I'm discovering that there's nothing quite like the relaxation and pleasant diversion you get from just operating a local freight train. Lots of others got to this party before me, but - driven by the lack of formal op sessions - I've just recently arrived at this realization, having operated the outbound leg of the Airline Local just a few weeks ago. As I mentioned back then, my session setup resulted in a nice full crock pot of operations that I could feed off of for a while. And so, having hopped back in the roadster, I headed down to Saybrook Junction to see if I could catch the eastbound local freight. . .
Luckily, we got there just as it was nosing into the balloon track/Track 6 . . .
