Tacoma Northwestern Railroad Club
Both David and I made our second visit to the club as they have a meeting each Tuesday. They are also open to the public the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. We have gotten some ideas for our layout by taking a close look at the things that they have done. The most interesting for me is the diesel fueling area. They had used a Walthers Cornerstone kit but both we are both in agreement that we are going to scratch build our own. Looking at theirs did give us a sense of direction on that project though. We have now added a link to their site (www.tnwrr.org) under our Tried and True. We had spent some time talking with Al, the president and Herb, the treasurer of the club. It was a very enjoyable visit and am looking forward in returning to see their progress and to gather a bit more words of wisdom.
