Dave Downie to present clinic on prototype railroading for your layout

Our meeting is being held on Friday, April 7th, which is a week earlier than usual, as the second Friday in April this year is Good Friday. 

For our final program of the year, Dave Downie presents a look at how prototype railroads operate, and how you can create a plan to operate any model railroad like the prototype and make it enjoyable. 

Dave will cover some basic concepts such as the history of model railroad operation. He'll help you identify what you want to do on your model railroad and to consider how the prototype operates with industries on your layout, which creates switching traffic. This leads to the development of a schedule to coordinate train movements and to develop a method of directing the movement of cars and equipment using car cards, car tabs and switch lists. 

The meeting starts at 7:30PM at the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Boulevard. The canteen will be open, and we'll also have our monthly mode display and a 50-50 draw. Hope to see you all there!
