on the E-Branch as the Maryville Operator (MOP).

Dan Kampsniper (above) is bringing his train into Maryville.

Craig Schwabauer (obove) is checking his switch list before working Pinecrest.

The other group drove over from Dallas. They are:

Tom Santella (above) seen at the pre-operation briefing.

Jim (Gert) Muller, the Alexandria Yard Master for the evening,
rounded out the visiting groups.


Mose Crews (above) worked as the Shreveport Yard Master.
