October 13 2015 marked the very first official operating session on the layout. Friends AJ, Dave, Jack, Ken and Doug from our regular operating group put the layout through its paces for a few hours. I’m pleased to say everything worked close to plan, and there were a few learnings taken from the session.
I’ve purchased some FRS radios and have printed out a basic OCS clearance form template to be used in the next session, once I clean out a spot in the furnace room for the dispatcher to sit!
AJ runs a north bound freight at Pinesul while Jack waits in the siding with the local.
Doug pulls into Kennedy where he’ll lift a couple of cars on the south end
Ken does a pretty good job of filling the yard at Chetwynd with cars. By the end of the session he managed to sort everything out!
