I'll retire before I will be the Engineer regularly instead of the Assistant Engineer. Each time I am assigned my own turn as Engineer, I wonder if it will be the last time.
Yesterday I was installed as the engineer on Turn LA28-01 (for those interested)
Today I stand to go out at dark thirty 1830.
Last trip up to Helena on the Coal train (no report yet) I ran Distributed power for the first time. But I wasn't qualified as the rules require a non crew member to do the qualifying.
