The Clinch Valley hosted an ops session last Thursday evening - 16 operators for 3 hours of running trains.

During the fall/winter season, the railroad hosts montly (and sometimes twice a month) op sessions.

All photo sites host photos as thumbnails.   You need to click on the photo and it automatically enlarges.

Cab ride video is great, but it would be better without all the chatter in the background--so that you could here the click of the rail joints( barely preceptable).

That one was from the op session with 18 people in the basement.  Lots of chatter and such.   Check out some of the other cab ride videos I posted.

Only problem that I ever have is that they like to "improve" things, and then I have to figure out the new rigmarole. Wish that they would leave things as they are.

But then, I'm an ancient doufus. No way could I ever figure out an Iphone--more comfortable with two paper cups and a bit of string.

Why not use the gallery photo section here on Freerails? It's so easy and it's free!
Looks like you have great op sessions. Mine seem to be an "Experiment in Terror" followed by a "Visit to Porky's" but we somehow manage to haul several hundred tons of ore to the smoke belching smelter.

Great stuff.

Thanks Woodie, I never thought of that. I created a folder for Clinch Valley RR and put a couple of photos in it as a test. Looks like it should work okay.

Use the REPLY to send photos, not Quick Reply. Then in the 2 rows of icons above the reply field, you will se a big G at the end of the second row. Click on that, then look at which photo you want, click on the photo, and there it is in the post. Really easy and I need easy.
