Coquihalla Valley Railway Session #25 Notes
Session Objectives included:
• Having a good time for all. • Test of New Nicola Yard operation with Nicola Turn – • Test of new CQVR Time Table #103 with three former extra trains now on the timetable. Dwell time for Fright trains at Brookmere reduced from ninety to sixty fast clock minutes • Test of new locomotives. • Test of extra occasional duties for the logger. Fast clock ratio 4:1 was adjusted to 6:1 about 1100 when the passenger trains begin their runs. Due to crewing considerations – Session Photography was rather erratic.
