October '13
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of October 2013, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
October 2

Dillon has been laying ties in the paper mill area on the upper level.
John P installed some uncouplers in the same vicinity.
Peter has been working on a loading dock for the Raskob & Eggers warehouse. Here's the building...
...and the dock itself.


October 12

Another excellent evening of progress on multiple projects!

This illustrates John P's method of operation of a turnout using a hobby servo, along with a micro switch to change the frog polarity. This eliminates the need for a relay and extra wiring from track to control board. The cast-plastic bracket for the servo is from Motrak Models.
Prajwal bought a new miniature camera for "cab's eye view" video, and has it installed in a passenger car. See it make a movie of a pencil and a Cherry Coke(TM) can!
Here's what shows when it's out on the railroad.
Prajwal also obtained (at no cost) a third computer, which will serve some important purpose.
End of track on Level 2!
John P and Bill conferred regarding alignment of the Central Vermont tracks.
Bill did some more work on the ties Dillon installed lsat week.
This is a new support for the upper level, mostly for planning purposes.
Alex did some scenery work on the bare hillside above Middle Heights.
And here's Peter's loading dock at Raskob & Eggers.
Alex also made a roof for the truck loading area at Standard Hydrocarbon.


October 27

Eliza is back from her European jaunt, and she converted her accident scene into a crime scene. Note the miscreant escaping around the corner.
She also brought in a new car to terrorize the pedestrians of Gifford City (here pretending to be a taxi, with its clever camouflage).
John P is finally installing some anti-plunge barriers on the helix and upper level.
