The Golden Horseshoe Chapter held a meeting on Saturday September 24, 2011 hosted by the Dundas Modular Railway Club. The meeting was at the club’s new headquarters in Dundas the Branch 36 Royal Canadian Legion.
The day started with John Jukes displaying his ONR “ HO” scale layout and then a clinic took place at the Legion. Gerry Wilkinson did a hands on clinic on scenery leading the group in carving the face of the rock on a mountain, making some hills on the top and then applying plaster cloth, ground foam and painting. Two hours went by in a jhurray and the guys really enjoyed the clinic.
In a discussion afterwards, those present said they liked the format of having one layout on display before the clinic and then doing the clinic. At two we were done and the guys could head home. We will be doing our meetings this way for the immediate future anyhow.
Certificates of Appreciation were given to John Jukes and Gerry Wilkinson. David King, National Chair of Carm was present and addressed the group.
