Greenberg February 2003
These photographs were taken by Val Pistilli at the Greenberg Show at Ft. Washington in February 2003, our first complete setup.
Left side
The entire modular RR.. It is an oval consisting of four 4 foot modules per side. Four curved modules, and two two foot modules on each end. This was the first time all the modules were connected together.
The two modules on the left belong to Val Pistilli. Some structures are visible, with more to follow. There is a curved turnout on the left end that curves toward the rear of the module, this is to connect to Vals' home layout. That is, if he ever starts one!!
These two modules are the efforts of Chris O'Brien. He is attempting to model the Heinz plant in Pittsburgh. Chris has a sizeable collection of Heinz cars of all types. Now, construction of the plant inself is the next task, as well as support structures. An Ice plant and platform have been constructed and will be seen when the modules are set up next.
Doug Baer designed and built the modules of Poplar for stability, lightness, and workability. These four belong to Doug as well as the four corners and the two short end spacers. As you can see by the track plan, that we like to operate, and the track plan reflects this.
One of Dougs' corner modules
Here we see two corner modules and the two foot end spacer. Our main lines are at 5" and 7" from the front edge. In the haste of getting ready for the show the next day, the spacer module had the tracks glued on at 3" and 5". Ooops!
