Meeting at Tom Cook’s house on July 30, 2005

We got together at the home of host Tom Cook for a meeting on Saturday, July 30, 2005. Participants in attendance: Tom Cook, Abe Friedman, Constantine Hannaher, Michael Harrod, Todd Thuma, Tony Perez.

Tom had built some of the new Technic sets: 8416 Forklift; 8420 Street Bike; 8421 Mobile Crane; 8653 Enzo Ferrari 1:10. Tony showed off the interior lighting in his diner which had been part of the display earlier this month at the 2005 NMRA Convention in Cincinnati. Abe and Michael brought locomotives and rolling stock which they ran remotely, employing Tom’s Spybotics-based contraption atop a couple of controllers. Although a Scout was tasked with keeping the trains separate at one end of the layout, the blue computerized brick was unable to keep up with inattentive operators.

A lunchtime purchase of 7244 Speedboat was quickly assembled and put to the test in the child’s pool.
