A new month has begun and in walks Matt Tessier fresh from college at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Matt Tessier quickly went to his favorite location- The Maryville Operator (MOp).

Matt Tessier (above) is busy switching
cars in the Lake Hamilton Paper Mill using
the T9000E throttle from CVP Products..

Mose Crews (above) tries out one of the new T5000TM throttles
from CVP Products while working as the Sue City Operator.

Lionel Brangham (above) is hard at work
as the Shreveport Public Belt Operator.
Here we see Lionel Brangham switching cars
in Keithville with his WiiThrottle.

Rob Robbins (above) is on the mainline in Leming with
a pair of Proto2000 SD50's and is using
the RailProTM system from Ring Engineering.

I am not sure, but this may be
some kind of record four different Throttles
(T9000E, T5000E
TM,WiiThrottle and RailProTM)

all being used on the same layout at the same time
with no restrictions for anyone to "keep in his block"

Charlie DeVillbiss (above) appears happy as he oversees Alexandria Yard.
Here we see Charlie DeVillbiss check paper work on a train in I-49 Yard.

Danny Garland (above) once again was busy moving
cars and trains as the Shreveport Yard Master.

A rare sight on the Sue Line- Jim Willis (above) working as a mainline engineer.
Here we see Jim Willis in Robinson running his south bound
piggy back train with a T5000TM Throttle from CVP Products.

Here we see Rodney Dixon (above) is making a final check
of his paper work before leaving Shreveport Union Street Yard
with his southbound extra board train.

Another rare sight- Dispatcher In Chief, David Colvin (above), running a
south bound local train. Could it be that the T5000TM Throttle
from CVP Products got him out of the office?

Rounding out the mainline operators, Ken Ellison (above) 
can be seen at Ft. Barrow  waiting on a signal to get
into Maryville. with a north bound extra train.
Ken Ellison also provided the photos of this session- Many Thanks, Ken.


It look like the "Scenery Guy" has been busy in Sherwood.
Could this be part of the famous Sherwood Forest?

It looks like the cattle are quiet and well fed in Robert's Crossing.

A small crew shack in on the Colvin Family Lines,
 or CFL,near Robert's Crossing.

The diamond were the Colvin Family Lines crosses the Sue Line at RCX.

Looks like there is plenty of wood at the Pulp Wood Yard in RCX.

They say "The Devil is in the details".
Could it be that all the nail holes are
in the lumbar company at Robert's Crossing.

They also say "His bark is worse than his bite."
Could this be true for the BARC company in  Robert's Crossing.
By the way, BARC is for my brother Robert Kamm
 and his family- Brandon, Amy, Robert and Carolyn.

A good book and a good dog make a good day in Leming.

Can you help her get her kitten out of the tree in Leming?

If you know my grandparents on my Mother's side you,
then you can find Roy C. Taylor and his wife Pearl Taylor in Leming.

If you know what he did during a session, then you can find
"Fat Jack" Leming at the Leming Gas Works in Leming.
This structure was a gift from a great man, Cliff Robinson of Dallas, Texas.

Another "memorial structure" on the Sue Line.
In loving memory of Dee Murphree in Eastman.
