Conrail still exists as a legal entity, mostly it owns real estate and trackage.  (Turns out a college classmate of mine is CEO.)

Fasting blood test, followed by McBreakfast :-)  After a trip to the post office, back to the train room for some more orogeny.

Bob how old is that picture I didn't think Conrail was in service anymore????

I don't recall exactly when I took it but my best guess would be late 70's/early 80's so it's about 40 years old give or take a few.  :P

Mornin' all....

I've been getting in a lot of late night bench time.  The phone doesn't ring and it's just quiet.

I have been spending a lot of time working at the regional stuff of the PNR of the NMRA.  I have been VP for several years and we are trying to keep modelers engaged at the region and division levels.  Mostly zoom stuff and Achievement Program activities.  We in the west call it Aggressive Pursuit.  We have invented a distance evaluation process that is working really well.

I am also on the PNR convention committee this year as the 3rd Division is hosting it here in southern Idaho.  We are doing it virtually so there are a lot of new bases to be tagged.

But I'm getting my bench time in.

see ya

I'm only paranoid because everyone is out to get me.
