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
