Friday Report

by Mike Hays


Hi All,

Friday 13-Jan-2017:  Personnel running trains were Doug Wallace, Bob Garvin, Timmy Lewis and Mike Hays.

The doors opened at 10 AM. We were surprised at the number of Visitor's in the gallery.

We were running Conventional, DCS, and TMCC (mostly conventional).

This was an O27 train day. The oldest engine was cataloged in 1947.

The engines that ran the first part of day were not running at closing. Normally we bring two engines and run them for an hour at a time.
