I was sad to read today that Joliet's Union Station will be closing down in a week or so after being open for 102 years. Evidently, they constructed a new Metra station east of the Ex-AT&SF / Ex-GM&O crossing at UD Tower. I'm glad I got a chance to visit it Summer 2012.
Less than two weeks until my next Op Session. Oh, great news! I have four core operators and found out one and then two wasn't going to be able to attend. October is too busy so I was going to roll with a light crew. I found out tonight that one of the guys will be able to attend now. So, I will have a crew of four that should work out well. Very good news!
Now, I need to work on my To Do list.
Tonight, I worked on static grass in Peru and Utica with my daughter's help. I used Silflor Autumn 4mm grass over here vs the 6mm grass over in South Ottawa.
