February '08
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of February 2008, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
February 16

The theme for this week is PROGRESS.
There was much Progress in East Berkmannville, pressed ahead by Adam, Quentin and David L. "Gentlemen, shall Progress occur here?" Adam says there are lots of pictures in existence showing him bending down to work on something. So we rearranged gravity to let him stay upright. Progress promotes paraphernalia's proliferation.
Sometimes Progress is achieved by lone efforts. And sometimes it requires a team, not forgetting the one who provides financing, by consumption of products of the Coca-Cola Corporation.
David L made Progress of an electrical variety on the Digital Widgets high-rise wing, using electroluminescent wire. No, the second picture isn't very good, but the lighting conditions were difficult. Less spectacular but not to be forgotten, John P finished the track on the mill siding and the little temporary (ha ha) bridge in Berkmannville.

Yet still the level of Progress was insufficient! There was an investigation of a high-powered (7.2 kilowatt was mentioned) multi-channel light dimmer. Keep the fire extinguisher handy, guys.

The inspection team considers it very important to note that the unit has a CINCH JONES connector.

Adam says, "Now we're really achieving something--four steam locos in the roundhouse!"
Here he is operating one of them in F-yard.
