Clinic 1: Reality and Model Railroading for an Engineer by Mike Byle
The presentation will cover would some of my family background and how a lifelong interest in railroads has influenced my career and pastimes; from my first train set to complex real life design projects in under and around rail lines including Amtrak’s High speed rail clearance improvement project, CSX double stack low grade in Philadelphia and many bridges and some of the unseen realities of rail infrastructure.
Clinic 2: Modeling with Alternate Materials by Barry Rosier
This clinic will demonstrate using alternate materials to model structures. The materials include cardboard, card stock, and printed textures. We will discuss sources for materials, construction methods, and design considerations.
All attendees are encouraged to bring a model to the meet. At the end our clinic, we have a show and tell. It is an open mike opportunity to share a recently completed project or give a glimpse of an in-progress work.
As usual we’ll hold our 50/50 raffle, draw for door prizes, and have coffee, donuts, and Philly soft pretzels.
The afternoon promises to be a real treat with several excellent model railroads open for you viewing pleasure. Hope you can make it!
