The message below was directed to me, and I am forwarding it in case any NWHS members would be interested. As information, the Zoo Choo is a 16-inch gauge, passenger-carrying, streamlined train headed by a gasoline-engine-powered "diesel" locomotive whose track (which passes through a tunnel) circles the zoo located on the top of Mill Mountain in Roanoke. Please check the link in the original message to go to a Web site for the Zoo Choo.
Incidentally, I was chairman of the Zoo Choo committee when I was in the Roanoke Jaycees, and I enjoyed being in the Zoo on top of the Mountain with its cool breezes and spectacular views of the Roanoke Valley.

We (the zoo) are looking for volunteers to operate the Zoo Choo. I am not running it any more on a regular basis.
I would like to find a few retired, knowledgeable railroad men (or women) to agree on a regular schedule of operation. Please ask candidates to respond to michaela at mmzoo.org or to me FredMonroe at aol.com. (I volunteer to get everyone together.)
Please go to everleaf.com/zoochoo to see the web site I have developed about the Zoo Choo.
