We have been having operating sessions on my layout now for over 10 years. We have a dedicated group of model railroaders who are very interested in prototype operations and bringing that to model railroading. Ironically, most of the crew are active professional railroaders working for CSX and the ESPN. We have implemented a card system, spearheaded by Dave Sommers. A train schedule has been established and is based on the real schedule that CSX runs today on the Philadelphia Subdivision. Some pictures from previous operating sessions are below.
