Great Meeting Last Saturday seeing Shannon Crabtree’s Virginia Midland

 The James River Division had a great meeting last Saturday virtually touring Shannon Crabtree’s Virginia Midland.  This 1980s prototype freelance short line goes from Fredericksburg to Orange long after the original line disappeared from the railroad scene.  Shannon has packed a large amount of operation into his layout. The four videos elicited quite a number of questions and comments. If you missed the meeting Shannon has posted the first video to You Tube https://youtu.be/YjMtwt1bRdQ  Please consider subscribing to Shannon’s feed on You Tube
