Presidents Report:


   The next setup will Mt. Lebanon Light Night, Nov. 15.  We will need to setup that afternoon and some members plan on starting soon after 12:00.

We expect to participate in Locomotion Weekend at the Science Center Jan. 12-13.

The Bill Baldwin library dedication will be Wed. Dec. 19, 6 TO 7pm. 

At Lite Nite we will raffle some starter HO sets which were donated to the club earlier this year and Paul will be testing those sets to make sure they are operational.


Treasurers Report:


  The treasury remains in good shape. 




Dale demoed Christmas themed steam train all white with red and green lettering, several box cars and gondola loaded with sparkly Xmas trees.  The box cars contain a music system playing Xmas music.  If anyone has figures such as elves etc. that could be added to this train, contact Dale.  This is sure to be big attraction running on our Lite Nite setup.

Dave Bodnar showed extremely small polarized two conductor connectors and a sensor similar to a motion detector but uses an infrared detector.  Also, miniature USB powered soldering iron.

Dale modified an N scale diesel locomotive to fit in a DCC decoder.
