September '13
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of September 2013, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
September 4

For the first time in living memory--we're getting the floor cleaned and waxed. But there's work to be done...
The more objects we get off the floor, the more of it we'll have clean.
Prajwal is holding up a caster that came off one of the rolling plastic cabinets. Those were moved into MITERS, by permission of the management there.
Alex came in and did some experiments with pastel chalk to simulate rusty corrugated roofing.

The floor was indeed cleaned and waxed, and looks gorgeous (for a day or two). It would have been possible to eat one's dinner off it, but a soda will have to substitute.
Alex is helping new members Peter and Rebecca (not to be confused with Rebecca and Peter) to make trees.
New member Drew worked on locomotives.


September 14

TMRC was a veritable hive of activity this evening, with multiple projects under way simultaneously. New members who haven't visited yet, come and join in!

We're planning an Operating Session next Saturday. It will be mayhem in the model world, but it'll be fun.



Drew and Alex worked on extending the Wattahack River to eliminate a gap that has existed for many years, and prepared for the installation of the lift bridge which has been planned for the location.
John M also helped, abandoning his usual supervisory role.
Prajwal continued the locomotive electrical project mentioned last week (with John M's invaluable supervision).
David Lambeth is visiting from California, and has made some impressive walls for the sides of the Wattahack River.
He also worked on a building.

Alex shifted over to work on another building.
Bill Onorato laid some ties for the paper mill tracks on the upper level.
John P got the first turnout on the upper level working with a servo, and one of his microprocessor-based driver boards.
This is the servo installation below the benchwork. Note the micro switch to control frog power, thus eliminating a relay.
