NOW TRY TO KEEP THIS PAGE AND THE MAP PAGE OPEN AND THIS WILL GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT HAPPENS IN AN OPERATING SESSION OR SEQUENCES OF OPERATION.

WHILE THIS IS NOT STRICTLY MY TIMETABLE IT IS CLOSE TO WHAT I DO AND THE OPERATIONS? ... WELL THEY ARE AS EXTENSIVE AS WHAT I WANT THEM TO BE

A couple of basic tenets,  Whatever Engines go East must go West next time, Same with Passenger stock ( The RDC's and Canadian cars) Rollingstock can go either way once the cars are in the yard. Many trains are through trains and relatively little wayside work.  Anyway Enjoy and I hope you follow it
