Once again two modelers from Longview, Texas have joined us for an evening of FUN running trains.

Tom Heller (above, left) and Jerry Jones (above, right)
are seen at Union Street Yard, checking over paperwork
before running the Shreveport Public Belt.

Ken Ellison (above) is seen with his WiiThrottle getting ready
to take a train from Alexandra Yard northward to Shreveport Yard.

Mose Crews (above) is also on the mainline tonight.
Here we seen Mose Crews switching a train at Robinson.

Ron Brannon (above) is bring his northbound Extra Board Train
 to a stop at a red signal at the north end of Maryville.

Here we see a very rare sight, Jim Willis (above) is
switching a southbound train at Jeauxville.

Rob Robbins (above) is checking his north bound mainline
train before leaving Alexandria Yard.

Rodney Dixon (above) is all smiles as his Southbound Extra
Board Train is ready to leave Sherwood.

Danny Garland (above) is busy as the Shreveport Yard Master switching
in the Marshall & East Texas (MET) yard in Shreveport.

Charlie DeVilbiss (above) kept things humming at Sue City.

Marvin Barnett, Jr. (above) took on the duties of the
Maryville Operator (MOp). Either Halloween is
coming or Marvin has been on a very strict diet.

Lionel Brangham (above) took over the controls of
working alone as the Alexandria Yard Master.

Dispatching this evening was senior dispatcher Richard Kamm (above)

O' Christmas Tree, O' Christmas Tree

The calender may say the middle of October, but for my wife it is almost Christmas.

The Sue Line crew is ready to pitch in and get the Christmas Tree set up in the den.
