FNG Central Ops Session

The Friday Night Group (FNG) Central was at the LVN on 4 Feb 2011.  These guys were a combination of experienced and new model railroaders who put the layout through it's paces.

Here is a shot of Mike and Brian operating the wayfreight.  Lots of good communication allows the operation to run smoothly.
Here Paul and Deb are seen operating an RS18 in Richmond Yoard.  This area is also a timesaver that exchanges 21 cars.  The record is 1 hour 33 minutes at prototypical speeds.

Here you can see a BNSF intermodal hot shot led by overland GP60Ms.

All in all everything ran smoothly and it was a pleasure to share the LVN with such nice model railroaders.
