Our Get-together BBQ & train run Group
July 18th. 2015

Hi All.
Well we finely got the Garden R.R. needed repairs and updates changes done.
We have changed Wilsonville trackage and widened the main street, added music to the Dance hall at Pine Hollow and lots of other minor changes.

It's been quite awhile since we had a Train run so with the weather the way it is, we are going to try for a 9 am to 12 Pm Sat. morning train run for those that like to run and watch trains.

Then continued around 6 PM with a train run in the evening for our night train run and have a potluck BBQ .
Try to coordinate with Jane or myself for the BBQ potluck and Train run.


We’ll open up the gate for parking in vacant lot next door.
Hope to see you here.
Noel & Jane

On 32nd Nat. Conv. nbr. 86 layout tour

Just long time doing some update with our group.

We are rebuilding and updating the R.R. for our tour time of July 13th 2016.
Its been a big hall trying to get things done in time.

Had to re-seal the Koi pond that took two weeks to get done, and another week to prep it for the fish. Then 2 large Turtles moved in from the back pond that had to be fetch to another area.

Seem like when on a open house that where you find a lot of problems you didn't know about. Lots of repair and rebuild a tunnel. Also had to move the large water wheel out to miss the tunnel behind it. Had to use a com-along to get that done. And ya ... some more wiring to be done.

Anyway... the yard and R.R. is coming together with the help of our small train R.R. group and SVGRS club.

We are going to try something difference by going on our Live Internet Channel ( http://original.livestream.com/noelw/?rt=1&ra=721089 ) with live cam and Club video off and on thru out 10am to 10 pm ant night.
Ben Shell helped us get in another router and more cables to get the cam in most areas.

The Nat. Steam Up also start on that day. It should be a interesting day.

Here is a short clip of testing a couple of Eng.s

Well our time with the 32nd Garden R.R. tour came July 13th. 2016 and what a lot of people. At one time the Parking lot was full next door. It was hard to get any photos due to lots of people sometimes.
Here is our two animated signs.
