South Shore Model Rail Road Club
23 March 2013
Short Show Video HERE
|I visited this show last year and was so impressed with
the club facility and the friendliness of the members that I decided to
go again this year. I am not really a model train person but any
excuse to get out and about in the spring time is a good reason!
We had to get off I95 to find gas in Mansfield and took the scenic route
from there to Hingham. Saw parts of Massachusetts we had not seen before
so it was very pleasant. But we had to turn off the voice on the
GPS as it wanted us to turn around and go back to the main
highway. And that darn thing is VERY persistent.
The South Shore track is a constantly evolving (as, I am sure, are most club tracks) and some of these photos show that evolution and development.
The photo on the left is the "video camera" engine. The picture is transmitted to the monitor show in the other photos.
All the locomotives are remote controlled using hand held devices. Receivers in the locos read signals from the controllers that control speed, lights, sound and so on. In this way an engineer can walk around the layout supervising his train at every step of the way.

If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org To identify a photo just hover your cursor over the photo and a tag should pop up. Please use the last three digits of the tag to identify the photo. For example if the tag came up DSC03974.jpg (205067 bytes) the info I would need is 976.jpg. If this is a multi page unit the page number would also be useful.
