Updated date of the open houses and other events on the Schedule page. Other updates on other pages including the new N scale layout dimensions. We have updated the running distance of the layout, for the first time since the added the newest section to the original layout. We figure we have 79 scale miles of N scale layout and it can stake over 1 hour to run all the way around it a scale speed. We’ve replaced the front entrance stairs and sidewalk and reshingled the front patio canopy.

Again, the webmaster wishes to apologize for lack of recent updates to the web site. (I did finally get around to updating all the copyright statements). Some beautiful new scenery has been added to the recent additions on the N scale layout. As I said in the fall there have been a lot of major changes in our layouts in the last year. We hope to see you at our open houses.

Contrary to lack of updates listed here in the web site, there have been a lot of major changes in our layouts. If you haven’t attended our open houses in recent years, you will barely recognize the club. Upstairs, we have reorganized the kitchen and common area, and have vastly expanded the N-scale layout. There is lots of new construction, and for those who want to see how trackwork and benchwork is built, now is the perfect time to visit. New dates have been added to our calendar. In particular, note that we have changed the dates for our Fall Open Houses to be a month earlier than usual. .

The Webmaster must juggle maintaining this site with his day job, and his day job usually wins.

New dates have been added to our calendar. In particular, note that (for the first time in recent memory) our Fall Open Houses will both occur on December Sundays. This is to accommodate the Christmas Train Show that falls this year on the last weekend of November.

We have also been making a lot of updates to our N Scale layout. I hope to gets some photos of these changes uploaded to the web site in the near future (sorry the photos are not there yet.

Our fall and our winter open house season is over, and it was a roaring success. Thank you all for coming out and supporting us. As you may appreciate, during the our show season, construction halts, everything gets cleaned up ready for you, the public, to visit. After a number of months we are ready to get the saws, and soldering irons back out. But before we start, we hosted a couple of Scout groups. We had local Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Venturers visit us in the last few weeks.
