Work on finishing the waterfall on the mountain is progressing very well. We are presently conducting periodic “mini-operations sessions” where members get experience operating particular trains, learning how to classify cars in Huntington Yard, operating the interchange yard at Elkhorn City, and controlling traffic with the new dispatch system

BE SURE TO SEE THE “WELCOME TO BMRC” AND “CAB RIDE” VIDEOS (LINKS ON THE BLOG ROLL).

We have set the date for our next open house on September 16-17. Be sure to put those dates on your calendar. If you happen to be driving by and see that our “open” sign is on, feel free to stop in and look around. We welcome visitors whenever we are there, but trains will usually not be operating when we’re working on the railroad.

WE ACCEPT DONATIONS OF USED MODEL RAILROAD EQUIPMENT (ALL SCALES) AND WILL ISSUE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE RECEIPTS UPON REQUEST. HELP US FINISH OUR RAILROAD BY DONATING YOUR OLD TRAINS. E-mail our president at president@bmrr.org for a mutually agreeable time. Your donations are appreciated.

MEMBERSHIP IN BMRC IS OPEN. ANYONE INTERESTED MAY CONTACT THE PRESIDENT (president@bmrr.org) OR VISIT THE CLUB ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS OR SATURDAY AFTERNOONS, or during OPEN HOUSES. PLEASE CALL AHEAD (517-486-0404) TO BE SURE SOMEONE IS PRESENT DURING THE WEEK.
