      First Day of Fall on the J&B

      Just a perfect day for operations.   Temps in the 60s, and the J&B RR is ready to start the day.

      Ken showed up about 930 and we got straight to running the two trains that the J&B operates daily except for Sunday.

      Train #1 is being made up in Green Springs Yard.

      The run looks pretty straight forward.

      Here we are switching Occoquan.

      It got a bit tighter in Jackson, and we had to move cars only 2 at a time out of Buchanan Tool & Die.

      There just wasn't enough room at Matheson Textiles for the 5th car so we left it blocking a track.   We had to deal with that later when Train #2 picked up a couple of cars here.

      Of course by the time we got around running Train#2, I forgot to take any pictures of the run.  

      But, there was work to do.

      Anyway, it was a great day for operating a couple of trains.   We did have to dodge a number of acorns falling, but nobody was hit.  

      Thanks to Ken for coming down!

      Looks like Ken was there for the manual labor portion while you operated the trains!

      Yes, I had the easy part: I was the engineer.  Ken was the conductor.   It was great of him to come on down!

      So, Ken was the guy who had to bend up and down.  No wonder he wants a raised railroad!

      I don't care what I do when I go down to Bruce's, it's a good time with good company and a great layout. At least we got one in this year.........

      Is that the only OPs you had at Bruce's this year?  This time is a passing fast.  Obviously I'm loosing track of the years.  Its okay, I like it like that.

      Yeah, pretty pathetic, eh?   

      You guys need to visit the Nation's Capital!   And stop by here for some ops.
