Good Meet in Charlottesville

The JRD had a good meet in Charlottesville today at Rail Tales.  A special Thank You to owner Bret Jones for not only hosting us but doing a hands on clinic for our members and guests.  Most of us weathered a car or two resulting in cars that either looked grimy or toned down the plastic sheen on our cars.  After the clinics we had the privilege of seeing Bob Macionis layout which has really come along far further than many of us thought possible in such a short time.  A real testimony to Bob’s dedication to his layout’s construction and it gives hope to that by years end it might be ready for early operations testing.   Thank you to all who came and I hope to see you in November at the joint meet with Potomac division in the Warrenton-Gainesville area.  Please note this meet will be on November 16th which is a week later than normal for us.

Meeting Updates due to Covid-19

The expanding health crisis in the US has led me to cancel all JRD events until September.  Our next meeting will be September 12 in Charlot...
