ODDS 'N ENDS
Our November business meeting was also a great organizing session for
moving forward on the Children's Hospital project. Alycefaye Stewart
related preliminary correspondence with the folks at Children's and outlined
a few different layout themes. One might be similar to Phipps' southwest
desert; two might be construction oriented; but the animal theme
(zoo/safari/dinosaur) seemed to be most popular. Circus scenes were
discussed along with animations which everyone seems to like. How about an
operating model of one of the famous inclines in our fair city?
By now, most of you have received (and hopefully watched) a great sound enhanced slide presentation via e-mail from our wizard. It documents the construction of a fine holiday train and trolley that will grace the large display window of The DeBence Antique Music Museum in Franklin, PA. Bill Fallecker spearheaded the set-up plan and conceived the original idea. Contact him for details or swing by on a drive. Great inspiration for bringing back that yuletide magic of trains and Christmas!
