Flatonia Fall Rail party and Pavilion went great this fall for watching trains until the rain arrived in the afternoon. For the most part of the day we saw quite a bit of trains in all 4 directions. Off the Cuero Sub 6 southbound and 3 northbound. For the Glidden Sub it was non stop east and westbound traffic. All in all we most have seen about 18 trains. It was great see fellow rail fans that made the trip from San Antonio, Austin, and the Houston area. Hope to see you'll again in April. Special Thanks to Mr. Tommy for making this Party possible for all of us.

Good seeing you there Joe. I spent more time with video. I think this time there were fewer people attending (35 all together) but the most trains for a get together.

Thanks for all the great commons guys. I had a lot of fun out there. Jeff it was good to see you too sir. Hope everyone had a safe drive back home. I think maybe the reason we didn't have a big crowed is because different rail events on the same day. As for the rail the traffic it was awesome.:cool: Hope to see everyone again in April.
