The door slowly opened and in walked Paul Shattuck, an affiliate Sue Line crew member, a United States Air Force consultant, who is just back from the Middle East (below).

Paul Shattuck who lives in Wichita, Kansas, was passing through and joined us for our regular Thursday session. Paul Shattuck has presented the Sue Line Crew with an American flag which has been flown of three different aircraft in the middle east. It will be mounted and proudly displayed in the layout room. Many thanks Paul Shattuck.

Once again the session was under the control of dispatcher Rob Robbins (above) who appeared more at ease than last week when he first took control.

This week Sue Line 4081 (above, left) and Sue Line 4083 (above, right) as well as Bistineau Southern 3723 were spotted on the Sue Line. These beautiful locomotives were the work of Sue Line Crew member Dillon Stokes (above).

Manning the yards this session were Marvin Bennett, Jr. (above, left) and Mose Crews (above, right).

Operating trains were Danny Garland (above, left) and Jim Willis (above, right).

Along with Charlie DeVillbiss (above, left) and David Durham (above, right).

As the session came to a close, the Amtrak local was spotted near Pinecrest.
