If you like sleepy branchline operations...

If you like running the local during the ops sessions at your club, you're going to LOVE this...

Shot last week when Brian invited me along for a ride.  Be patient, it's a half hour of thread bare, weed bound railroading over some of the worst track on the shore...

Dial up probably need not apply, unless you set it up to download before you go to bed...and plan to watch it in the morning.

Lee a great video. That is the coolest railroad operation.
Short lines rule if you ask me. Yeah the class I are great if you want to see long
trains. To me switching operations is where it's at.

Nice job, Lee. Unfortunately, the NS blocking things up at Townsend is all too common between Class I's and short lines. The NS dispatcher should have at least had the courtesy to call MDDE and tell it not to bother...

NS?  Courtesy?  You have quite a sense of humor, Gregg... ;D
All the way back the engineer was singing a little ditty about NS - No Service...

Yes, this is the level of railroading that appeals most to me, too.  But I've got to have my main line so when I drop the cars off at the interchange, I know they're going to go somewhere!

Very nice Lee!  Reminded me quite a bit about ops on shortlines here.  Just replace NS with PAR....but wait PAR has 4 day bottle necks for us!
