Hi Everyone,
Thank to Steve for asking me for photos. I tried to do it long time but I can't do it.
What is Gordon Cook's email address? His email address is not in  my mail lists.
I just learned how to take photos at night. I bought digital camera last Jan or Feb.
Talk to you later.

The engine will look better if they put light strings all over the cab. I hope they will do it next year. Dave

There have been emails going around, about the crew and operating things from Victorian Christmas. Some things that I noticed, is that passnegers were confused as to what side of the train to get off on at Alna Center, so you could ask them to get off on the other side of the train, and they look at you like your an idiot, and they continue to go any way, even with the engine coming South, to hook on the other end of the train. The train crew was standing around talking, and trying to maintain 100 feet of space isn't exactly easy to do. When the train stopped, people continued to go around the back end of the train, after I had them stop getting off the platforms they went around the back of the caboose. That is why you see me on the fourth photo down, at the back of the caboose, to stop the passengers from continuing to go across the tracks. We need more crowd control people for major events in my opinion.

Hello Joe,
Yes, I noticed passengers got confused which side do they get off. They tried to across the track when they run engine around at Alna Center. It will be better if the train stop at siding and let passengers get off on one side that face  carriage stop area so engine can run around the train on main track instead of siding. See photo at bottom.
