Newest Layout in the Division Gets Thumbs Up

The Tuscola Beltway Railroad, the newest layout in the Illinois Terminal Division, received visitors today at the monthly divisional meet-up. Owner/Operator Thomas was called to other duties today, but everyone else enjoyed a quick tour of this very much under construction layout. Located in the superintendent’s garage, it’s part of the division’s mentorship program, which delivers good advice and on the spot instruction in whatever setting works best.

In the top picture, Mark, Buzz, and Allen look things over and discuss track arrangements. In the second, Margaret, Terry, and Mark give the project a thumb’s up. Everyone is looking forward to seeing how things grow and encourage Thomas that once he gets past the wiring, it’s all fun – really!
