My Ops Sessions on 6th
This was the first run of session 7 and Don, Dennis, Hugh, Peter J, Peter R and Wayne joined me. For the first time things went reasonably well until I relased a train into the system about 20 minutes early.... I was pleased with the outcome and I believe we all had some fun without too much frustration.
Ops Sessions at Wayne's
I was invited to two sessions this month however due to medical and other commitmenst I could not attend either.
Alan, Des, Don and Ross joined Wayne. I decided not to attend as I had only been home a few days. Don set me some phots taken diring the session.
Here is a short video
Dennis, Des, Peter J and Ross joined Wayne. Thanks to Peter J for taking a few photos.
Ops Sessions at Chris's
I was invited but it clashed with the airconditioner technician coming to service our three split systems and daignose a problem with the main unit. Don, Peter S, Ross & Rosslyn joined Chris. Don held a impromptu clinic on consisting using a Roco MultiMaus using CV19 consisting (same process for Lenz or Fleischmann).
Select Loco for consisting > (Ensure POM mode) CV Modify > 19 > "Consist Address" then back to Loco then select next Loco and repeat steps.
