Our Flimsy Editor, Stan Conley, has made the leap into 3/8" scale with this Maine 2ft gauge railbus.

The railbus kit is comprised of styrene, machine metal and cast resin parts.

Afternoon Kit Busters

We held the season final Kit Buster's session in the after noon at the same location.
A number of individuals worked very diligently on their current projects.

Assemblying the tables in a row facilitates conversation between the participants.

It appears as you get older, the old eyes require a little assistance to see the smaller parts!

For the November Meet, we will be heading to the new location in Ottawa:

Location: The Kitchissippi United Church
630 Island Park Drive, Ottawa

The church is located on Island Park Drive where it passes under the Queensway (Highway 417).
Access is from Island Park Drive, just east of the underpass.

The program for November will consist of two clinics in the morning followed by an after Kit Busters Workshop. The workshop will be held at the same location as the SLD Meet.


The subject for the November Display table is Projects that didn't quite work out as planned!
The focus here is that even if we are not willing to admit it, we all have built projects (kits or otherwise) that didn't quite turnout as we planned. Here is your opportunity to share your confessions with your colleagues.


The entry fee is $5.00 at the door. NMRA members can join the SLD / NMRA and enjoy all of its benefits for a nominal fee and guests are always welcome.

Please feel free to call any member of the Executive if you have any questions or ideas. We always appreciate your input.
