SIG Meeting updates from Feb 1st

photo 2The SIG met at Bethlehem Lutheran church to perform repairs to the SIG layout, especially on the Signal electronics, to discuss the new head amusement park ride module under Cindy’s care and also the group around Juha started working on the new train station module by taking the old apart.

The train station module is planned to have a compact shunting yard with a Marklin turntable (if we find an affordable unit) and round house (either Marklin or Faller) in addition to the buildings for passenger operations. Instead of the currently three modules, in the future, it will have two long modules.

It was also discussed that modules should have a uniform green coat.

SIG members were encouraged to adopt a module for refurbishment.

AND of course, we had some good looking trains running while discussing next action items.

The next SIG workshop meeting is on March 8th, however, there will be workshop sessions for the amusement park and the train station in between.
