Let's go!

Now that you have seen the

layout, it's time to have some

fun running trains. What

follows is a series of

operating scenarios that will

give you an idea of how the

layout was operated in a

typical operating session.

It was customary to have one person dispatching, one operating the

yard at Revelstoke, one at Arrowhead loading and unloading the

barge, and four to six operating trains through the layout. Engineers

and the dispatcher were in communication via radios.

Since you have only you, operations that would otherwise be

progressing simultaneously, by necessity have to be carried out in

sequence.
