Change in Clinic Lineup

For personal reasons Mike Garber will have to delay his DCC clinic to a future meet.  Rod Vance's description of his clinic:



"Anatomy of a Motive Power Project" and it summarizes my approach to building (combination R-T-R modification and scratch-building effort) an HO-scale gas-electric rail motorcar.  The resulting motorcar was the 2nd entry in my AP Motive Power efforts.

The clinic describes the research I did in prototype rail motorcars, and how I selected and built the components I chose to include in my model.  I talk about the documentation I did for the AP entry, and finally the improvements I made to the model based on the AP evaluation comments.

See you at the meet
