A topic of discussion at the March monthly meeting was the need for maintenance on our Northwest Mall layout. Several areas of the track are not working properly, there are electrical problems, wires hanging underneath the layout, the Mine Train needs attention,
there is a thick coating of dust all across the layout, the storage areas are crammed with “stuff”, some of which may no longer be needed, and the list goes on.
Michael Atkinson suggested that we establish a set work day each month where members show up to work on a specified maintenance project in order to get the mall layout back in tip top shape. Everyone in attendance agreed this was a great idea. To make scheduled
focus events like this work, a leader is needed. And, as you well know, when you suggest an idea, many times you get appointed to be “in charge” of the resulting effort! The membership voted and approved the idea of Michael being in charge of planning and communicating identified projects to be done on the first Saturday of each
month at the Northwest Mall layout starting at 9 am.
The first NW Mall maintenance session will be on Saturday, May 7th at 9 am. Note that this is different from w hat w as discussed at the meeting. It was determined after the meeting that one more work weekend is needed in Rosenberg to get ready for RailFest
so Chuck agreed we could postpone the first Mall session until May. Look for an email from Michael regarding the project for May 7 and any tools that will be needed.
