July '12
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of July 2012, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
July 18

A few recently purchased items. The DeWalt drill is back in action, after suffering the simultaneous meltdown of the battery and charger. And now we have a spare battery!
This shows 10 hobby servos, and 10 holders for them to be used to operate turnouts. These are for the upper level, where we don't want turnout motors sticking down the way the Tortoise units would.

This shows one of the servos installed on the holder. It's just mounted to scrap plywood (and the holes were made with the DeWalt drill!)

Ordered but not yet received: a 21-inch monitor with resolution 1920x1200 pixels, for the dispatcher's console of our enlarged railroad.

Joe Onorato visited, and was interested in buying the old coaling tower and water tank. We don't have steam loco service these days, so we agreed on a trade for a few copies of the History of TMRC, which occasional customers are interested in.
Goodbye coal and water towers.

As mentioned in the previous report, we got a new wide-screen monitor. It can show 1/3 of the railroad at high resolution, and where the entire system is seen at low resolution, there's a better view than the previous monitor achieved. We have dreams of enough displays to show the complete railroad at high resolution--maybe 5 or 6 screens end to end.

It is an Acer monitor and the computer is also an Acer, but that's a coincidence.
