Museum Updates:  November 2014

7-1/2" Gauge: Track maintenance is on-going and various improvements continue to be made at each work session. At the last Open House, we had 5 different trains in operation including the first ever live steam engine. Due to layout size limitations, not all trains could operate concurrently, but a great time was had by all.

Overhead G-Gauge: Two of the three loops of track on the overhead G
gauge layout are operational. The 3rd loop is still being installed but should be completed soon.

Std/Tin Plate: Two O-gauge steam locomotives have been fitted with can motors to improve reliability on the upper O-gauge loop.

S Gauge: The mountain is complete. The S-gauge layout is operating as it should.

HO Gauge: There are several on-going projects being done on the layout including wiring improvements, completion of the mountain narrow gauge loop, and scenery improvements.

N Gauge: A mountain area at the rear of the N-gauge layout is being constructed. The track conditions have been significantly improved allowing for long train operations again.

Stop in to see the new overhead railroad and other on going improvements as well as all the changes made during the summer break.

 


A New Layout is in the Wind

The long awaited Outdoor G Scale Rail Road (Garden Railroad) has begun. We are planning to have four (4) lines. One will be for steam or battery only The others will be electrically powered tracks so members can bring their trains from home and run them. The front of the layout will have a brick walkway with a rock retaining wall similar to the one the 7 railroad team built. The layout will be elevated two feet or more above the current ground level. We are also planning to have a mountain, water fall, river, and several tunnels and trestles.  January 2015  (more info)
