Fridaynight Group First Operating session January 2006

Well it has been 20 days since the first bit of track went in. The Friday night gang came to visit. We enjoyed operating the time saver. It was interesting to see the approaches taken. Every move made changed the parameters for the next pair. In the mean time others operated the newly completed inside main and classification yard. They had fun with the unit BNSF coal train, the Grain train and double stacks.

Here is a shot of the classification yard with Overland's latest BC Rail release in the view.

The Fridaynight group are great guys. We visit each others model railways and share interests in the hobby. Lots of activities here in Ottawa as well. We take part in OVAR has 175+ members and meet once a month to have dinner, and have a presentation on a railway related topic.

The NMRA is alive and well. The Saint Lawrence division located in the Ottawa area is very active with layout tours and clinics every month.

I agree with Chris. Ottawa is a hotbed of model railroaders and many layouts "set the bar"! We're glad you moved to Ottawa, Chris!
