Chasing Trains                      November2014
I guess its beginning to be the season to not run any trains in the garden unless equipped with a leaf blower or a snowplow!   
In addition to equipment maintenance indoors there are some train related event which may be of interest:.
The Western Pa. Model Railroad Museum will have its annual RR Journey in miniature, Nov 8 through Jan 11.  Check www.wpmrm.org for specific hours and directions.The museum is located on RT 910 near Gibsonia.  The railroad is an HO scale representation of a line from Pittsburgh to Cumberland.
The South Hills Model RR Club will exhibit its HO scale modular layout in the Mt. Lebanon Municipal Building as part of the annual light up night celebration. Dates and hours 11/20 , 6-9 PM and 11/21 9AM -9PM.  The Municipal Building is l located at 710  Washington Rd. ( Rt 19 south).
You will see that Dave Bodnar has a Coffee Mine in HO as well as G  !!.
If you are interested in train layouts with a holiday theme, check out the December issues of both O Gauge Railroading and Classic Toy Trains..There are several  excellent photos in each issue.
