FOR INTERESTED MODEL RAILROADERS IN THE AREA, WE ARE FORMING A NEW MODULAR CLUB
The members have decided to create a new modular club called the
Royersford Modular Model Railroaders. The
club meeting site will be in Royersford, but members will build and maintain their own modules at either the
members home or the club space. There will be a monthly operations night and club nights when members will meet
to work on the layout will be on Tuesdays AND Thursdays and might even include some weekends, to make it more
flexible for members' schedules. If you are in the Philadelphia area, they are looking for new members of all
skill levels who are interested in creating a modular HO scale layout for public shows and personal operations
using both club-owned and member-owned modules. For more information, email them at RMMR@RRMAIL.COM
As for the Oaks site, it will be maintained for the time being, with its future to be decided at a later date.
A video of the dismantling of our old layout, compressing 17+ hours into a minute 15 seconds, can be found in the Layout
Trains.com has an article "Dreams of railroading empire turn to dust" on their website about the birth and death of the
Oaks Model Railroad layout.
Time Magazine has an article titled "Hobbyist or Terrorist" about railfanning
in the current political climate. See it
The videos of the Conrail SAA Retirement Special and the Northern Express featuring the restored PRR E8's have been moved
to the PRR-Barf Yahoogroup.

The videos featuring the restored Reading FP7A's of Philadelphia and Lancaster Chapter of the NRHS in excursion service have been moved

A list of videos that have been retired from the site is available from a link on the Movie Archive page.
We will be building our own personal modules at home and meeting at least once a month to work on the club modules. Soon we
will be looking at a place for meetings and club projects.
When in Lansdale, come visit two of the best hobby shops around (we don't get any compensation for this plug, we just like them).
