Returned from Houston via the Bay Bridge and Tunnel last Wednesday. Trackage along 13 is definitely 3rd class. Took note of several formerly RR served buildings.

Sure like your work.

Dave. Really like the weathering on your boxcars. Super realistic.

Also you water scenes look fabulous. Have an eerie feeling to them with those gloomy skies.
I really like it.

As always, I appreciate the comments and those of you who've taken time to view my posts.

Bill, I miss the Eastern Shore and hope to visit sometime soon.

I've been experimenting with my operating plan. Have decided that business supports a 3-day a week schedule with the occasional extra. The track plan and chart below are my first attempts at an operating schedule. I tried the Monday run and the pictures below show the 2 car set out for CSX pickup. (on the Chart "P" = pick-up, "D" = drop-off")

I'll be experimenting with the rest of the days but right now don't have enough cars to support the entire scheme.

Will continue detailing and ordering some parts to detail my engine I have a Broadway Limited CSX AC6000CW on order that is supposed to become available late March/early April. I'm using an Atlas GP-38 which I have mixed feelings about since I've installed a sound card. Sometimes it runs great, other times erratic, but I intend to detail it and paint it with Eastern Shore RR livery. The CSX engine will bring cars into and off of the rr as part of exchange operations.

Continuing on with testing the operating scheme. Some pics from the session. Probably won't post a lot more pics unless something changes as it seems they're getting a bit repetitious.

I ran my first formal operating session using the switch cards and schedule I'd previously posted. I ran the Wednesday consists which had 4 cars for delivery and four for pick-up with 3 facing switch moves. Took me about 35 minutes to complete everything.

Below is the outbound consist on the trestle awaiting CSX pick-up and former CONRAIL GP-38 3072 cooling down at the end of the day.

Congrats on your first operating session, Dave!

Bonnie and I drove up the DelMarVa again Friday & Saturday. There are still signs of rail activity on the Bay Coast RR.

When I drove through Dagsboro the other day they had dropped a propane tanker behind the Farmers Supply where they have a large storage tank. You might want to add one to your Co-op for additional variety.
