Plowing Monday and Wednesday.  Monday crew is usually light; any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jason

More of a rail-clearing trip than a plowing trip.  Good to expose railhead to sunshine.

Unfortunately I can’t be there Friday, but I’m sure there will be a crew on site doing final prep.

See ya

Hope someone will be making a video for posting to those who are unable to attend.  Not to mention it makes for great advertising!

Work on Saturday Dec 16: Victorian Christmas.

We had about 700 people - a decent turn out.  Trains were between 60% and 80% full all day (as opposed to 105% full 2 years ago).  Two train consists were operated.  Meanwhile Santa and Mrs. Clause were at Alna Center, Eric Schade had his G-scale? train set up in the car shop, along with the hot cider.  Nancy had her snack shack set up.  And, as always, everybody seemed to have a good time.

Anticipated work for Saturday Dec 23.

Victorian Christmas, Take II!  Peat and repeat.  As I understand it, we have been having trouble finding enough people to cover all positions, so if you are able to come please do.
