Work Days

Updated:       Feb 23, 2018    1:15 AM

***  At the CPR&SS club meeting, it was decided to wait a bit for better weather to work at the track.  Check back here for an announcement of a work day.  The passenger cars need to be put in the tunnel and the decorations need to be taken down and readied for storage. 

CPR&SS Members:  The pictures immediately below were taken on Tuesday, Nov 21, 2017 as preparations continued for the Carillon Christmas which ran from Nov 29th  through Dec 30th.   The next train run is April 07, 2018.


Below is Howard W. by the little tower, Bob S re-leveling the stub switch, Jim H.  and Howard putting the final touches on the tunnel, and Norm G. hanging the power for a display to be put up.  Not shown are Don H. and Larry W. who also helped and had their own projects.

The next three pictures were taken on the work day on Tuesday, Oct 10.  Right below is Jim H  with a possible approach to a train tunnel for the holiday train storage.  It covers two tracks this year.  Tarps will be supported by the PVC pipes and fittings.  Other approaches are still being considered.  Other workers present this day were Bob S, Howard W, and Jim E who worked on the new track extension and John L  who installed the switch light shown below.

At the March 02, 2017 club meeting, it was decided to have work days on Tuesdays and non-run Saturdays (if the weather permits).   Most workers show up between 9 and 10 AM.  If you come, we will put you to work on the track, grounds, equipment, etc – what ever needs attention.  Thanks, in advance, for your support!
