Several weeks ago the JRD had a chance to hear Steve King on how dispatch a railroad and a model railroad. As I meet with folks and reflect on that meeting folks continue to say how much they enjoyed the meet. Operations is a growing part of the hobby that will inform much of the layout building and design in future years. It is not the be all and end all of the hobby it is part of what we will become in future years. Our hobby is one of niches and overlapping interests. This will be one of them. Others including structures, scenery, electronics, signals, locomotives, cars and track may interest you more than operations. As they say 'it is all good' so find your speciality.
