This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during
the month of September 1998, as taken from the descriptions posted to
the club mailing list.
Since this was the first month of classes, there are very few entries
because the students had to get back on their academic routines. Work
was done on the layout, but there was no time to report it. The next
months are again fully reported.
- September 22
Jeff installed a replacement version of the doorbell that historically rang
when FOO was pushed. Four new "feather-touch" push buttons have been
installed around the layout to reinstate the traditional TMRC FOO BAR.
John McNamara worked on the roundhouse and installed the first piece of replacement
flooring. The question at hand is how to get it it to match the color of
the existing flooring. John Purbrick worked on a tester that will be used
with the switch control system.
