Just to give everyone a heads up, so far we have 3 folks signed up for tomorrow's class but anyone is welcome to join in. Instead of the original format of a three day course for training, we are consolidating to a one day course which I'll offer each of the next 3 Saturdays.

Alternatively, I suppose we could post both here on the forum, but that might be technologically difficult... so I'm not sure about that.
Assuming the documents are in an electronic file form, say PDF or Word etc, I think they likely can be made available here at the forum.
Exactly how that would be done best will likely depend on the file size. In any case, I'm willing to see what I can do if you'd like to email the file to me at buxton.graham@gmail.com
(as a initial test, I attached trivial PDF file to this post, but I can't see the results til after I post this message.) :P

Graham,

That worked.

Thanks for the test. It is good to know that can be an option.

Today we had the pleasure of working with 5 trainees during the 1st car host training workshop. We learned a lot from each other and every element of the training proved that many hands working together can truly produce a superior product! Thanks to everyone who participated and assisting with the training. I'll be posting the documents from the training here shortly.

I'd like to heartily welcome Lisa and Andy Gross, Dick Picard, Raija Suomela, Sonja Wyllie (who has been with the Ry many years, but not in this context) to the WW&F fold. You all brought plenty of excitement and great questions with you! Your presence has us all excited and looking

We'll be holding additional trainings the next two Saturdays March 30th and April 6th. You only need to attend one session to become qualified and we'd love to have you join the crew! Classes start at 8:00 with coffee and introductions and get underway in earnest at 8:30 we go until 11 when we break for lunch, then continue with a trip up the line after lunch.

Whether you are available every weekend, or only occasionally, consider joining us!

More classes will be offered towards the summer months for those not regularly available.

Thanks so much everyone!

See you on the narrow gauge,
Steve

Steve, this is wonderful news.  Your ability to plan for this, and then be flexible in making it happen is magical.

Keep up the good work on the Car Host program moving forward.

There is a new (non-public) Forum section for Car Hosts (and related Docents, Tour Guides, etc.) Training materials will be posted there, along with tips and tricks for interacting with our guests. If you are a Car Host, or would like to be one, let me know and I will add you to the member list.
