Marty,I'm hoping to join you again next year for the get-together; I'll have to see how things work out. I just found out that I'm going to be a daddy, late April-early May 09. My wife is not ruling out coming; we may have to bring Grandma to help with the new baby. I'll keep you posted.

Marty: I thought you knew how it happens. If you need refresher training, call me on the phone....I'll talk you through it.

Thanks everyone. We're really excited --- as everyone is with their first. I guess after almost 3 years of marriage, we can show the world that no one needed a shotgun at our wedding.....

We already have our reservations at the Best Western. The King size beds are already gone for that weekend.

We stayed at the Super 8 out by the freeway this year. It wasn't all that super. The smokers have permeated that place so much that it doesn't really matter whether you get a non-smoking room or not, it still smells. The bed was so bad I had to sleep in the recliner every night.

Plan early. See you next year!

Any more most motels just don't cut it, They are over priced and still have the problem. I prefer to travel with the camper and pay my $23 per night.
Later RJD

Because of the Sept get together the RR has grown from a single track main with couple of branch lines to 3 mains.
thus

After a couple of little changes ,,IF everyone goes clockwise you could run 4 trains per main.
go from main 2 to main 1 , blind in , then later
go up (c) to main 3 ,blind in for awhile and come back down (b) to main 2 again.
the doted line is the ONLY reverseing spot now. it will be marked.

More passing sidngs will be added.

Marty,

You guys seem to have too much fun out there!! At some point, I will make it to one of these thingys, but I guess it'll be the BPSU 15th annual by then.

Bryan,
Congratulations! I just saw your announcement. My son Luke turns 1 on Sunday, and I cannot believe how fast a year went. All these guys tried to warn me, but did I listen? No way! Good luck!

Mark
