The old year is gone, but hopefully, the lessons learned are not forgotten. It was back to work as usual for the Sue Line Crew.

Troy Rogers (above), a former regular on the Sue Line and now of Winnfield, Louiiana, and working for Sperry Rail Service was back for a visit. Troy Rogers, made up ID Cards for members when he was a regular (See below)

Also visiting with Troy Rogers were Donald Boyette, from Winnfield, Louisiana (below, left) and Nick Marajovitz (below, right), from Scott Depot Depot.

Also back for his last session before returning to college is Matt Tessier (below)
who served well as the Maryville Operator (MOp)..

The Sue City Operator position was filled by Mose Crews (below).

The Shreveport Yard Master was once again, Danny Garland (below).

And the Alexandria Yard Master was Jim Willis (below).

The mainline was busy with Marvin Bennett (below) apparently fresh from the Barber Shop (below).

Also on the mainline was Rodney Dixon (below) who is awaiting his train assignment.

Also on the mainline was Charlie DeVilbiss (below).

Ring Engineering http://www.ringengineering.com/ has introduced RailPro. RailPro is now available at dealers and I first found it on the www.yankeedabbler.com website along with Rail Master speakers. Now you can pick up an HO engine with an LM1 Ring sound decoder and the Ring HC1 controller  and operate on any train club HO layout- DC or DCC. Rail Pro also breaks the 4 digit engine number barrier and multiple clubs can operate on an interchange with the same engine number without interference.

Further information can be found at:


A RailPro starter system is about $600.00 and includes:
HC-1 Wireless Hand Held Controller with Color Touchscreen
LM-1 HO Scale Locomotive Module. A decoder to be placed in your locomotive
PWR-75 Power Supply

Additional information and the Users Manual for RailPro can be found at:
