Our friend Tom Marshall  won't be having any more "lousy days."  When i spoke to him in a Huntington hospital  this morning, he said he felt lousy. He passed away this afternoon.

During the years I knew him, he was always eager to share his vast knowledge about the Virginian Railway.

It's time for a subtle reminder about Virginian Crazies weekend this year.  We are set up at the lodge in Twin Falls for September 28-30.  About half of us will arrive on Thursday the 27th.  The usual schedule is Brainstorming (and planning for the next day's railfanning)over dinner Thursday evening; railfanning Friday during the day.  Friday evening is a 15 minute business meeting after dinner, followed by seminars/clinics/more brainstorming on into the night.  Saturday is railfanning, with more seminars, etc. Saturday evening.  

Our advance team is investigating if there are organized activities that weekend that we might want to participate in; last year was unusual in that we were invited to a presentation of a great model of the Page enginehouse (by our own Tom "Saltwater" Salmon)to the museum, and Wyoming County days in Mullens.  

Because we had a number of people who had expressed an interest in the Glen Rogers Branch who couldn't make it last year, we might do it again this year.  Otherwise we're open.  One year a bunch went to Cass, and one year a bunch went to Thurmond.  And, reminder, since it's all POV, people can go pretty much where they want to.  

Another reminder: the cost is $-0-.  But do call the Twin Falls Lodge directly to get "our" rate for that weekend.

If you're interested in the Virginian, history and/or modeling, you'll almost certainly enjoy the weekend.
