Upcoming Train Shows & Events
Recent Show Reports
Seventeen club members participated in our annual NTRAL show at Windsor Point Retirement Home in Fuquay-Varina. Seven members were there all three days. It was especially good to see Linwood Wells and how he is recovering from his serious medical issues.
Viewing of the layout by residents of Windsor Point and guests was sparse at best, much less than during our shows on Father’s Day weekends. Windsor Point provided lunch on Saturday and Sunday. We also had background music for most of Sunday, although we will forgive Windsor Point for playing cowboy music instead of train music.
Seven NRMRC members (Derway, Kalinowski, Koss. McConnell, McCurry, Peacock, Wallis) traveled to Pittsburgh PA for the 2017 National N Scale Convention. Dave Koss and Joel McCurry were accompanied by their wives.
Latest Meeting Minutes
Thanks to Todd Shoffeitt for hosting the event and providing an opportunity for early arrival and pizza. Also, for providing workspace and tools for members working on their T-TRAK modules. Greatly appreciated!
Thanks to Todd Shoffeitt for managing the meeting minutes. Welcome all guests including now new members Geoff Flegel and his son Ryan.
Here's a update on the two corners: Track improvements are finished and ballasted and now have red to orange and orange to red on each corner. Some poorly done track work has been repaired.
I arrived at Joe's 7:15 AM and we proceeded to test the Gray Rock's Orange and Red lines including the Frog Juicer. As soon as we hit it with track power...short!
The orange line improvements on Gray Rock are now complete. Work involved installing two turnouts from the Red line crossing over to the Orange line. These two manual turnouts are finger operated. The flexibility this will give us is tremendous!
Cork has been laid on both corners and track work has begun...which came too an abrupt stop when I had a senior moment!
