Grand County Model Railroad Club Newsletters

Club members receive our monthly newsletter. We will be posting our most recent newsletter here, along with downloadable archives of previous newsletters.

Current GCMR Club Newsletter - Newsletter Number 51 :: August 11, 2011
Our August meeting will be on Thursday August 25 at the Granby Town Hall, upstairs in the Conference Room, with a Board Meeting beginning at 7 PM, followed by a Club meeting. However, the upstairs conference room only holds 10 people sitting at the conference table. Therefore, if more than 10 people show up for this meeting it will be held in the Town Board room on the main floor. There will be no club meeting on the 3rd Wednesday, August 17.

There has been lots of volunteer labor working on both the shed and the caboose. Come by and see the progress. Any time when you can take a couple of hours to work just let Dave or Jack know and we will find someone to work with you. It will probably take quite a few hours to strip the caboose and prepare the framework for installing the new exterior, one side at a time. We really don’t know what to expect when we take the old wood off. We also need to remove all of the metal hand rails, ladders, etc., for paint removal and preparation for new paint. Some of the hand rails have been removed and stored in the shed, pending removal of old paint and repainting.

No new news about delivery of the coach. Wally Baird is arranging for us to take legal action against the shipper to either force delivery or get return of our $9,500 advance so we can make other arrangements. It is said to learn that we should have put the money in escrow instead of advancing it.

Dave Naples, in the guise of David Moffat, a Grand County Character, has been invited to make a presentation in Washington, New York, the ancestral home of the real David Moffat, where there is a Moffat Museum.
