Now that the busy month of October is behind us, it’s getting closer to the time we start preparing for the holiday season that’s right around the corner; always a time for sharing, and also an abundance of opportunities for all to take in. It’s time for Short Line Model Railroad Club to get back to business. Our next meeting will be held at the Sunbird Community Center on Saturday, November 8. The meeting is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. and will be held in the Pima Room on the second level, just to the left of the restaurant.
For those interested in the model railroading hobby, this may be something you may want to consider. We are always looking for new members who may bring in fresh ideas, and are looking for a fun way to enjoy their spare time. It is not necessary to have an operating layout to become a member and we try to participate in as many community activities as possible. It’s nice to be in the middle of the excitement, and also meet many of your neighbors around the area.
As always, interested parties are always welcome. We are always looking for new members who are willing to share their past experiences, or even just like to participate in some of the activities we have throughout the year. New plans that are being put in place will allow the club members to participate in putting together individual modular models that can be built to suit your dreams in a limited size and become a part of a working “N” scale layout when everything is tied together. This will be shared at our upcoming meeting on where this is headed.
At our November meeting we will have the pleasure of a guest speaker who will be talking about what’s going on at the Phoenix Trolley Museum. Mr. Tom Amrhein has been associated with the museum for years and will bring us up to speed on its history and the current status. The museum is located in Phoenix and several of our members have volunteered their services in the past to help develop some of its past history with a layout showing a close resemblance of the early days of operation.
