April '11
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of April 2011, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
April 1

Here is the exhibit at the Compton Gallery, featuring our train. The MIT Museum staff added some mid-1960s pictures to the background--that's Peter Samson, Harriet Kang and an unknown person above, and an Open House scene below.
A closeup of the same scene.


April 16

Andy Miller weathered some freight cars. Nothing spectacular, just grime near ground level, but it adds a lot to the appearance.
Eliza made a building kit; it's meant to be a bakery (but we already have a bakery!)
Paul installed some new Dirt.
John P cut some new throwbars for the turnouts in the Chemical Plant area--the first to be made for several years.
Here's one of the new throwbars in place, but no switch machine yet.


April 30

We had an Open House to coincide with the Cambridge Science Festival. A junior visitor left some artwork for us.
After dinner it was Op Till You Drop. Paul ran a local to the downtown industries.
Mike switched 105th St.
And Eliza did dropoffs and pickups at Gifford Bulk Terminal.
