ProRail 2018 Finale

Bob and Kai on the morning train out of Aquia Landing
The last sessions for ProRail concluded today. Bob Willer, Kai Slovei, Don Ball and Don Wetmore arrived to operate. Thomas Pierpoint also stopped by to help out.  The sessions went extremely well. After a brief introduction to the layout, they went to work. They hardly had any questions and did extremely well. In fact, I was able to take a nap and prepare lunch since they were working so well.

The Dons, Ball and Wetmore, pull into Aquia Landing
Bob and Thomas were still running trains about 1610, making them the last operators on duty for ProRail 2018.

Thomas and Bob were the last crew members on duty for ProRail 2018. 

Overall, ProRail 2018 was a great event. It really was fun to host everyone.

However there is hardly time to reflect on it, as Alicia and I are heading to Vancouver to attend the Railway Modelers Meet of British Columbia where I will be the Special Guest Speaker.  Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in North America and we are excited to be going. Yes, we will sneak in some rounds of golf and garden tours in addition to an op session on Mark Dance's railroad (yes, the inventor of the "Pole Dance") and the rest of the meet. If you are in the area, please come to the meet to say, "hello."
