Last night, my friend Jeff Young came over for an operating session, followed by dinner.
Jeff and I worked together earlier this year on a six-espiode series for Trainmasters TV called Fired Up! – and you can read more about that by clicking on the image, below:
Jeff is a long-time live steam enthusiast, but he still enjoys running on layouts in the smaller scales, too. We ran a freight extra behind CNR 10-wheeler 1532 and the layout performed flawlessly. I love it when the layout does that.
Afterwards, we headed up to The Caledonian, a terrific local pub that’s wonderfully Scottish – from its hospitality to its food to its excellent selection of single malts. Jeff and I were like-minded about dinner, each ordering the smoked salmon appetizer and the lamb shank special, and finishing with some single malts – including a very agreeable 12-year-old Strathisla.
We agreed that the operating session was a lot of fun, the food was great, and that we really need to do another season of Fired Up! All in all, a very agreeable evening!
Thanks for coming over, Jeff – see you again soon!
