At this Meeting and in this Issue . . .

N-scale model railroad: Tom sez “Bundesbahndirektion Kaiserslautern is my N scale version of the Pfälzische Ludwigsbahn (KBS 670) and the Alzentalbahn (KBS 650). The layout is set in West Germany in September of 1974, and is inspired by my recollections from that time. My father was stationed at Sembach Air Force Base from 1973-1976 and we had the great fortune to spend those years exploring Western Europe. They were exciting times for a young train enthusiast because the DB was still running steam. We often traveled over to Enkenbach on Friday evenings to catch the "7:30 Special" - a local pulled by a 2-10-0 Class 50 steam engine. The layout is slowly filling a 12 x 24 foot room in a walk around design. The single line Alzentalbahn branch is finished as are the staging yards. Scenery on the branch is about half done. Work is underway on the double track Pfälzische Ludwigsbahn. The layout is DCC (Digitrax) with computer control.

Clinic: Ed O'Rourke will present a clinic on utilizing vintage structures on the layout.
