The latest Penn Central Car Movement series, #20, is in full swing on the N.Y.C.T.L. P.C.C.M. #20 originated on Ralph V's excellent home layout known as the Kings Port Division. For those unfamiliar the K.P.D. and N.Y.C.T.L. have been involved in 'virtual ops' since February 1st where we run joint or consecutive ops sessions using similar rolling stock and at time engines even though our train layouts are separated by a thousand miles and the equipment involved never leaves our basements.
To keep the virtual ops manageable Ralph and I break the ops down into segments so we can easily document and follow the action on each others layouts via photo heavy emails. This blog entry will cover several of these segments and we'll conclude the 20 series with the next blog entry later in the week.

and here for the transition from the K.P.D. to the N.Y.C.T.L.
Now that you're up to date the next Penn Central Car Movements will make a little more sense.
