  • In Dave Husman’s Aug 16 presentation here on Trackage Rights, he touched briefly on Reciprocal Switching and there was a request to hear some additional information about that prototype subject; Chuck Laggan is going to do present on that topic during the session. Chuck has recently retired from a 50 year railroad career - mostly with Erie Lackawanna and Conrail and the last 21 years in the short line arena with Arkansas Midland RR.  He worked in many departments during his career including Operations, Industrial Engineering and Sales and Marketing.
  • Seth Neumann will be presenting on his Union Pacific Oakland Sub railroad. The layout focuses on operations in spring 1999 on the Oakland Sub from Milpitas Ca to Radum (East Pleasanton) and supports the New United Motor Manufacturing Inc (NUMMI - GM/Toyota Joint Venture) plant at Warm Springs.  The layout models prototypical operations and features 2 locals that run the length of the layout, a job which switches the NUMMI plant, A local which services the San Francisco Peninsula, the Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) commuter line and through trains which do block swaps at Milpitas Yard.
