On Monday operations continued as before. In the morning I fixed a leaking union under the 308 and rechecked brake operation, and then we ran all day. Dan Buck was the motorman, I was the conductor, and Chris was the trainman. Everything went smoothly, and we were able to keep to a consistent schedule with four trains on the main line. The steam train runs on the hour, the Zephyr on the half-hour, and electric cars at :15 and :45. Plus there was a half-hourly shuttle from 50th Avenue to Schmidt siding with air-conditioned L cars, and two or three streetcars, including the open car, on the loop. That's not unusual for a busy weekend, but nobody else in this business can do anything approaching that!

We were too busy for much picture-taking, but it was very rewarding.
And now we're planning ahead for Showcase Weekend, dba Members' Day, in two weeks! Don't miss it!
