Just when you think you have finally gotten all the gremlins, bugs and undocumented features under control, up come some more. Finally the USB printers are behaving on the new computer and the RailOp program. With than behind us, it was time to RUN TRAINS.......


A pair of Marquette Union Terminal  (MUT) locos along with a Sue Line loco pull a train into Sue City.





Danny Garland (above) was back in Shreveport on the north end of the railroad and the trains were rollin.



Jim Willis (above) was at the south end of the railroad as the Alexandria Yard Master and kept that end of the railroad moving as well.



Matt Tessier (above) shown near Shreveport, was the Maryville Operator (MoP) for the evening.


Paul Harwell (above) seen on the Sue City Turn near Morgan was the Sue City Operator..



Mainline traffic was kept rolling by engineers like Ken Ellison (above) who is busy in North Park.



Another mainline engineer was Rodney Dixon (above) who is waiting in Sherwood before moving south to Jeauxville.



Rob Robbins (above) was along helping to keep trains moving on the mainline. Rob is leaving Shreveport headed for Brandon.



On the mainline was Doran McQueary (above,center) and his daughter Emily (above, right). I'm not sue be this may be a first as it looks like Strawberry Shortcake (above, right) is also running trains tonight.


Dispatching was David Colvin (above, left) and Richard Kamm (above, right).



David Colvin (above) could also be seen along the mainline as well as in the Dispatcher's Office. A true Renaissance man, David Colvin, along with Jim Willis, also supplies the photos of tonight's session.
