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!

This is the N-scale layout recently donated to DSED (photo by Bill McKean). We will discuss its future at the June 13th meeting.

One of the things we will need to do, is to solve the puzzle of all the switches / block control.

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.
