This hobby is fun, right? I've had to keep reminding myself of that over the past six weeks or so as I have dealt with a short -- well, three shorts, it seems.

I actually took a vacation day to focus on the issue, and it took a good chunk of the day. Not fully resolved, but I'm closing in.

My system has a DCS100 command station and two DB100 boosters. All had worked fine, then one week before my PRRT&HS open house in May, and things went south. The system would not come online. I had only been working on scenery, and it didn't make sense. I kept disconnecting pieces of the system to "divide and conquer". I got down to just the command station, with no LocoNet, and still no joy!

The Bethlehem Steel Company owned a large quarry at Naginey on the Milroy Secondary outside of Lewistown, Pa. The quarry was rail-served until Hurricane Agnes destroyed much of the line in 1972 and it proved too expensive to repair.

Several years ago a friend provided me with several batches of waybills taken from the Burnham freight station when it was taken out of service. The Burnham station processed the waybills for Naginey shipments further east on the line. Two of the batches of waybills were specific to Naginey.
