Bob Roegge showed photos and a video of the progress on his 1.24th scale layout. Later he demonstrated an HO GP40 that he had converted to battery power. (Click here for a short video)

Paul DeLuca shared slides of his visit to Train Mountain Railroad.


 Ricky Keil brought the Farmers Coop Elevators he's building for a freemo module.

Ryan shared a few photos taken at Spring Creek Hobbies in Deshler, NE. 

We also did a little business. Nominations for offices were opened and the HO groups throttle was donated to a museum. 

 

Fun Stuff


Is your hot wire cutter too small? Mike Deverell needed to shape some hills on his Colorado Front Range Railroad and built a large hot wire cutter from PVC pipe. The range of hills in this demonstration video sits above a staging yard and is removable for access.

See you at the meeting, gs
