Hello again:

Our next operating session is on 10/29 on the CSX Kingsport Sub set on May 5, 2011. We will be running 18 trains from that day including actual lashups and car counts. Several trains will carry two man crews as there is work to do enroute requiring a conductor.

Also we will have live MOW on the route in this session and considering it is a single track that should be a lot fun. So be ready for anything. Lots of meets on the schedule too.

We are running from 1pm to 11 pm for this session.

Special Note: All RW and TRS owners: We have identified the first routes that we will be running when we introduce prototype operating sessions for these sims in November and December. In order to run in these sessions, you must complete our Intro Event workshops on November 3rd and 6th. These will be followed by Mini session for new road crews for MSTS on November 7th and 9th and RW tentatively set for November 14th and 16th and TRS on November 28th and 30th. This will be the last chance to qualify this year! Next Intro Sessions will be in February 2012 as we will be busy qualifying new dispatchers, yardmasters and conductors. So if you want to learn real prototype operations, now is the time to stand up and be counted.

To reserve a space in the Intro Events and Mini Operating Sessions, send me a PM here and I will give you details on how to reserve a seat in the Intro Events. Space is limited and once the seats are gone that will be it until the spring. If you have any questions, send those to me as well. Always happy to answer any questions you may have.
