April '10
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of April 2010, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
April 3

We saw some nice-looking industrial buildings at the South Shore Model RR Club a couple of weeks ago, which turned out to be the "Radical Flats" series made by Kingmill Enterprises. We ordered a few, and we've started assembling them.

Michael's paint job on the GE Dash-8 is showing some results. And it's a fine smooth-running engine. He still has detail parts to add.

Pictured on the crossing at Middle Heights.

Alex has his signal in place, but awaiting cosmetic detailing and final mounting. Figuring out the computer incantation for correct functioning proved to be a problem!


April 7

John M got new filter bags for the Pink Elephant.

These were Central Vacuum Factory item number FI-117 filter bags for Star 99115 and Brute XB5207 XV5207 and X35207V central vacuum systems.

John P has been working on a new generation of radio cabs. Here are the circuit boards, partially assembled.

Alex's signal is just about done. Even if it needs straightening!
With time on his hands, he's shifted over to vegetables again. Pumpkins are on the menu.
There are some new weeds in the Berkmannville area. And some moss, down there on the rocks.


April 28

Progress resumes after a successful Open House.
Alex has an idea for a project that requires a stepper motor. John P helped him set up a drive for a motor from an old disk drive (allowing older members to reminiscence about floppy drives).
John M is preparing an industrial lawn.
We're going to have an Operating Session on Saturday! Malcolm Laughlin came in to supervise the placement of cars and cards so we can start quickly.
Cars and destinations must match.
