We're Making Progress!

Benchwork along the trackside wall of the station has progressed quickly.  The area will be home to Rochester and Goodman Yard, which measures an impressive 46 1/2 feet from its eastern yard limits to the end of the western drill track.

Now is the Time to Join Us!

We finished removing the center peninsula last Friday evening. 

The corner mountain was gone by Sunday afternoon, and the second east window is now uncovered. 

Our current schedule expects the rest of the old layout to be removed by mid June.  Work on the walls and the floor will proceed thereafter.  We are currently anticipating construction of the new layout to begin in late July.  Now is the time to become a new member!  The admission process takes approximately six weeks, and dues for your first year are only $10 per month.

We will be working Friday, May 12, Friday, May 19, and Friday, May 26 beginning at 7:00pm.

Stop in and say "Hi!"

Layout Demolition is Underway!

The Delaware and Ontario Railroad is coming down.

Demolition of the current layout began in mid-February and is expected to continue through late spring.  The membership decided during our yearly planning meeting in January to keep the south side section of the layout, Otisco Valley to Norwich, operational while the center peninsula and Kingston/Weedsport section are removed.  The underside of the layout has been cleaned out, and members have been removing structures and scenery over the last couple of weeks. 

Many of the structures used on this layout will be used again on the new layout.

Rock work is being removed and recycled into the new layout.

Renovation plans include the removal of the backdrop from the east wall and also from select areas on the south side of the building.  The elevated viewing area on the left is also coming down.     

We are still accepting donations for our new layout project!
