Six talented model railroaders and experienced operators participated in the action during Eagle River Division’s operating session on Saturday, August 12th 2017. There were the usual derailments, problem couplers, and minor electrical issues that always seem to magically appear during an ops session, but they were infrequent, and nobody died.
Guest and Master Model Railroader Ron Williams surprised the group with a box of delicious Krispy Kreme donuts, which soon disappeared. Hot coffee, snacks, and cold drinks were also available. Ron also brought a Kato Union Pacific business car with him, which we added to a passenger train, and ran as a business special. It caught us off-guard enough that I am not sure anyone captured a photo of it.
The photos below show Ron, Ron, Mike, Steve, Dave, and Dan deep in though and hard at play. Click on any image to enlarge.
And Dan, I apologize again for not telling you I was turning off the layout. Oops.
