Very Windy and Cold at RLS on the 27th, after two trips with no passengers in the
station OS closed the railroad down at 1:00PM. We only handled about
90+ passengers. We were ready however, Brook was sitting in the station at
9:30 AM, safety's lifting, brakeman on aboard but no public. It looked like
it could rain at any time but never did. Steam photos sure look good with the cold temp. -Rich Click Here to see the photos.

Yes, I know: The last Cron was SO late.. and this one SO early. But if you read through the pages of this Chronicle, you'll understand why I released it very early. Enjoy!! - Dave

• RLS Runday - April 13th and 3751 Update
This Sunday April 13th is our normal Run Day at RLS. Come out and enjoy the
day with steam and Friends. For those of you that use the I-215 make sure
to check road conditions as they are moving BNSF bridges during night time
hours between Iowa Avenue and Barton Road. Our resident Reporter Randy
Chase said the first weekend went well and the freeway was open a couple of
hours earlier than planned. HOWEVER this is a huge project and anything can
happen to change good luck to slow progress and delays. Tune your radio to
the traffic stations for best updates.
Operating Superintendant Jim Kreider looks forward to seeing all the members
out this weekend Eastbound Outside Loop operations. We do have a birthday
train harter so extra hands will be appreciated.
3751 UPDATE: Santa Fe 3751 will be operating to San Bernardino Station via
etrolink San Bernardino Line on Saturday April 12, 2014 leaving Los Angeles
Union tation at 10 AM arriving at San Bernardino Station at Noon. Sunday departure will be scheduled at 3:00 PM back to Los Angeles Union Station
arriving at 5:00 PM.
As the crew schedule now stands, RLS Member (and BNSF Engineer) Matt Casford
will be the Engineer for the 3751 trip. His brother Greg Casford, RLS
Member (and AMTRAK engineer ) is on the call board to be the fireman for
the trip. As with any historic steam locomotive program, anything and
everything can change in short notice. This is the latest information as of Tuesday.
