Does Miles know he's not going to get the glove or timetables back?

Great episode guys!  It would be great to have a redux with modern terminology too.

Great show. Next episode show how to use hand signals on a layout, in operation settings.

Very cool. Understanding the signals really helps me understand how the prototype railroad operates and much of it is tranferable to my railroad.

Not only is the video instructional but it's fun to watch as well. A very fast 29 minutes. Thanks guys.  

That was a fun diversion and interesting.  Lionel...when do we get to see your completed choreography for your Signal Pants dance?
