Our nice new entrance

The museum has a nice new entrance which is welcoming to all. On the outside a large landing leads to our donated yellow door with a railroad type handle. Inside is an air lock and the second donated door. Lights inside and outside guide your way. Note the new sign donated by a club member. The decorations are for Independence Day 2018.

We are working on projects at home preparing for the day we can get back to the museum.
We enjoyed seeing the huge layout here. Keep up the good work.
Some guys have all the luck! Sir Rod’s amazing layout revealed:
A few photos from our first Operations Training Session on the new layout. It has been 6 1/2 years since we were last able to do this!! Many of the participating members were trying ops for the first time - it was simplified - no car cards, timetable or fast clock. But we did start learning location names, radio etiquette, some basic switching skills and the fun of an ops session. It’s also a good way to ‘stress’ the layout and test things we may not usually use during our museum day running. That just makes the layout better! We look forward to many more sessions in the future!
Something of a minor milestone for the layout today: the first test run of an Operations schedule!! One of the interesting aspects of the hobby is modeling not just the locomotives or stations accurately, but we also plan to model a representation of what the railroad did as a regional transportation system. Today, Operations Superintendent, Chris O’Brien, Guy Frick IV, and Tyler O’Brien ran through a basic schedule of 13 trains with minimal problems! Crew training will commence in the coming weeks. The operations will grow as the layout grows! Fun stuff!
Merry Christmas everyone
A little trivia associated with the passing of President Bush, 41. The Union Pacific has a locomotive in storage dedicated to him. Initially his wishes were to be taken to DC on the railroads behind this unit. Not sure if that changes or not.
Location?
We had a great time at the Rockledge Community Day/ Car Show. Thanks to all those who stopped by the Train Museum and made our opening a great success. We've had hundreds and hundreds of visitors and an extremely positive response.

It was nice to see your table at the Krewstown Road Festival!
