Thanks, John !


Over this past weekend,
I decided to re-write my switch lists.

I'd written a 4-position switch list,
for 4-trains to cycle through the interchange,
whereas it'd reset everything, at the end of the 4th movement.


On previous op. sessions, I usually just run 2-trains,
and that takes around 3 hours or so.

And crews generally want to take photos and BS after that timeframe.
(I'm not one of those guys who wants to make people work
for a long timeframe, as that's too much like real work)


I'd gotten some new cars
(the ET&WNC wood hoppers I'd always wanted)
and re-wrote the list, but it messed the scheme up badly.

It took a while to get it right, by placing cars where they should be,
looking around and making notes or changing positions.

By the time I was done, I think I got it all correct.
