My youngest son, Joe (above), was a special guest this evening. Joe likes near St.Louis with his wife Rebecca and their dogs. Joe is the only one of my three children to have taken an interest in model railroading. Joe is in N- scale and belongs to several modular groups in the St. Louis area as well as starting his N-scale empire in his basement. It was good to have Joe this evening.A jack of all trades, Joe also provided this photos from this session.

Jim Willis(above) was, once again, the Alexandria Yard Master.

Danny Garland (above) was the Shreveport Yard Master,
running Shreveport and Blanchard.

Mose Crews (above) was the Sue City Operator and kept trains
running smoothly thru Sue City.

Rob Robbins (above) was the MOp and kept things moving
in Maryville, Lake Hamilton and the E-Branch.
