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

The last Progress Report showed the start of conversion of the diamond crossings on Section 14 of the helix to use movable frogs. This shows the full set of points and the mechanism which drives them. Phosphor-bronze wire in various sizes, purchased at the recent Springfield show, has been very useful in building this.
For the first time in a few years, Claude "Smoke Eater" Brown paid us a visit. Here he demonstrates that it takes a big guy to run a small train. It's his own Trackmobile, recently purchased on eBay.
We've been assigned (thanks to the efforts of Rebecca) a section of bulletin board in the Infinite Corridor. Here John M and Rebecca are measuring it.
Rebecca is also making up a poster for us to put in the ever so recently aforementioned space. John P did some photography to provide some illustrations for it.
