Essex Belt Lines – First operations Day
The EBL team held the first formal operations session at the June meet. The team used the recently commissioned CTC signalling system, a full suite of prototype style train order paperwork to authorise movements and for some trains car cards and waybills to direct the movement of individual rail vehicles.
This was a challenging but enjoyable day. it did highlight some development needs to help us achieve the best from the layout, these will be developed as we run more operations sessions.
