Find us on:
everyone for a very successful 2014 Model Railroad Open
House event. 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 2015 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 2014 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, Chuck Kaydk, Jerry Britton, PJ
Mattson, Forrest Lucas, Fran Giacoma, Lee Rainey, 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 for next year, please email it to Karen
prior to September 15, 2015
firstname.lastname@example.org. Each picture must be at least 500 x
200 pixels. I'd prefer you send the full size image. Cell
phone photos are often not adequate. Keep
in mind that I need to use a portion of the picture that will show
your trains and/or layout in the 500 px wide x 200 pixel tall
rectangular area. I'll let you know if
it is acceptable. 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!
