APN in Ops Session on the Great Great Northern
Don Bozman hosts APN Operating Sessions on his fantastic layout
In April, 2006 and again in April, 2007, APN members returned to Don Bozman's home for an operation session on his famous "Great" Great Northern layout. In addition to the pleasure of operating on such a quality layout, and being treated so well by such gracious hosts, there was historical significance, too, as the very first operating session on this same layout ... was manned by members of APN!  Below are a couple of slide shows, one each for 2006 and 2007
