Another fallen flag.

2020 has not been a good year.  We have been notified that we have until the end of the year to move out. In a hurried discussion we tentatively agreed that we may operate until the end of Sept. And then start to tear it down. This also means we have until then to find a new location, I do not think that we will be able to do that, but who knows.
People who have anything stored under the benchwork should remove it as soon as possible. We would appreciate it if you could not remove anything from the layout like rolling stock or buildings until we shut down.
If we don't find a new location we will sell all the clubs equipment when we can and divide the money.
Any ideas please let me know.

Tuesday night at the Huff and Puff

The first night back went well. Everyone wore masks, thank you! Social distancing was a little harder however. Four or five trains were run, with few problems. After being idle for months not too bad. I suspect that heat expansion could be causing some derailment problems.
Dave brought in a couple of his projects, see the motorcycle in the picture below.
As usual, great job Dave.
