Program:

           

Rich Aubel has purchased, and painted people figures for the trolley. 

He will be working on redoing the conductor figures to resemble Bill Baldwin the honoree of the project.   

 

Dave Bodnar has made a name tag modeled after a RR crossing sign with flashing LEDs.  They will be distributed at the Greenberg Show.  He has included a feature in the trolley so that the conductor will automatically rotate to face the correct direction when it reverses.

Warren has been helping Kent Millerís wife in sorting Kentís RR and tool collection.  His layout may be donated to Oil City.  Warren brought in Kentís tools and spare parts for taking by the members.
