Thanks to everyone for a very
successful 2013 Model Railroad Open House Schedule. Layout
owners reported excellent attendance and lots of new faces.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a Happy
New Year. We will start our process for the 2014 open house
schedule on August 15th. We collect dates from layout
owners from August 15th to September 15th and we hold to our
deadlines. New layout owners should contact me directly for
instructions and information. As always, I prefer that all
layout owners proactively send their open house info in
during our time frame. We can't promise we will call you if
we do not hear from you.
Thanks to all who donated
so generously in 2013 towards the costs of maintaining this
site. I also want to take a moment and thank our volunteers
that assisted this year including Joe Walters, John Lassahn,
Charles Chandler II, Jerry Britton, PJ Mattson, Dale
Ridgeway, Bob Jans and finally to Karen Darling who handles
our website and does an awesome job. Be safe and support our
local hobby shops and do some model railroading!
NOTE: If you are hosting an
open house and have a picture
of your layout that you would like featured in the rotating pictures
at the top of each page, please email it to Karen at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Each picture must be at least 500 x
200 pixels. I'd prefer you send the full size image. Keep
in mind that I need to use a portion of the picture that will show
your trains and/or layout in the 500 x 200 pixel area. Currently
most of the pictures are of garden
layouts, we'd like more of other scales. I'll let you know if
it is accepted. Due to the large number of folks
participating, only one picture from each person will be used.
It is possible that due to content and/or layout of the scene, it
might not be suitable. If your layout has a name and website, please let me know and I will
include it in the listing.
Thanks to those who donated to the
cost of running the site!
