Model Railroading

Derry Fun Night

September 7, 2018

 

Seacoast Division of the National Model Railroad Association is running their Derry Fun Night program again in 2018/2019. 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.

Big Boys and Big Electric Trains: Operating Antique Trolley Cars

Building on the last Derry Fun Night presentation by Erich Whitney on operating a full size steam locomotive, Fred Hessler briefly relates his experiences with locomotives and his “conversion” to become a motorman operating antique trolley cars.  He will also present the basics on what makes a trolley car go, and, just as importantly, what makes it stop.

 

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.
