November '12
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of November 2012, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
November 14

Alex and John P have installed the LED light bars (seen in previous reports) in Berkmannville.
Another view of Berkmannville. The placement of the lights may be temporary, but they'll provide basic illumination for the weekend's Open House.


November 18

Open House! And in spite of our best efforts to keep it secret, plenty of people showed up both in the afternooon and the evening.


November 22

Genya visited, and accomplished some useful software. He detected bit rot.
Andy worked on the elevated station at Killianport.
John P turned a large valuable piece of plywood into smaller less valuable pieces.
Hack & mung we must for a better switch 196.
Andy's station, rear view.
Front view.
We have acquired a useful piece of technology, a dual axis inclinometer. It's a digital level that can measure angle along the track and across it simultaneously. Anyone who says "new toy" is showing no appreciation for precision instruments.
An unfortunate leftover from the Open House. While we were all busy, someone donated some stuff.
Anyone have bottles needing a good brushing out?


November 24

Genya visited again, and worked on more software. John P finished Block Card 21 (except for a heatsink) and ran a train on the bench using it, thanks to Genya's work (which included fixing John P's damage to the layout description file).


November 28

Melanie Gonick from the MIT News Office came to do video and interviews for an upcoming feature on TMRC. Quentin was her chief victim.
Our visitor made many pictures, but we got a few.
John P cleaned up the wiring around the newly relocated electrical cabinet (see Oct 13). This required purchase of a new drill bit for making holes in the top of the cabinets; using it turned out to be an extremely noisy process.
