It was the second session as dispatcher for Mose Crews (below) when he had a pile of things go wrong. For the first 30 minutes, he could not get signals to work on the panel only to find out that I had set up the wrong panel and there was no simple signal logic present. After a restart things went better, until---

after things went well for most of the session, with about 30 minutes to go, the computer mouse broke. After a frantic search for another mouse, the session limped along to its conclusion. Despite the "challenges" it was a fun night for all, except perhaps Mose Crews!!

Handling the River Front Yard Master was Danny Garland (above),

Marvin Bennett, Jr. (above) once again did an excellent job as the Ginnings Yard Master, and

David Durham (above) was the Shreveport Yard Master.

Craig Pearson (above) took on the Shreveport Belt Line job.

Charlie DeVillbiss (above) once again took on the Maryville Operator (MOP) job.

Jim Willis (above) was a mainline engineer

along with Rob Robbins (above).
