June '15
This page describes work accomplished on the new TMRC layout during the month of June 2015, as taken from the descriptions posted to the club mailing list.
June 3

A new block card and O the horror, it has a cold solder joint. Survey work on the upper level. Build track first, then measure it to make an accurate diagram.
There will now be a large number of photos of the spring Open House, which will illustrate why we keep inviting the public in.
John Shriver comes in to get the trolleys running, for one thing!
Someone lost a five-dollar bill in the soda machine, but the resulting jam required a full teardown of the dollar receiving unit. We'd gladly have lived without the extra revenue. (Yes, all the parts went back in, and it works fine.)
And in other unfortunate news, it is clear that rules have been broken. In spite of which, trackwork continues on the upper level. This shows the transition from flextrack to handlaid on the Central Vermont route.
Some of the paper mill sidings.
The Central Vermont now has ballast and most rails down as far as the end of plywood.


June 12

New member Eric helped John P to undertake a long-considered (and long-delayed) project--fascia and anti-plunge barriers along the front of the upper level. This was just a couple of feet as a pilot installation.

The ruler in Eric's hand is an antique item specially marked to measure the output of line printers.

Unlike the fascia for the lower level, the plastic panels are screwed into place rather than being dropped into a slot, but the whole installation is much narrower, both above and below track level.
Decus et tutamen. New member Jessica installed ties on the paper mill sidings.
Just in from the West Coast Shops--a factory photo of the new bridge intended for the Green River crossing near F-Yard. Operating mechanism TBD.
