Tonight's session was photographed by Sue Line Crew member Jim Willis (below). Jim Willis was also a mainline engineer for NoLaCRA this session.

With four of the regular members out due to vacation, family obligations or work commitments, it was decided that we would only run trains on the North Louisiana Connecting Railroad Association (NoLaCRA) side of the run board.

Charle DeVillbiss (above) once again handled the chores of the Maryville Operator (MOp).
