Tom's a little under the weather but MRR can't be stopped with a little assistance from Mike Slater. Dana Driskel introduces his 1920s layout. Martin Coombs provides an update on Ken's annual open house, a year ago visited by Tom himself, and a number of other updates. Malcolm Johnson is seeing Tom's advice on a situation with his layout and Tom is pleased to offer advice. Morgan Pavia has been going through starts and stops but still has a fascinating update. Dave Barraza describes a much increased garden layout and an update on LCC. Mike Slater has been working on the trolley line wiring and discusses the generations in the hobby.
