American Precision Museum Model Engineering Show
30 October 2009
Once again was well represented at the APM annual show of mode engineering. We (Terri, Roy, Eddie and I) went up on Friday and set up my display and then toured about the show looking at other exhibits while more setting up was taking place. Other NEMES members arrived throughout the afternoon and added their displays to the show.
As usual any comments, corrections or additions are most welcome. firstname.lastname@example.org If you can add a name or identification to any model that will be great. Also, video clips will be coming along shortly so check back please.

This trailer rig was put together by an instructor at a technical school to too far from the APM with grants, donations and personal effort. He travels to local (and not so local) middle schools to let young students wee what possibilities there are in manufacturing.
We had dinner Saturday night with Dave and Romayne Bono in the Station House Restraint in Windsor. The decor theme is railway and this interesting light once graced a passenger car.
