February 11, 2010

We set up the 4’x8’ layout at the recent 2-day TTOS show at the Leonard Post. Paul Wachowicz, John Cole, Tom Koziol, Lew Cabello, Mike Gillian, Larry Asp, Don Webster, Roger Huff, Harry Morath, Dan Malkiewicz, and Gregg Mummert assisted Saturday and/or Sunday with the display. Thanks to all for helping man the display.

We had some interesting buildings on the layout Saturday and some trees were added. Thanks to Mike, Lew, and Larry for bringing the buildings and Dave Blaufuss for donating the trees. Unfortunately no one had a camera handy.

We had a variety of equipment operating both days… Santa Fe Galloping Goose, AM PRR Pacific, AF 310 Pacific, Putt PRR 2-6-0, AM Santa Fe FP7 A&B, AF Northern, AF custom Canadian National GP7, AM CSX SD60, LTI/AF UP Big Boy, PHM Arcade & Attica 44 Tonner… We had to widen the tunnel portal slightly for the Big Boy but it was worth it to see this engine run.

We signed up three new members at the show: Larry Asp from Guelph, ON, Dave MacDonald from Tonawanda, and Paul H. from ? Welcome!

The TTOS made a donation to our treasury after the show.

The next meeting/work session will be held at Paul Wachowicz’ home on WEDNESDAY, February 24th, at 6 PM.
