Lest the complement go to my head, it was noted by one wag at the end of the day that either position (brakeman or president) essentially served the same purpose - stopping forward progress.

Dave, I love your self deprecating sense of humor. Thanks for sharing.

I agree, Dave is very good at being presidential.

So nice to hear of good reports from yesterday! James, I know we were very close to our highest ridership year ever. How did we do?

Sounds like it was a very productive day. How was the notice "published" so people knew there would be train rides?

We aren't close.  We're over: 4800 paid riders (100+ last year's record), 6400 total riders (100+ last year's record).

It was announced on our Facebook page and web site. There wasn't a huge push to get the word out. This method seems to work well for last-minute events.

For a low Victorian Christmas attendance, I would say we did very well then. Hopefully next year we can set another record breaking year as far as higher attendance.
