were weighing coal hoppers as they came in at this
work station. A seated job that was fun.

Monday, Dan Toomey, author of "The War Came by Train," and guest curator of the B&O Museum Civil War exhibit, visited the layout. He returned the models that were on loan, got a chance to inspect my various layouts and to discuss future projects for the museum. It was a fun visit.
I did a book review of Dan's book a few months ago. I really recommend it. It is a very good read.
Dan's great great grandfather was an engineer on the B&O during the war. So we agreed we would name one of the loco engineers on the layout Toomey.
