Saturday, Jim Strong hosted an ops session at the Woodland Railway. The event was attended by a rare East Coast appearance by prodigal son, Kevin, WVMGRS regulars, Bruce and Jean Chandler, and Jack Thompson. Sadly, the much anticipated running of the new downsized Connie was postponed due to the shippers using Kevin's package for a game of kickball. Several parts were broken or bent!
Jim used a color disc (painted pennies) method of routing cars. The discs corresponding to various destinations are placed on the cars. The Dunkirk, sporting a special Woodland Railway/C&A Ry. livery, was called into action -

Kevin was doing something in the bushes :confused:" border=0>"

Oh, he's running a passenger service ;)" border=0>"




Bruce tried running some of his smaller vehicles but the motor car got stuck sideways in the turn around tunnel at Woodland Junction. Not learning his lesson, he tried running the track inspection car through the same tunnel. Both will need a few nights of repairs /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crying.gif" border=0>"




Jack was also doing something in the bushes /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/ermm.gif" border=0>"



He was running his track inspection loco which needed five finger helper service to make it up the big 6% grade between Woodland Junction and Hemlock Hills.

Ben and Dusty discuss the nuisances of AirWire in Ben's mogul




I ran my new 7/8's scale rail tractor off of 4 AA cells. 6 volts was just right and it looked great running around the layout -




A good time was had by all - (left to right) Kevin, Dusty, Ben, unknown woman, Alan, Jim, Ken, Bruce, Jean and Big Jack.

Nice photos!
Sorry I missed you--we got out there about 3:15. I got to meet Jack Thompson and see his amazing work, and also to meet Kevin and see the Connie in person
A wonderful railroad--charming and fun to watch or to operate on--as far as I could tell. I'm not running anything on batteries yet.

Sorry I missed you too, Mike. I left around 2:45 (had work to do). Hope to catch you next time and we'll be sure to get you at the hands of a throttle.
