New Ceiling for Coach #72

In November, Schuylkill and Lehigh Model Railroad Club Members installed a new ceiling in Coach #72, the home of the Schuylkill and Lehigh Model Railroad Layout.

This was accomplished at considerable expense, but cost were held in check as the installation was accomplished by club members. In addition to the ceiling, fans equipped with lights were also installed. The fans should circulate cool air in summer and warm air in winter makeing the Coach Car a comfortable place to observe model railroad trains in action. The new lighting arrangement also softens the glare from the over head floresient lights that are still in place but can be turned off during operating sessions.

The WK&S Excursion Train wrapped up its 2012 season with a "special" evening run on November 30th. And concluded the season with a "Santa Claus Special" on December 1 and december 2.

Great Turnout for the year-end sessions.

The Schuylkill and Lehigh Model Railroad was in operation on all three of these dates as it too closed out its season for 2012.

Overall, it was a very succesful season for the Schuylkill and Lehigh Model Railroad Club and the members look forward to 2013 with Coach #72 sporting new carpet, new fans and new lighting. We can hardly wait for the 2013 season to begin!
