Wow - what a busy few weeks! After posting my Thanksgiving Weekend progress, life got a bit crazy with Christmas stuff, visiting friends & family, and business travel. Consequently, my workbench has been in the same state as it was two weeks ago. Until last night . . . but I'll save that for tomorrow's post.
In the meantime, and relevant to this here blog, one of the places I was able to visit recently was the Nauset Model Railroad Club layout in Orleans, MA out on Cape Cod. We go about the same time every year, during their Holiday Open House, and last year included the added attraction of John Pryke's Union Freight layout. Click here for more on that visit, including photos.
This year's visit included an unexpected surprise - the addition of yet another layout! "Millvale" is an urban module built by Ben & Bob Shea (hope I got that right) for the Cape Cod Model Railroad Club and it arrived at the NMRC just about a week before our visit. As you'll see in the photos, it provides a very nice complement to John's Union Freight. In fact, the plan is to join the two layouts into one large city section.
Be sure to click the links above to visit these great clubs, even (or perhaps especially) if you can't get out to the Cape. And to whet your appetite, enjoy the photos below!
