What is 'operation'?

I found the following wise words on "operations" on Bob Batson's Texas Central RR website. 

"Simply defined, "operations" is running the trains on your layout in a way to simulate prototype railroading. This simulation can take any degree of complexity, depending on the abilities and desires of the designer. The size of the layout will also effect the complexity of the operations, but it is not necessary to have a large layout to run trains like the prototype."

"Designing a layout to simulate railroad operations may not be everyone's goal, but it has worked for me, and I encourage you to at least give a serious look at it."

I could not have put it better myself.
