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.

The layout for this show included 34 individual modules; 15 from the Lynchburg Area N Scalers (LANS) and 19 from the North Raleigh Model Railroad Club (NRMRC).  All of the crew and equipment arrived at the ETSU “Mini-Dome” by 3:00 pm on Thursday afternoon.

Thanks to Todd Shoffeitt for managing the meeting minutes. Welcome all guests including now new members Geoff Flegel and his son Ryan.

Thanks to Sly Glass for hosting the June meeting. Greatly appreciated the accommodations, and the tour of Sly's layout.

Module Updates

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!
