Current News
We had a work session on Wednesday the 15th of August and several members attended.
We were able to get the yard ladders put together and got about 70% of the unitrack laid out for the test fit.
So far so good and really seems to be taking a shape now. When you see it in person it has a lot of vacant real estate for the future.
We have a Business meeting and work session this Saturday August the 18th at 9:00 AM for all who would like to attend.
Special Thanks to ALL of our members who have been adding sweat equity as well as funds and have made it possible to make great progress on the building and to all of our members for the support and ideas.

Ross came to the building today and is ahead on dues and has put his $50.00 into the ring as well for the tables , Thanks Ross.
We also have all of the bus wire we need as well as some feeder drop wire as well.
Bad news is we need to come up with $250.00 for our half of the insurance which was paid by the HO group last month.

We also need everyone to consider if and when you may be able to work at the fair grounds during the fair. The fair dates are the 3rd through the 7th of October.

Also bring a locomotive to run on saturday. We will not have all the track done but will have a Digitrax Zephyr and MRC pack there for pictures and test runs.


I have updated the page.

Thanks , Mike

Here is the latest from the Southern New Mexico N Scalers.
We are happy to announce we had a huge donation from a couple in Alamogordo NM of nearly $5000.00 worth of N scale structures and supplies.
We have all of the fascia and hard skirting painted and are currently working on the sky board.
Please take a moment to look at our web page.

Hi guys , this is just a quick video spot I shot at our run session last Saturday. We had a few visitors and everyone had a great time. We did have one small problem and that was we did not have enough throttles. Everyone shared though and lots of trains were run.

Thanks for taking a look.

Enjoyed the videos. Looks like a lot of progress has been made from earlier posts. Great looking layout.

It's amazing how N scale has advanced. I had an N scale layout with about 11 scale miles of main line track in the late 70's. Unfortunately, at the time the locomotives were crude compared to what is available today. They ran so poorly and the choice of available road names was also poor. I got so discouraged that I ripped everything out and moved on to HO scale. That is one excellent looking layout.
