One of the two small ‘hands-on’ layouts in the room, and some of our bigger train artifacts on the wall. Where else could we put the 10 ft steam engine fire box rake?
The coffee station, oh how we’ve missed you! Mike came up with a novel way of displaying our freight car brake hoses under the TrucTrain sign. I can’t remember seeing anyone else actually showing the air hoses connected.
The two display cases. They’re already filled and we’re looking to add another case.
Case one has a locomotive speedometer, cab signal, flagman’s kits and insulators.
A view of case one from the top showing the Bethlehem Steel Pipe flag.
Case two with the lanterns and track tools.
Case two from the top showing the S-12 number board and some of the railroad paperwork we’ve gathered along the way.
The Reading and Old Lehigh coal signs
One of several railroad crossing signs, and a marker lamp.
Our library, Blue Coal sign and a ‘smash board’ from Shark tower on the NY&LB
The main hallway also got posters and memorabilia.
Our oldest Rail Road Crossing sign. Each piece is about 1-1/2 inches thick and about 5 foot long.
The number board from Penn Central passenger car 4440 and name plate from NY,NH&H tavern car Putnam County (well the Putnam end anyway).
Here’s the workshop. For some reason, this is room the most coveted by other model railroad clubs and the other organizations in our building.
One of the mock-ups for the layout room by Steve. the green part on the right is the layout itself. This version includes the possible future expansion to the current layout.
