Here’s the hall news for our 35th Module Meet. (Really — it’s
the 35th!) First (and most important) is that the hall scheduling problems from last year were solved at the end of
the 2017 Meet by agreement with our host, the Kimberton Fire Company. The hall is ours on our regular weekend! No excuses
for not knowing the date.
The website is up and ready to accept registrations. Module Groups — try to contact me early as to what you’re bringing.
Suggestions made after the 2017 Meet are changing my thinking on how the Hall will be arranged.
Clinics this year (as of right now — subject to change)
- New for our 35th Anniversary — Les Davis will be bringing equipment featuring 3D printing and imaging for parts
production. He has given this demonstration at the Mid Hudson On30 Meet and is ready to stop by and show us what is
possible. Les has won many awards at past Narrow Gauge Conventions; his work has been featured in the pages of the
Narrow Gauge Gazette and the On30 Annuals.
- We’re working to have Don Bordon return again. His “Prototype Steam Operations & Sounds on Santa Fe’s Cajon Pass
in the Late 1940’s” (including lots of narrow gauge information) was informative and received many favorable comments.
- Kevin Hunter featuring his Touch Toggle system of turnout control and new innovations in layout control.
- Geren Mortensen on “Dead Rail” techniques / equipment.
- Alan Carroll “the Master of Slice & Dice” will be at his tables showing how locos can be modified and enhanced
for unique situations.
The Hall will open at 10 am on Friday. Both Bruce and I are again limited this year as to what we can lug around
the Hall, so please bring some muscle and give us a hand.
Hoping this finds everyone Happy & Healthy.
