Apparently the Mayans were wrong, perhaps bad math, perhaps bad karma. The world did not come at an end at 5:00 AM on December 21, 2012.

Joining us once again was Paul Shattuck (above) who made his annual Christmas/New Years visit from Witchita, Kansas.

Mose Crews (above) once again was the Shreveport Yard Master.

Charlie DeVillbiss (above) was busy as the Shreveport Public Belt
operator in Keithville.

Danny Garland (above) with his WiiThrottle kept
Sue City
moving all sessions long.

Marvin Bennett, Jr. (above) had his hands full as
The Maryville Operator (MOP) on the E-Branch.

Tonight there was a new face in Alexandria Yard.
David Colvin (above) kept things running smoothly.

Ron Brannon (above) appears to be enjoying himself as
an Extra Board Engineer.

Rodney Dixon (above) is busy with an
Extra Board Freight in Crews Siding.

Lionel Brangham (above) is using his wiiThrottle
to control an Extra Board Freight in
Blanchard at the I-49 West Yard.

Another guest this evening was "Noah"
who was brought by Lionel Brancham.
"Noah" is seen with an
Extra Board Grain Train.

Sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train!!

A northbound local is passing through Brandon on the way to Shreveport.
