This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during
the month of February 2003, as taken from the descriptions posted to
the club mailing list.
- February 9
In recent weeks, John Purbrick created a computer-plotted version of
Malcolm Laughlin's pencil-drawn design for the new layout addition.
Yesterday evening, James Knight and Alvar Saenz-Otero used the computer
plot to select locations for support panels and built a third support
panel, as shown in the attached photo. (Alvar, Tom O'Reilly, and Howard
Gorin built #1; James and Thaddeus Stefanov-Wagner built #2).
In other work not photographically documented, Malcolm installed several
jack panels for walk-around control cabs;John McNamara worked on the
Digital Widgets building restoration; Andy Miller and Bill Onorato worked
on Berkmannville; John Purbrick worked on his automated car identification
system; Ed Drozd (Wednesday) worked on a new warehouse building; and Tom
worked on the System3 GUI.
