Division 4 NMRA MCR



Hi Ben and all,

I'm sad of whats been happening and hope that everyone is well and stays that way. Missing out on the meetings and event are going to be a bummer but hope things be better soon and we can do more than before.
Since we didn't have our last meeting and I have made (before the meeting got cancel) a unusual flat car for the contest.  Since we can't do it now I thought I would show it for fun.
 It's an old Santa Fe (Tyco) flatcar, on it is a Matchbox forklift, 3 homemade odd houses made out of cardboard and the stacks are pieces of plastic phone hoses that protects the phone wires. The straps are from packing wrapping straps, strip down to fit and the end connectors are the plastic phone hoses. So I wrap the straps through the holes on the flatcar and hold it with the phone hoses, so if I wanted to, I can remove them easily (no clue was used).   Would of like to show it on the website but I Hope ya like it.

see ya soon. stay well,

John F. Hughes
Div. 4 member.
