Wanted to give you dates the OWNRy will be operating in "Fun Run" mode For August and September. Please 

Normal operations times are 5-7:30 PM. There is still enough daylight for longer drives so If we get any "out of town" guests from Sacramento, Chico and/or bay area, we could begin earlier.  just let me know.

There are some breaks in the weeks due to travel plans AND we will move to Tuesdays for the fall beginning late August
Here are the dates for your planning purposes.  I know the regulars are having a lot of fun and the layout is running well.

OWNRy Fun Runs

the OWNRy hosts 2 full formal operating sessions per year during the spring and fall with a full complement of 32 trains.  however, the rest of the year is for "fun runs".  these could be as little as the owner (me) running a train around the layout to test something or perform some yard switching.  it could mean a couple of my regulars (see photo) coming over 2-3 times per month for a couple of hours and we run some trains and do some switching according to the schedule of trains or whatever the train superintendent sees is needed.  Occasionally someone will contact me and ask to come visit the layout.  Often, in this case, I will set up a "fun run" of 2-3 hours duration where we run some of the trains.  Mainline authority is ABS signals with "mother may I" and operate otherwise according to the rules of the road.  the atmosphere is relaxed and provides a good venue for learning.  we have a couple of new boomers who have begun to join us.

Let me know if/when you plan to be in my area and we will schedule a fun run.
