After a week of work and a week off, it was time to get back to the fun part- running trains.

Ken Ellison (above, left) and Paul Harwell (above, right) compare trains in I-49 yard. Does size really matter?

Jim Willis (above) is about to pick up a train in Shreveport. Is it just me or does Jim seem happier when running trains than working?

Charlie DeVillbiss is busy "working a freight" in Sue City.

Danny Garland (above, left) work Shreveport Yard while Ken Ellison (above, right) brings a train into the yard area.

Rodney Dixon (above,left) watches as Mose Crews (above, right) switches out a cut of cars from a train on the mainline in Leming.

Matt Tessier (above, left) is waiting in Maryville as Jim Willis (above, right) brings a train through Crawley's Ridge headed for Maryvillw.

Ken Ellison (above, left) and Charlie DeVillbiss (above right) await signals to depart at Richardson.

It looks like Charlie DeVillbiss (above, left) left first, as Ken Ellison (above, right) is still awaiting clearance at Richardson.

Mose Crews (above) appears busy switching a train at NorthPark.

Danny Garland (above, left) is making up a train in Shreveport Yard while Jim Willis (above, right, on stool) is switching a train in Sue City and Rodney Dixon (above, right, rear) is bring a train through on the East Main at Sue City

Tonight, once again, the train ran smoothly under the watchful eye of David Colvin (above) who functioned as the dispatcher and trainmaster for the evening.
