December '09
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of December 2009, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
December 9

A simple attempt to use the Club's venerable Pink Elephant to clean up some loose scenic material led to a teardown of the said Elephant, and replacement of the on/off switch and the power cord.
The opportunity was taken to add a grounding conenction ("But generations before us have used this thing without getting electrocuted...")
Even the longest tail comes to an end.


December 19

Our member in exile David Lambeth has sent a couple of shipments of useful items. Here's the first of his cast plastic dwarf signals. This was installed in F-yard to replace a signal that was demolished during scenery work.
Genya is admiring a photo-etched sheet of chainlink fencing material from David's latest shipment.
The Great Wall is finished! It runs along the front of F-yard for a distance of 17 feet. It's made partly of Holgate-Reynolds embossed stone sheet, and then when that became unobtainable, construction continued with a cast copy of the material, made in a silicone rubber mold. Making a long wall has been a long job.
In front of the Great Wall is the Great Weed Bed.
Here is Alex's first switchstand, installed in Middle Heights with a temporary flag. It's operated by a mechanism down below.
