The newly constructed "Karnes Kitchen Ltd." bakery is ready for the upcoming operating session on February 10. The track in Grafton is ballasted and scenery is in place. The building in the background on the left is the Mason and Risch piano factory (click on the photo to enlarge).

The Carleton Railway is preparing for the resumption of regularly scheduled operating sessions. A new timetable should result in more efficient movement of trains, and the addition of the Grafton spur adds four major industries. A total of 14 trains (6 passenger, 8 freight) are scheduled to move across the Avondale and Northampton Subdivisions during each 3-hour session.

2012 operating sessions are scheduled on the following evenings (7 p.m.):

Friday, February 10
Thursday, March 1
Friday, May 4
Friday, May 25
Friday, June 15

Both new and experienced crew members are welcome! Email me ( for details and directions.
