doing this project!
So, without further ado, here's a little slideshow of the evening. . .
|BillS held down the Saybrook Tower/Dispatcher's role again this time. I think he actually likes it!
|Having finished operating PDX-1, BobM is helping out in staging as RickB starts out on PDX-2 from New London/East End Staging while ChrisZ (conductor on PDX-2) looks on back in Saybrook.
|Randy took care of East End Staging again - and it looks like Rick is having a good time. But the session is just starting...
|ChrisZ reviews the paperwork for PDX-2 as it switches Old Saybrook
|JamesM held down the duties at West End Staging, only having enough time to raise a hand to wave. No smile this time - too much concentration!
|GregL and BobV working the Airline Local in Mill Hollow
|PDX-2 heads up the Valley Line on the east leg of the wye in Saybrook
|Cool view looking "north" into Essex
|TIME WARP! BobV brought is battery-powered(!) ("dead rail") GP-9 to use on the Airline Local. Yeah - it's almost 10 yrs too new for my era, but at least it's New Haven. And looks and runs great!
But, like the reason for this report being late, my lack of sessions is due mostly to being out and about doing other RR stuff I haven't been able to do before. And if there's one good reason to put off an ops session or two, I figure that's it!
