Joe Hampl also dabbles in old clock repairing. He got this old Great Northern clock
ticking and gonging to keep fairly accurate time, and he hung it in the store area.
It's not exactly a Timex, but it still is ticking!
trainproject G scale modeler Jerry Creighton is developing a modular layout in his basement. As with most of us modelers, he isn't afraid to experiment or take a little levity in developing a scene. Basically, the layout is on a logging theme from the Wisconsin woods.Click here or on the photo for more information.

Following a dinner meeting at an area restaurant, some of the members visited the home and layout of Dennis & Pam Graff for a nice dessert and coffee. We then went out to the detached workshop area where Dennis and Pam spend many hours of their time. Pam is an accomplished seamstress. Dennis was very instrumental in the construction of the original HO layout for the N.M.R.H.A. in Crosslake. Click here or on the photo for more information.

project Longtime member Bob Moengen and his wife Janice have dedicated an area in their basement to preserve their Lionel trains for their family and friends.
