Timetable & Train Order Operation
By Steve King
This 3 ½ hour class will teach the basic timetable and train order operating rules used by prototype railroads to control the operation of trains into the 1960's. The class will cover the key operating rules and then use those rules to simulate operation on a railroad. Attendees will also copy a train order and prepare a clearance form. Bring a pen or pencil, your thinking cap, and step back into the pre-CTC and pre-Track Warrant Control days of railroading.
Bio: Steve has been a model railroader for over 60 years. He grew up in Dayton (OH) with the opportunity to operate on the many great railroads of the time. He was an operator and train dispatcher for the B&O and CB&Q in the early 1960’s before venturing off into other transportation pursuits, including almost twenty years in Chicago with United Airlines. Steve’s model interest has always been focusd on operation and over the past 30-plus years on Timetable & Train Order operations. He co-authored the Operation SIG TT&TO book, “19 East, Copy Three” and has authored numerous articles on the subject.
The James River Division's purpose is to share the fun and excitement of model railroading with modelers in Central and Southside Virginia.
