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.

Mike, I am allowing this because I feel it is non-profit and in the spirit of the promotion of a good Hobby. I do not see your venture as a profit motivated one. I post this so that any person complaining will already have their question answered. This is not a commercial site, this is a site promoting the hobby, and a hands on facility needs money to operate, that is just plain common sense. Good luck with your venture, and post pics on your progress, please. Thanks! :)

I love N-scale trains. They have always been my favorite scale rain! :) :thumb:
 
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.

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.

Here is the latest from the Southern New Mexico N Scalers.
We are happy to announce we had a huge donation from a couple in Alamogordo NM of nearly $5000.00 worth of N scale structures and supplies.
We have all of the fascia and hard skirting painted and are currently working on the sky board.
Please take a moment to look at our web page.

That is a really awesome layout. Maybe you can upload some YouTube Vids so we can embed them here. :)

We have nothing like that in Connecticut, at least not very close to where I live. New Mexico is such a beautiful state. Thanks for the updates, and feel free to posts pictures! :)
