THA member’s and public run today from Samoa Cookhouse area

Well it wasn’t supposed to be much for public, but for members so we can iron things out. Never-less, we hauled many people. People were able to tour the roundhouse and other buildings. This was also to test, and refine our conductor, driver, and other skills.

I was the one who rode the speeder off the trailer on to the rails at the beginning, and end of the day, working the brake. I had my 1st certification run at 1pm, the scheduled time for our Harbor Commissioner Patrick Higgins. Though I heard later on, he was enjoying a tour of the buildings at the time. No matter, he was able to enthusiastically enjoy the next run. He would like to see “thousands of people” to enjoy this. Say what you like, but he is an active commissioner.

Only two people were within the right of way when were operating. One a bird watcher by the parking lot next to highway 255, didn’t even notice us until we hit the horn. The other parked his bike on the right of way, to retrieve a plastic barrel out of the bay. Overall not a big deal.

I was able to borrow a couple of radios from work. I still have to figure out a good PA system.

I’m happy, it was a good day, even made over $125.

The Medford live steamer 7 1/2″ gauge, dropped by, after hearing about us at Fort Humboldt. Wonder why we need to keep our parks open?

Next run is this coming Saturday 25 July 2009. Call 707-441-1960 on Friday to reserve a seat.
