Those of you who missed Mark Chase's presentation on Modeling a Soapstone Railroad at the last JRD meet will have the opportunity to hear him again. Mark will be speaking at the NRHS Rivanna Chapter meeting in Charlottesville on Tuesday July 17, 2012 at 7 PM. The meeting is held at the Elks Lodge in Charlottesville. A buffet dinner is optionally available at 6 PM for $14 during which Mark will have a slide show running.
Summary: We are fortunate to have here in Central Virginia such a diverse and
interesting railroad heritage to provide inspiration for our railfanning
and modeling. An example would be the unique and picturesque operations
of the railroads that once served the soapstone industry in Albemarle
and Nelson counties. My program examines Alberene Soapstone Company from
the perspective of a model railroader searching for an engaging theme
for a new model railroad.
