Modular units Update

This week we had a lot of new people show up and help with the units. We could set up two work stations in two rooms and progress was made. Friday was one of the best days for people showing up. Then on Saturday we had more people show up, oh happy days.
OK, the hardest set of straight section with most of the switches is done with laying the track. We started to lay track on the curves. We placed 180 curves on saw horses to start bending track. We had a few problems and were at wits end when our friends from the north showed up, yes Donalda and Keith came by on Saturday. Keith saw the problem and shouted, “here I am to save the day” (I heard trumpets but everyone said it was in my head). In no time, the problem was solved and track laying continued faster and with better quality.
So, if you can come out for just a few hours,  just one day or all days both days, come on out and see what we have done so far. 

The work continue slow but sure. Now the race is on, will we have trains running at the train show?

You can now pay you dues with PayPal

One month before your dues are due I will send you an invoice for your dues.  This will give you 30 days heads up on your dues. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay with PayPal.  Just open the invoice and follow the instructions. If you open the invoice and then decide you want to pay with cash or check, just delete the e-mail with the invoice and do as you have in the past. It all works in the end.

Fare well to Donalda Stratton You will be missed

Oh Yea, She's taking Keith with Her To do the Heavy Lifting

Most of you know that this summer Donalda and Keith hve retired and returning to Canada. It has been many years since they lived up north. They were both born in Canada and just by chance did we get to enjoy their company. They joined HAGG at the Stafford show in 2010 and it has been a first-class ride. We thank you both and wish you no hot boxes and an eight-notch ride (that's safe and fast).
