It has been some time since I have posted on this but we have made great progress and we now have a web site up so all can keep up with the progress.
Please let us have your comments.

Going to be a heck of a big layout, Mike!

Be able to figure out real quick which locos will be able to stack up the miles--and which will wear out trying.

Current News

We had a work session on Wednesday the 15th of August and several members attended.

We were able to get the yard ladders put together and got about 70% of the unitrack laid out for the test fit.

So far so good and really seems to be taking a shape now. When you see it in person it has a lot of vacant real estate for the future.

We have a Business meeting and work session this Saturday August the 18th at 9:00 AM for all who would like to attend.

Special Thanks to ALL of our members who have been adding sweat equity as well as funds and have made it possible to make great progress on the building and to all of our members for the support and ideas.

Ross came to the building today and is ahead on dues and has put his $50.00 into the ring as well for the tables , Thanks Ross.
We also have all of the bus wire we need as well as some feeder drop wire as well.
Bad news is we need to come up with $250.00 for our half of the insurance which was paid by the HO group last month.

We also need everyone to consider if and when you may be able to work at the fair grounds during the fair. The fair dates are the 3rd through the 7th of October.

Also bring a locomotive to run on saturday. We will not have all the track done but will have a Digitrax Zephyr and MRC pack there for pictures and test runs.


I have updated the page.

Also Donnie and Laura Joule in Las Vegas are sending some more track our way as well!!

Thanks , Mike

Well, we are making great progress so far and the county is now in charge of the grounds. It seems as though the county will do some exterior repairs to the building and help us as they are able.

I would like to take a moment and thank all of the people who have contributed funds and products to our layout.

Mike

Mike,

If your club wants, I can give them extra publicity by putting them alongside your hobby shop layout on the onlinetrainshow.com.

Perhaps you remember the site? If the club wants to od this, all I'd need is updated photos.

I do love the layout, always neat to see big scenes in small scale.

I have a friend in Las Cruces... He's a fellow glider pilot. Nice area. I look forward to seeing the layout sometime.
