Well it is another fall start to the FNGer's operations sessions. I was happy to Host, Fred, John, Jim, Joel, Mike and a guest Ryan. We ran the standard set of trains which included the Richmond Turn, the Way Freight, the Coal Drag, and the Grain Train. The session ran smoothly and everyone had a great time. Of course post ops we had a good chat in the crew lounge along with our standard fair: Fresh Cheese Curds, Coffee Cake, Beer, and Pop. Enjoy this video compilation of the night's action.
For Ryan it was a great opportunity to learn the ropes from Mike Hamer. For an 11 year old, he showed great maturity and displayed great throttle control skills. Mike expanded his knowledge of switching and train handling and really enjoyed his time teaching him on the LVN. It is good to see the youth in our hobby will carry on our love of trains.
Next week it is off to the Boston and Maine. Have a great week and I will keep you all posted.
