Default Melanie (Railroads 1996-1998?)

I use to know a Melanie that worked as a conductor on the railroad and loved soccer. Has anyone seen or heard from her?

She went to Trinity High School and was once a red tag for the Railroad conductors.....

I miss crusing on the ol' trains! I think it is such as same that Six Flags did away with the conductors. The conductors made it more personable, entertained the guests waiting at the station, and keep an eye out for saftey. Ah... the good ol' days!

Hrm... that's not sounding familiar. I was on the engine mainly working weekends in the summer/fall of '96, so I wasn't around much.

Melanie and I still stay in contact. In fact we went to the movies yesterday. She got a teaching degree.

I miss the old gang on railroad. I remember after the park was shut down we would go out to eat after work and just hang out. Those were some fun days.

Those were the days... Sanding conductors out in tunnel or just smoking them out...Open the injector when the train whet over mine train...Getting to yell at the guest when they ran through the crossing. I have got a chance to run the train while it was snowing, however the parked closed early that day.
