First runs of any railroad are always fun. There is no expectation of success, no holding to timetable or getting cars to the right places. Hell, since nobody knows what’s happening, you can answer every misroute, every cornfield, every break from railroad tradition and operating practice with a shrug.
Hell, I don’t even know what TY&E stands for.
But we had some fun, not only running trains but also coming up with major overhaul improvements to the trackplan, crazy enough to make owner JW scream in mortal rage. Actually, outside of some yard recommendations (man, Youngstown is just one effed-up town) everything else looks doable.
And that’s the fun of some railroads, that of talking to the owner, seeing what he wants to do, and figuring out how it can happen.
Hopping we’ll see more TY&E updates in this blog as time moves on. It’s going to be a fun railroad to operate.
Once we know where TY is, and what E refers to.
