Expect to see more live steam at Youth Community Park this summer. Dave has completed his locomotive and it will most likely be polishing the rails at the park this summer.
More progress is being made on the redwood empire live steamers track at Youth Community Park. Dave resisted the siren song of the train show in Santa Rosa and instead, spent the day out at youth Community Park adding a switch to our track. Theis is all part of the “Y” project that will allow us to turn trains around on the main line and make operations much easier to perform.
Don Bruner-Welch has been hard at work on re-ballasting portions of the main line at Youth Community Park. The photo above shows newly laid ballast that will ensure smooth running this coming spring. If you are interested in helping out, give Don a call, Work parties generally occur on Sundays around 10:00 at the park.
2013 Club memberships are now available
Now is the time to consider joining the club. Your $35 Dollar membership supports our public run days at the park. You can also operate club locomotives and cars. Help run a railroad! Bigger trains mean bigger fun!
The November 10 th. work party installed a new switch and two sections of track near the skate park to start off the eastern loop.
Dave has reached a tentative agreement with the owners to donate the locomotive outright to RELS. Their desire is to have this completed by 12-31-2012. We have offered to procure and install a plaque on the locomotive acknowledging the construction by Mr. Chavez and the donation by his heirs.
Kaiser Permanente Community Giving Campaign has donated another $600 courtesy of Annʼs contributions at work. Thank you Ann. . They will also provide a matching grant of up to $200 in 2013
We’ll be at Youth Community Park on October 6th & 7th from noon to 4:00.
Pack up the whole family for a great time. The weather is going to be nice too.
We look forward to seeing you!!
