      Thanks Pete...

       

      EVWR is a shortline that runs thru my town..  EVWR = Evansville Western Railroad..    Basically, it's a 124 mile long line from Evansville, Indiana to Okawville, Illinois..

      On this end of the line, it basically works the Ag Elevators..

      EVWR does have a website, if you are interested..

      Thanks Joe...

      Ken usually comes out in Oct, along with a few others..

      Rooster's not allowed more than 500 feet from home....  

       

      hehehe   Besides, if he comes here, all he'll do is ask for 20 dollars...

      Joe, with those chicken eyes, for him it's like looking thru a pin hole in a cardboard box....

      Chris, always...   Track has no power, so loco's need to be battery powered or ""Controlled"" live steam...

      They will be battery / RC.   Maybe next year I can bring my SD40Ns to one of your sessions.  You are only about 8 hours if I take the scenic route.

      Chris. more than welcome...  I usually post the Ops schedule here about January for the year...

       

      Also, my freight cars are body mounted Kadee couplers, at Kadee's gauge height..  I do have some "'transition cars"", but those are truck mounts..
