Tuesday night at the Huff and Puff

The railroad was a busy place with visitors watching as crews worked through traffic jams. We may need a dispatcher to sort things out, or at least use the train orders. I think we could have each freight do most of its switching in one town and only switch a couple of other towns. An example would be an oil train switching Springbank and Herons Landing with one pickup at Valleyview.  Another idea would be to have Lincoln switched by west bound freights only as most of the turnouts favour west bound traffic, the Miller interchange could be switched by east bound freights. I also think Wellington should be switched with the other towns. Next Tuesday is work night, 2 turnouts to be put in and lots of wiring to install the new Quad unit.
