Clinic presented at Pacific Southwest Region / NMRA Meeting, September '04

You've built a layout and you're ready to start operating trains in a realistic manner. But which trains? In what order? This clinic describes straightforward steps to creating a successful plan for operations, using real examples from both freelanced and prototypical layouts. We'll focus on three key goals: creating a unique personality for each train and operating role, developing the interaction of trains and operators, and striking the balance that makes for smooth op sessions. We'll also see how operations can (and should!) begin well before the layout's finished and explore ways to "phase in" operating sophistication over time.
