  • The Night Before Christmas

    'Twas the Night before Christmas, and all through the yard,
    Not a whistle was blowing, not a steam plume stirred.
    The engines, all silent, in slumber did sleep,
    While visions of passengers danced in their dreams.

    The rails, silver gleamed in the pale moon's light,
    As signals stood frozen, no red to ignite.
    No coal clattered down, no pistons did churn,
    Only soft winter snowflakes softly did turn.

    On the roundhouse roof, perched high with a grin,
    A lone Santa conductor, his work nearly din.
    He checked his dispatch list,eyes bright as the stars,
    Delivering dreams aboard freight and boxcars.

    For every train fan, a gift he'd bestow,
    New routes to explore, where rivers would flow.
    Scenic vistas unfurled, mountains to climb,
    Through tunnels and towns, on the wings of time.

    For the engineer's son, a starter set bright,
    With Thomas and Percy, chugging in the night.
    For the sim veteran, a route complex and grand,
    With signals to master, and switching lists at hand.

    A Pullman for one, a horn for another,
    A gleaming new GEVO, for sister and brother.
    For history buffs, a steam engine so grand,
    Whispering memories through a forgotten land.

    Each gift wrapped with care, in ribbons of code,
    Ready to download, as Santa rode.
    With a whistle so cheery, and a wave of his hand,
    He spread joy on the rails, across the whole land.

    So when morning arrives, and the sun peeks in bright,
    TrainSim fans awake to a magical sight.
    Their dreams come to life, on screens warm and aglow,
    The perfect Christmas, where train spirits flow.

    So raise a hot cocoa, a toast to the night,
    When Santa on Rails brought pure TrainSim delight.
    Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good run,
    May your engines forever, under bright stars, gleam and hum!

    And just like that, NFL football is over for the season. Those of you who don't follow football closely may not understand the emptiness that sets in following the end of the regular season (especially for those whose teams don't make the playoffs), but for me, watching football is a block on the weekend where I am guaranteed to get mostly uninterrupted time to concentrate on programming fixes and other things Trainsim related because our household watches a lot of football... Congrats to the ...

    I'd say we are off to a very good start to the year... The last few years, I've been out of meaningful NFL football to watch by the first week of January, and able to spend more time doing other things. This year, my Packers shocked the world and knocked out the #2 Dallas Cowboys, making it to the Divisional Round officially as the youngest average age team in NFL history and the first #7 seed to advance to the Divisional Round... Unfortunately, this past weekend they lost a close game to the...

    Where has the time gone? We're just a week out from Christmas, and a fortnight from the New Year... The month started out with some bad news regarding one of our early members and long-time moderator on the site... Our friend Dave Edwards passed away on December 7th. He'd been battling health issues for the last few years, and while things were looking better over the past couple months, he took a sudden turn for the worse. There's a thread in the "We Remember" forum for those looking for more de...
