Ops Session Preparation on the MCIS
Alas, it was not in the cards for me to be able to participate tomorrow; however, I was able to assist with staging on the Michigan Interstate today.
After several operating sessions Greg decided to migrate to a card-card system to assist operators with the work events at Bay City Yard and On-Line. He decided to use clear baseball card holders, each labeled on top for a specific railcar. Printed destination cards slide into the clear holders completing the Car Card.
Under the letter code is additional information including secondary destination information such as industry name or track number, load/empty status and even Haz-Mat notation.
We built several trains in Bay City yard, repaired several cars, filled and aligned the car cards, and then backed the trains into one of the two staging yards. I expect the operators tomorrow will have an excellent time operating on the Michigan Interstate! Be sure to check on the Michigan Interstate Blog button below for updates!
