The last time my good friend Keith Gutierrez visited the Sue Line it was powered by Rail Command. In the intervening almost seven years, the railroad has been converted to CVP EasyDCC and many improvements have been made, but I could not get Keith Gutierrez over for a visit. I had begged and begged him to visit, Finally, my wife who is about to have her seven back surgery asked Keith Guiterrez (below, left) to visit and he FINALLY did. Also shown is Richard Kamm (below, right).

We had a wonderful afternoon visiting with each other, viewing the railroad and catching up on old times. Many, many thanks to Keith for FINALLY visiting the Sue Line.
