Wayne PAL Show Report - February 11, 2018

Setup started on time at 7:45, with a good turnout of members.  Although Dave & Phil had to do some quick modifications to the layout when we saw that the O scalers had taken more space than usual, we were still running at 9:17, when a brief "Golden Spike" ceremony was held as Mike W connected the last two modules.

We had already cleaned the track, connected the DCC, powered up, and test run, so trains were running immediately.

Present  were Dave F, Dave E,  Liz, Phil, Brian, Frank, Patrick O, Patrick C, Bob Z, Mike M and Mike W

  • Seven people brought modules (around 33 in all). 
  • Lizz, our newest member,  premiered her winter themed endcap in the layout.
  • At times there were at least six trains running, with more waiting parked in the yard and on sidings. 
  • A few minor mechanical issues.  No electrical issues!  
  • And no one was gassed by the O gaugers' smoke,  nor deafened by their noise!!  (Editor's Note: Mike M., Frank, and Phil were bothered by the absolute racket their one train was making)
A great day!!

As Brian mentioned, we needed to change the layout on the fly, and this is the "as-built" plan.
