They are all neat but the Fahrenheit 451 was always very cool. I loved the rounded shape and the drop down stairway.

It has been done in Lego by AFOLs a number of times. This is one of the best versions - http://www.heinerberg.homepage.t-online.de/schweb.htm

This is awesome. It would make a wonderful steampunk project. It reminds me of Disneyland’s Jules Verne, steampunkIsh, “Tomorrowland that never was”.

Mattie Miracle Walk Event Update

Rich Schamus
 

All,
It is with a sad heart that I inform you that the physical event is canceled for this year.

Vicki (the event runner) will be holding a"virtual" walk this year, and hopes that we will join her next year, 16 May, 2021.

The short story is that Arlington pulled all permits for events right now.



If you want to join the event virtually, please go to the Mattie Miracle FB page for details.

Re: Manassas Heritage Railway Festival June 6, 2020

Think I replied in the old Yahoo group, but since that switched over to just being email it hasn't always worked for me.

I plan to attend this event, should be bringing my two houses, the car dealership, and an assortment of other trains and road vehicles. I might also be bringing a diner restaurant MOC if it gets built by than, but as usual, I can leave some stuff out if we don't have enough space.

I know it is a little early for track plans, but any chance we will be using long curves at this event? Finally got my streamlined steamer running good, it makes normal 9v curves just fine, but I think it would look amazing going around some wide radius ones.

All,

WamaLTC has been invited to display at the 26th Annual Manassas Heritage Railway Festival on June 6, 2020 from 10 am to 3 pm.

I filled out the application but have not received a confirmation yet.

I want to start planning now. Please let me know if you plan to participate and what you are thinking about bringing. Remember we usually have high club participation and space is limited so be selective with you what you want to bring so that everyone has the opportunity to participate.

Thanks,

Bob Hayes
