The T9000ETMthrottles are gone and the T5000ETM units are ready for full testing. The first challenge was how to get the T5000E were we could use it when we wanted to. Ken Ellison came up the the solution- The KELI  (below).

Subtle, but efffective. A length of copper wire to eye connectors and a dab or two of solder and you have the KELI- Ken Ellison Lanyard Interface.

As we are no longer using the T9000ETM
they are up for sale for $100 each.
Five have been sold and there are only 7 left-
First come first served. 

Here we see Ken Ellison (above) ironically, this evening Ken Ellison was operating the SD50's with the RailProTM System. Ken also provided the photos of this session- Many thanks for both the KELI and the photos.

Jim Willis (above) appears to have his hands full as he begins his shift as the Alexandria Yard Master.

Danny Garland (above) is checking his paperwork
while operating as the Maryville Operator (MOp).

Jason Busey (above) was back and tonight
he was busy as the Sue City Operator.

Mose Crews (above) was in charge of The Shreveport Yard area.

Two visitors shared the mainline, Tom White (above, right) and
his guest Larry Cich (above left) from Creston- NOT Chicago, Illinois.
I goofed up and had Larry as Terri- Mia culpa.

Paul Harwell seems happy as he switches his train in Jeauxville.

Charles Kneipp (above) seen in Pinecrest,
was busy with a few maintenance jobs.

As he was an out of town guest,
no one pointed out to Larry (NOT Terru) Cich (above)
that his hat had the wrong spelling-
its SUE not SOO.
