December '11
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of December 2011, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
December 3

Oh my, such Progress!

For the first time in many years--a new section of helix was made and installed. No track yet.

Note the ultra-long nut-runner. Custom made for TMRC in the distant past.

Eliza did some more work on her TV truck.

There was a suggestion that if there is Dora the Explorer, could there be "Eliza the Superviser"? It is an intriguing idea.

Steel benchwork support for the 2nd level above Berkmannville was discussed and experimented with.
There was a feeling that we haven't got enough supports for the upper-level tracks, so a new vertical 2x4 was installed near the helix. At present it's a "temporary" placement with no attachment to the floor.
Maybe David can explain why there's water under Berkmannville. Apparently this water is water soluble.
Somebody has donated a nice LCD monitor for TMRC-2. They didn't take away the old one though.


December 21

The longest night of the year, highly suitable for TMRC.

Here are some pictures in the helix area with one of the cover panels removed.
Someone with authority has decided that all the doors in our neighborhood need to be painted gray. There must be some good reason.
Andy has brought in a passenger footbridge for Killianport station. It is painted gray.
