Reinforcements from New England

Randy as brakeman is dealing with the link and pin couplers, while engineer Jim seems to be enjoying the show.
This evening Jim Dufour and Randy Laframboise visited the layout. They are two New Englanders on a tour of layouts in Northern Virginia and Maryland. Both Jim and Randy have fine HO scale layouts. Jim models the B&M Chersire Branch, Randy models the Rutland.  You can find some videos of Jim's layout here.

and Randy's here 

This afternoon they visited Paul Dolkos's Baltimore Harbor. After  steak and beers at Hops, they toured the USMRR Aquia Line. They got a chance to run the RR and do some switching. They were also the first outsiders to get a view of the upcoming HO harbor layout. It was a fun visit especially since the Aquia line ran without mishap.
