Op Session #2
The Chesapeake, Wheeling and Erie Railroad held its second operating session this past Saturday. A few new trains were added to the schedule and the gremlins were held at bay for the most part. But most importantly, everyone had a good time. We dispatched using track warrants, which are a little too new for my era of the mid-1970's but work really well for the current set-up. We use car card and waybills as shown in the photos below.
The schedule included eight trains. In the photo below, Stuart Thayer has taken the SD40/SD40-2/SD40 lashup from COXE42 to the "house" at North Pierce.
Next up, Anthony Hardy is getting ready to bring the Dry Creek Turn into Nelsonville.
And in the photo below, Bill Ford and Ron Parish have just brought the Elkwater Branch Roustabout into Big Chimney and have set-out two wood chip hoppers on the Helper track.
There's a bit more detail on the session on the CWE blog. All in all, it was a great time, and it was really inspiring to see the layout in action.
