I thought I'd post a few pics from today's ARG meet. Glenn and his wife were our gracious hosts this month and did a great job, as always. We ran an operating session on Glenn's awesome N scale RR, the WC&W. We were each assigned our jobs and off we went... I'm just glad the guy switching the steel mill really knew his stuff and prevented any log jams there...;)

The mad scientist of switching, er, I mean the dispatcher at work in the west staging yard. Glenn, aka wcwbrasshat.

Rex you look a tad worried about that last picture there. Nice face, and great shots from the meet, looking good. I'm trying to hook up with people in the San Diego area to run trains...

A shot of the steel mill confusion captured for eternity. At least the plant manager has a few empties for byproducts now. ;)

Ha!Ha! Yeah, Eric has a talent for catching you with your mouth full. But with the delicious food, I guess he couldn't capture the moment any other way. I don't know what Glenn's wife spiced up those hamburgers with, but they were outstanding 3/4 pounders. Yum! Yum! :D

My "N" scale dexterity had improved considerably since the last time we met at Glenn's. I didn't knock over any yards and my ability to rerail cars was much better by only taking 3 minutes instead of 10. I just wish that I hadn't ran my first train off into the bookcase below:eek: :eek: :D.

Lots of fun and laughs that I will always remember. (I just hope Glenn will reconsider my employment. Seems I was always 3 hours behind schedule:rolleyes: )
EDIT: I need to add that my empoyment was not the only one in question. There was a rumor that Grande man was demoted from Steel Mill Yardmaster to Rail Maintenance, 3d class. Hehehehe!:p

Rex, I don't think that was the problem! Seems the mill operators kept holding all the empty hoppers!:eek:

I believe that its THEIR employment that's in question!:rolleyes:

All I know is that the production numbers were a little off at the mill yesterday. The plant manager mentioned a "log jam" at the interchange yard...:D
