Model Railroad Openhouse Schedule 2012 DE, NJ, PA, MD
Author: brfriedm

So our openhouses kicked off and this is our first full weekend. We had a busy day yesterday with 28 layouts open and today with 21 layouts open today. You can see our site here.

I only visited one layout yesterday as I had to get home and get ready for my own which I had last night. The below shots are from Carl Huth's Reading layout and then some shots from my openhouse. I had a very good crowd last night. Carl's is quite large and he has just started on the scenery which is looking good.

2nd shot Ethanol train passes trash train in staging
3rd shot We pulled a coupler in the helix on Q406.

First shot - My man Chris. One of my best operators at 8 and he has been operating with me for a couple of years. His dad is the dispatcher. This is Chris's first openhouse operating alone with no assistance and he did awesome.

2nd shot - Chris's train waiting for a signal to head down to staging. Waiting on 2.

3rd - Q140 exists the tunnel at Darby. (Boone Tunnel)

Since y'all have model RR's in basements, how did most of the layouts fare after the storm?

As far as I know fine. I had no cancellations from any layout owners so far since the storm.

Thanks Very Much for posting all those great photos of two layouts. I think Carl Huth's scenery is excellent and the more he does the better. Being an older MRRer I appreciate all of the fine work to obtain such layout's. Any more photos of your layout are always appreciated.

Two very good looking layouts, especally yours, brfriedm, I am partial to Modern layouts.
Two questions: First, Where did you get the CSX yard tower from?
Second, the cab on CSXT #4005 who made the cab or is it scratch built?

Bruce,

You must have some fine dispatchers to be able to handle all of those trains on a single track railroad!

Good stuff, as always.

I used those cloud stencils and you use white spray paint cans to make them. Thanks. Bruce

The tower does have a European feel to it....
