Seacoast Division of the National Model Railroad Association is running their Derry Fun Night program again in 2017/2018. The program is held the second Friday night of each month, 7:00-9:00pm, at the Marion Gerrish Community Center, 39 West Broadway, Derry, NH.

 

Erich Whitney’s story about what happens when the wrong type of “Engineer” climbs into the cab of a 100 ton Chinese-built Mikado (2-8-2) steam locomotive and goes on an 8 mile run along the Connecticut River. Included is a quick lesson on how a steam locomotive works with Russian valve gear and a discussion of the trip and my overall thoughts on the experience.

 Always a part of the program is Model Showcase where modelers bring in the latest project they are working on to show and discuss.

 

If you are interested in model trains and would like to join other like-minded hobbyists from beginner to expert for a fun evening program come to Derry Fun Night the second Friday of each month.
