VORA turned two years old this week and we celebrated with an excellent operating session over the BNSF Powder River route set in modern day.

Both DS kept 18 trains moving from Alliance, NE to Gillette, WY in the 11 hour session. Every train was accurate on car count and motive power with an exact BNSF line up from the actual route. Our goal as always is to recreate a real day on the railroad.

VORA is also holding a live open Q&A session on 7/17 at 8 pm for anyone who wants to learn more about how to run in our prototype ops sessions. To join the Q&A send me a PM here at this forum and I will get you the details you need.

There are also a few spaces left in our Intro Events this week where you learn the rules of the road and earn your way into the cab. Again a simple PM gets you there.

Thanks for reading,
