April 3rd- Wise Men from Afar.

posted Apr 7, 2014, 10:00 AM by Sue Line RailRoad
Once again it was that time of year when traveling wise men come to visit the Sue Line. These wise men were going to Hograils in Bentonville, Arkansas, but elected to stop and operate with us. Boy were we glad they did.

To help these wise men, we placed a small sign (above) to help them find there way.

Immediately, the wise men took control of the Sue Line. Here
we see Dave Abramson (above, left), Art Houston (above, center)
and Dick Schneider (above, right). reviewing their operation plan.

Dick Schneider (above, foreground left) and Art Houston (above, foreground center)

Dave Abramson (back, right) are discussing with
Ole Melhouse (rear, black shirt and tan hat)
how to use the T5000 throttles.

Charles Kneipp (a/k/a Cyclops) looks like he is having a good time.
