Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend and got a lot accomplished. Let's see how we all did. Saturday: As predicted, the team consisting of my out of state friend, company photographer and I left early in the morning and arrived in Toluca to dark signals. Not a good start! We had breakfast and hung out there for about an hour before heading to our first location. We were granted a few east bound stack trains and that seamed to open things up. We had a full day of railfanning and had some great opportunities for images. We capped the day off at Galesburg looking over the railfan bridge and then having BBQ. We got home at just after 10:00pm. Sunday: The big day. My buddy Brian got to be the first to run former C&IM #31, the Monticello Museum's latest addition. Brian had a good time running this one of two RS1325's. My out of of state buddy was next, then we went to lunch and had a good time. I was the last operator of the day so it was just me and Angela along with the Museum's volunteer and instructor, Bill, in the cab. What made this special is it was a small freight train consisting of a hopper, boxcar, two tank cars and a covered hopper and caboose. At the end, I received my official paper and a cool magnet of the locomotive I operated. I can now say I have operated an NW2 and an RS1325. I need to add the Wabash #1189 to my list. It was a great way to finish the weekend. So how about you? What did you get done this weekend? Let us know. We'll assemble again on Friday the 23rd to start the process all over again. Until then, have a great weekend, be safe, stay healthy and as always... High Greens!
