  1. Looking forward to the Fall Open House. I had a chance to operate during Rails by the Bay. was wondering (maybe suggesting) if there are any switching operations problems on the SVL that might be accessed by an overhead camera to facilitate operations beyond running trains around the fantastic SVL layout.

    • We have been working on that ability though we have not had the man power recently to devote a onsite brakeman to that duty. We have a engine with remote couplers on that we hope to press into service sometime. This would require less help, we just need to find a switching puzzle area that will work for single car moves. It might work for train building though.
