April 17, 2021–How to Make Decals
Presented by Charlie Treft

Charlie is doing this clinic to learn a new skill in Model Railroading. This idea is a great way for modelers to do a clinic presentation while learning something new and helping the rest of us.

 

May 15, 2021–Layout Wiring Part 2
Presented by Kevin Anderson

This will be a continuation of the February Clinic that Kevin gave with more information and covering more than the basics.

 

June 19, 2021–How to Build a Quick & Easy Fleet of Track Cleaning Cars
Presented by Jim Wanlass, MMR

Whether you need one or a fleet of track cleaning cars, this method is quick and easy. The hardest part is gathering the materials which will be provided for you. In this Virtual, Hands-on Clinic, follow along by building your own. If you would like the materials mailed to you, send your address to me jamestowntrains@gmail.com and they will be sent the old fashioned way, through the mail, a week or two before the clinic. Let me also know which scale you will building it in. You need to provide your own boxcar, drill and epoxy.

 

TBD

 

TBDUnion Pacific Turbines

TBDMulti Mini Clinics

We will be starting our multi mini-clinics. We will have one on using an air brush with Blaine Holbrook and two others going on simultaneously. Rotating every thirty minutes or so. Stay tuned for more information.

 

 


As the Clinic Coordinator I look at what this requires and realize we all can contribute to our clinics. I started with a sheet of plywood with my father back when I was a child and since then have done so much, especially in the last few years. We all have skills and experiences that we can share. Being retired from the Education profession also has shown me that what I have done in the past can help someone else looking for an answer. I will call upon all of you to share what you have learned, because we all have a love of trains.
