The Sue Line crews was not sure which way to proceed, but thanks to some timely help from the folks a CVP we were able to move forward again.

After some changes to the system, it was again time to run trains.

Charlie DeVillbiss (above) was back in Alex Yard and keeping the train rolling.

Mose Crews (above) was keeping the north end of the layout running smoothly as the Shreveport Yard Master.

Danny Garland (above) was busy as the Maryville Operator (MoP) who also keep the E-Branch and Lake Hamilton humming along. When Danny got caught up, he also worked the Shreveport Public Belt Line.

Lionel Brangham (above) kept the traffic moving in Sue City as the Sue City Operator.

Mainline traffic was kept moving by five engineers:

1- Ron Brannon get ready to move a train out of I-49 Yard in Blanchard (above, left) and appears to be enjoying thew run when he was found in North Park (above, right) .

2- Rob Robbins using his WiThrottle to run his train as it starts out of Alex Yard (above, left) and later is seen switching in Dutchman Falls (above, right). Rob, what happened to the Dutchman Falls Switcher?
