It always takes a while to get started, but I resolved to get serious about this one a month after the Fest ended, and I'm now on a schedule where I'll write a chapter or two once or twice a week. At this rate the report should be done by mid-to-late September if I keep going at it. As of now, after writing an outline, I've completed the report's Intro, Planning, Getting to the Fest, Sunday, and Monday chapters. Consecutively I have us through both Silver Service trips, the various Florida layovers including all of Jacksonville, and up through the Cary layover. I worked a little on the Richmond layover, and did the Getting Home and Conclusion chapters at the end. I would say the report is about 36% finished at this point. Still to be done are the Piedmont, the time in Charlotte, the Carolinian Act 1, the trip from Richmond to Norfolk, the time in Norfolk, the Thruway bus, the trip from Newport News to the Washington area, the VRE trip to Fredericksburg, the platform dance while there, and then the Carolinian Act 2 where the Fest ended. I have already started to bug some of you for missed details, but printing out my back Twitter from that week and rereading our comments in this Forum regarding our daily progress reports during the event has already proven to be helpful as well.

Today I got through the Piedmont, all of Charlotte, the Carolinian Act 1, the train to Norfolk, and am currently working on Norfolk itself. I'd say approximately 70% is completed now. Everything is done consecutively for Sunday through Wednesday & part of Thursday, from the start about the Silver Meteor until Norfolk.

I am very impressed. You have more patience and stamina than I have. PS - I will text you if I get to see 92 tonight. :)

Friday's my report day, but I missed last week since I was travelling. I'd now estimate progress at about 75%. Today all of Norfolk was completed, as well as the Thruway bus trip. Maybe next Friday I'll finish through Train #66 and get into Friday's VRE trip and the Fredericksburg Shuffle.

The Fest report for Atlantic Coast RailFest 2013 has been republished here as separate chapters in a single thread as chosen by our poll. Enjoy reliving our journey as we visited Florida, Cary, Richmond, Norfolk, and the Washington, DC area on that summer's journey.
