This was the first session with the upper staging yard active.
A few problems with the CTC panel were found and most of them have been fixed. During this, I discovered that I needed to rework significant portions of the panel, so this week I have spent many hours renaming levers, indicators, logix and the rest.
Attendees as follows:
Doug B - Dispatcher
Scott - Asst Dispatcher and Staging Manager
Dick - Yard Master
Wayland M - Asst Yard Master and photog
Keith P - Road Crew
Dan M - Road Crew
Keith S - Road Crew
Don W - Road Crew
The railroad ran fairly well, even after about a year long layoff.
