Railroad Modeller

Posted on 5 Nov 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The photo above is a rebuild project of one of our early MakerSpace members, Allan Clark.

Allan is a longtime model railway hobbyist who scratch-builds most of his stuff. With this particular locomotive rebuild in the photo he is working with some of our MakerSpace members to “draw and print” a replacement “sand box” using one of our 3D printers. Welcome to the modern world railway man!

Allan was one of roughly 15 model railroaders who showed up Saturday, November 4 to see what our Oceanside Community MakerSpace was all about and how their home railroads can benefit from a membership at OCM. Allan has already found one way.

Another of our early Members, Jim Bennett helped organize Saturday’s event and is committed to making the new Oceanside Model Railroaders group a permanent fixture.

Whether you want to take out a membership and work on a layout here because there’s no space left at your house, or just learn more about working with our 3D printer team, or getting some advice on the electronics side… If you’re into model railroad building… contact jim.bennett@shaw.ca
