OpsLog – TBL – 1/21/2024

short entry for a short session – our control problems continue on the Tuscarora Branch Line, which means I can’t trust it to operate in any manner and so I can’t invite people to drive hundreds of miles for a dud session. I only hope that Steve the engineering guy comes up with a solution.

God, but I hate this constant on again / off again failure.

My friend Greg came over to run with me (hey, we had movie-night lined up after, so not a total loss). We only managed to run half a session before the constant failures made us quit (my call – Greg actually wanted to keep going). As I was running the tower, it was total frustration to set up a clever move, only to have the electronics go berserk (again and again). Sigh.

Greg was an early supporter of this effort in microlayouts and was the first to run a multi-person session with me. Yesterday he was on local detail and ran brilliantly (he got the job done). I really appreciated his support in this very difficult session.

The search for a solution continues…
