A great week with the Friday Night Group

Well it was another great week for the Lyon Valley Northern. After the OVAR dinner on Tuesday, I had to clean up the room for OPs Wednesday night and write the train orders on Thursday. Here is what it looked like just prior to operations.

During the session everyone was careful running at prototypical speeds, however the odd accident did occure when the train crew decided to put a caboose into a full siding. Hmm...One car to many...hey guys:)

Here is a crew operating the Richmond Yard. Don, Mike and Michel had a full evening with this timesaver...22 cars in and 22 out. Then grab the caboose and off to staging.

Here they are after departure with the CEFX SD90Mac in the lead. They are about to meet with a BNSF hotshot intermodal on the outside main heading southbound.

Here is a picture of Mike Hamer's great work putting in a curved wooden crossing at the yard lead into Richmond.

Here is Mike hard at work on an earlier work night. It is sure fun having friends in the hobby. Just great to motivate you to do more and you can learn a whole bunch from their expertise.

I got an email from a fellow forum member (Syl) from Quebec who asked if he could post this blog on his web site. I visited his site and I encourage everyone to have a look. He has a great model railway and some interesting links.

I am going over to Michel Boucher's D&H tonight. The progress on the extension is going well. He sent me a picture yesterday and I will post it for you to see.
