Dick Elmquist is holding up a piece of plexiglass on the table that he and Bob Moengen worked on for the new layout at the Bethany Good Samaritan Village home in Brainerd.

The next step was to design the layout. The table is on casters and moves easily. Two casters on opposite corners are the locking type so the table won't move when in position. They built it to accommodate wheel chairs for the residents.

For several years, Dick Elmquist and several other members have maintained an O gauge layout at Bethany Good Samaritan Home in Brainerd. Everything has been revised and rebuilt following the gift of the O gauge equipment.

All the track will be Lionel Fastrack, that was recently donated.

Work began in the back room on the new layout, with Dick Elmquist and Bob Moengen carrying the ball. Dick and our famous model, Darlene BLAZINA, are demonstrating how the side panels can be removed to allow access by folks in wheel chairs.

The blue film will be removed. Ted Anderson wired in the three power circuits. There are several unnamed members who were instrumental in putting this project together, and we apologize for not having all the names. BUT, the layout is up and running and we thank all who were involved.
