DSED Member Alan Saatkamp, Master Model Railroader, will be featuring his new Progressive Rail switching layout at the 2013 Trains At Christmas November 23-24 at the W.H. Lyons Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls.
The pictures below shows a schematic of part of the layout and a scene from Hamburg Ave. on this model of the real deal known as Airlake Industrial Park near Lakeville, MN south of Twin Cities.
Kids will have an opportunity to try their hands at operating (run trains)!
DSED will also be there with the modular layout, and we hope to feature never before seen yard modules.
We hope to see you at Trains At Christmas!
DSED is making great progress on the yard for the modular layout thanks to donations, time and effort from many.
Below are some photos by Jay Manning and Wes Garcia from the 8/17 work session.
DSED now are the proud owners of a projector and a screen to go along. Nothing is stopping us now from having more clinics and presentations!
If you have any questions about its capabilities etc., let me know.
Following the last DSED meeting we had a presentation on how to make your own turnout by Wes Garcia (see picture above – by Dave Bauman).
Do you have a clinic, product demonstration or something else related to our hobby you would like to present to the group? Let the superintendent know or leave a comment to this post.
The date for our next Open House event has been set!
Please join us on Saturday October 19th, 2013 where some DSED members will open their homes for the public.
Stay tuned for more details on where to buy tickets etc.
