Ah, the smell of spring is in the air and I would guess Garden Railroaders are just itching to get out and start prepping the ROW for operations! I'd wait a bit myself, as the Tigers opener was canceled due to the weather yesterday. Really? I remember years when fans were huddled in the stands wearing parkas and drinking hot chocolate (or SOMETHING to warm them).

Along with Spring comes spring cleaning, and although the wife means the basement, I have made some long desired strides forward in cleaning up the web site. Although there is still some tweaking to be done, the home page is now updated to a clean version of the latest HTML standard, which will allow easier changes as well as new features, including making it more device friendly. I hope to have it in place shortly, after I get the November show info updated.

Sad to note the passing of John Jamison, a long time member of the GVRR family this past month. John had suffered from rather poor health the past few years; may he now rest in peace.

Happy Railroading!
