RR trip report - abandonment?

Roma Termini




Railroad content: I am called for a Coal Train today with no DP. I still have not gotten DP qualified. I used to run slaves back when in Alliance but just a few times and it isn't really the same thing.

I have been awarded my own turn... that is to say I am the Engineer on a new turn (LA27) and not the assistant Engineer with my old working partner Jack. A bit more money, I hope he doesn't feel I abandoned him but maybe he will enjoy the break from me!

I was on vacation last week, I enjoyed just hanging around the house. I am already planning some vacation trips. I realize I am going to have to shorten this one -> http://BearSTOC.com/

It has turned very cold.. it never got above zero yesterday. 19 today and the wind is blowing. Wish us luck.

Nice, Michael!

So what does DP stand for?

DP = distributed power... the single unit on the rear controlled by the head end
