Friday, February 23rd found a contingent of NRMRC members congregating at the storage shed to help load up the club trailer. Thankfully, we had a number of members come to help load, even though they couldn’t make the show. Chris Thompson, John Wallis, Sly Glass, Bob McConnell, and our esteemed leader, Todd Shoffeitt were there initially when Superintendent David Derway arrived. Shortly after the 9:30 arrival time, Joel McCurry and Dave Thompson arrived with the club trailer in tow.
The North Raleigh Model Railroad Club held a T-Trak show on February 3, 2018 at the Galloway Ridge Retirement Community, with 13 members in attendance. Set-up began at 8am and was completed at 9:45am, with trains running by the time of the show’s scheduled opening at 10am. The show was well-attended, with both residents and guests of Galloway Ridge as well as the neighboring Fearrington Village community.
Latest Meeting Minutes
Thanks to Mark Blaustein for hosting the meeting.
The show & tell segment was spent on a quick demonstration of Google Hangouts, which may allow the Club to have another opportunity for video conferencing, up to a maximum of ten users.
The program segment explored our NRMRC.org website, and the use of the Forum, registration for shows and meetings, and various other options on the site.
New President, Todd Shoffeitt thanked David Koss for serving as President in 2018. Our newest member, Kenny Harris, was welcomed to his first meeting. Welcome to the NRMRC!
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!
