New Business

Bruce Dunnam visited the club.

The depot railings need new paint and we have one can of color matched paint. Craig Lancaster volunteered to paint the railings.

Ed Underwood has spent time checking the electric meters. Considering that the layouts consume minimal power and only the refrigerator remains on, the club’s usage should be much less than what we are paying. The meter reads “multiply readings X 24”. A lengthy discussion ensued.

Gorder Locke said that the Santa Fe Modelers and Historical Society will be visiting June 23rd. They are looking to store their entire library of reference materials in the Santa Fe depot. Gordon will serve as host when they come over to tour the depot.

The O Scale group will setup at the Waco Mall on July 28th and 29th.
