Presidents Report:

Jeff is applied for a space at the November Greenberg show. Again, we will probably partner with Division Two. Scott Lite Night is December 2nd. Mt. Lebanon and the Science Center are doubtful.

Treasurers Report

The treasury remains in good shape.


Dave Bodnar is working on an incline for the O gauge layout at the VA Hospital that features a collection of ceramic houses. The interior light in the incline car will be illuminated with a LED powered by a capacitor discharge. The capacitor will be inductively charged at a station and will last until the return trip.

Dale mounted a freight container on a flat car. The container houses a cell phone battery and circuitry for flashing LED so as to function as the last car on the train.
