Central Indiana & Ohio RR
Well, the CIOR was on the NMRA's Midwest Region Convention open house tour.
We had somewhere in the ballpark of 80-100 people in the 5 hours, a nice steady stream of people.
We ran 89 trains in that time period and were able to break in the new dispatcher panel. The panel worked great and we had NO issues to report.
We operated 89 trains in 5 hours and had one derailment due to a broken Kadee coupler. Was a first for all of us to see.

Had a great time and got to put alot of "faces to names" so to speak.
