Welcome to the first Issue of our new Newsletter.
This will be an informal style of newsletter. It will be posted only as needed but no more frequently than once a month.
The re-emergence of 'The Club for Model Railroading' starts February 1, 2005. We continue the efforts of the current members to provide a time and place to enjoy our hobby of Model Railroading. We thank St. Jacobi Lutheran Church for the use of the facitility in association with Boy Scout Troop 350.
The Club meets as needed and as the membership is availble. Visitors are always welcome. but, visitors must call before attempting to visit to be sure we are meeting. Our meeting time is on Fridays, 9:15pm to 10:30pm. Call evenings to 718-854-0768 and ask for Walter Forst for info about the Club or whether or not the Club is meeting the coming Friday.
The Club is open to all interests and Scales of Model Railroading. Presently all the members have a primary interest in 'HO Scale'. The Club has a 5'x 9' two level moveable (not transportable) Layout owned in common by the Club. Motive power and Rolling Stock is owned by individual members. An explanation of members rights and responsiblities will be given to those so interested when you visit or apply.
Our weekly sessions, when held, are currently for layout construction, upkeep and repair. We expect to have short operating sessions starting soon.
This is not a fresh start, but continuation of what we started in about 1990. We do this to provide a place for not only ourselves, but for new (and veteran) hobbyists of all ages. If you are interested, get in touch and come visit soon!
