Member 42 and other railroad activities!

Jack had his little BNSF loco doing switching duties at Bakersville today. Jack seems to like the challenge
of switching cars into different locations on the layout. Atta Boy Jack!
Jesse has his BN GP15 doing a local job while Steve Weso had a mainline freight moving a string
of auto racks to distant customers.
Our youngest non-member Eliam had this GN steamer pulling several passenger cars on the Green Branch
as a celebration of railfans made it desirable to pull off this unique event.
Rodney has been working on the trolley line and I am happy to see that it is working again with a
little labor and love to make it come alive again. Thanks Rodney, he is another retired railroader
that has joined the Evergreen club. That makes 7 ex-railroaders part of our group.
Can you see the locomotives on the far side of the aisle? They are 2 Great Northern F units pulling
90 ore cars jut like they do today in the ore fields of Minnesota. The cars are short because the ore
is so heavy they can't make them much bigger. Doug N. is the owner. The ore is needed to make steel.
Remember member 42..... its Scott Davis, a retired Army soldier that has gotten back into the hobby
and joined our club. We once were 12 members strong....now we are 42 members! Welcome Scott.
