was started by welcoming new members Skip Haig, John Kolonay, and John
Raczkiewicz to the club.
Greenberg Train Show in Monroeville was successful and after a few minor
track corrections the trains ran well. Even though several members couldnít
attend with their modules the layout combined with the Div 2 modules were
enough to fill the area assigned. The club also received an honorarium of
$125 for participating.
Greenberg Train Show will be in November at yet unspecified dates. We also
donít know at this time whether the Mt. Lebanon Light Night will be held
this year so we are going to wait until more information is available to
decide which of the shows we will attend.
funds available are $4387.25 in checking and $551.00 in cash. After some
advanced math the total reported is $4938.25 in the treasury.
Graybill presented a clinic on the types and construction of tunnels.
Timber, stone, and concrete portals were discussed along with tunnel
linings, wingwalls, and access to trains that may derail inside tunnels.
also brought a scenery instruction book that he recommended called "How To
Build Realistic Model Railroad Scenery" by Dave Frary which covers all types
of model railroad scenery including tunnels.
SHMRRC meeting will be at the Mt. Lebanon United Lutheran Church at 7:00 pm
on Tuesday, August 30, 2022.
