I agree! What, do you think we come there to run trains???

Rick, documenting some of the trains would be a cool idea. While some are 'routine' (locals and through freights), many of your operations are very unique and difficult to describe. But a photo-essay of sorts would be fun to do and make for an interesting read.

Documenting some of the trains/ops would be great, either through photo or video, both would be ideal,

You should go to your union. Wasn't garlic dip and chairs negotiated in the last contract? This type of harassment from the management should not be tolerated. LOL

O-Oh, Labor unrest!!!

Rick, now that I got my camera back from its trip to 'Lost Wages' with my wife and the annual trip with her sisters to someplace, I can photograph the train(s)on the layout like you suggested. I also think posting in the Operations thread is a good idea as that is what it is for.

After thirty-something years of wedded bliss, I have learned that the HTRR CFO can be a tough negotiator....she keeps making sly little hints about grabbing a throttle some ops night and showing everyone how it's REALLY done. I swear she's a closet operator......LOL

I agree, Mr. Next Session Harsco Supervisor. You KNOW I can't possibly chew gum, walk, exchange coal/coke loads, fix couplers, and pester the Herr and Maclay guys ("Five minutes till tap! Five minutes till tap!") as well as take artistic pictures too.

This is why DCC is a miracle. I've set the maximum speed on all of my locos since my wife thinks of model trains as another form of slot cars.

A mini-update to the Capital iron project; Jim M, who generously donated the newly revised complex, came over to reconfigure the previously amputated piping and share some of his talent for fabricating PVC pipe:

Armed with his miter cutting jig and a can of glue, Jim went to work measuring twice and cutting once:

By the end of the evening, he had re-routed the cupola downcomer to the repositioned gas cooler and washer units:

Here it is in place again, this time with some added supports to keep it from sagging:

It took some hunting through the local big box stores to find a can of Rustoleum Arm Green Camo paint, but with a little judicious masking and lots of masking tape, I managed to get that obnoxious looking white eliminated:

There are still a few "blemishes" that need to be taken care of as well as additional details, but Capital Iron is ready for the next op session.

Wow, you've been busy while I've been away. That looks awesome. It would appear you've called in the professionals to customize the complex. I can't wait to see it in person.
