1 Lawrence Model Railroad Club Newsletter June 2015 The Editor s Notes Last month, I posted pictures from the 2015 Lawrence Model Railroad Club Train Show and Swap Meet. This month, I have pictures from the Three Rivers Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma. This was a Saturday trip while spending a weekend during a business trip to Pryor, Oklahoma. The Three Rivers Museum is not a destination point, but if you are traveling south on US Route 69, it is definitely worth a stop. Besides the diesel switch locomotive (pictured), the museum collection includes 40 to 50 HO-scale models of steam and diesel locomotives in Missouri, Kansas and Texas (M-K-T) Railroad paint schemes. Other railroad items include: two largescale models of Midland Valley diesel locomotives, furniture and woodwork from the M-K-T Railroad station, a model railroad, and lots of other railroad items. The museum is housed in the Midland Valley Railroad Station in downtown Muskogee. I ve placed some additional pictures and a short description later in the newsletter. Last month, we agreed to make some changes to the HO-scale layout including: replacing a small module with a lift out section, going to one staging track, and associated track work and rearrangement of the modules to make this work. The agreement was to have weekly work sessions on Tuesday evenings in the shop area of Steve s Place. Of course, I haven t made any of these sessions, thus I can t report the progress. I was informed that people have been showing up to aid in the club s endeavor. The goal is to get all this work done in time to have the HO-layout operational for the 2016 Lawrence Model Railroad Club Train Show and Swap Meet. Again this month, I received a letter from someone wanting to sell some model railroad items. I ve listed the items and contact information in the newsletter. We need to have a discussion at the next meeting whether these unpaid solicitations should be published in the newsletter. The June meeting will feature a business session, a talk by Randy Van Schmus, and a work session. Gregory Ohlmacher Newsletter Editor Next Meeting: June 9, 2015, 7:30 P.M. at Steve s Place - drive east on 31 st Street from Iowa Street (see map)

3 Three Rivers Museum, Muskogee, Oklahoma The Three Rivers Museum is located in the Muskogee Station for the Midland Valley Railroad. Below are a few pictures of the outside of the station. I didn t get any pictures of the collection inside the museum. Behind the museum in an area that must have been a train yard at one time, the museum has an Alco S2 from the Midland Valley Railroad Co., Kansas, Oklahoma & Gulf Railway Co. and Oklahoma City Ada Atoka Railway. It is located in a fenced enclosure, but the docent let me and another couple in to have a closer look at the switch engine. The museum had repainted the locomotive and the general condition was good for a locomotive that is sitting outside. Below are a few pictures of the locomotive. June 2015 Newsletter Page 3

5 Across the street from the Three Rivers Museum is the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. The Hall is housed in a Frisco freight station with caboose behind the building. Below are some pictures of the freight station: N-Scale Items for Sale I received a letter from Bill Semanko of Junction City who is selling a number of N-scale items (listed below).

6 Program and Map Business Meeting: The discussions will include: HO-scale layout revisions A report on the progress of the revisions will be presented. Three working sessions occurred on Tuesdays last month. The work area was cleared, and some modules were moved from storage. Rolling containers We have an estimate. We need to check the diagrams to make sure that all modules will fit in a container. We would like to have one of the general containers made before having the others made. Website domain We will discuss renewing the website domain with Go Daddy Presentation: Randy Van Schmus will present a talk on his efforts to improve his HO-scale layout. Randy has been redoing the wiring and doing several modifications to remove the need to crawl under the layout. His goal is to make the layout portable, possibly to a future train show. He will share some tricks he discovered to make model railroading easier. Work Session: After the business meeting and presentation we will adjourn to the work area to continue work on the HO-scale layout. June 2015 Newsletter Page 6

The Topeka Model Railroaders have graced our show with their layout since the first Train Show in Lawrence. More information on the Topeka Model Railroaders can be found at: Let s extend kudos to the Topeka Model Railroaders for their help with the 2015 Lawrence Model Railroad Club Train Show and Swap Meet. Their aid was greatly appreciated. The photographs were taken by Jack Rosenfield. LMRR Club meets at 7:30 P.M. on the 2 nd Tuesday of the month.
