•   Rick Lull—Richmond Terminal. Rick’s HO-scale Richmond Terminal is based on the RF&P 
prototype from the wye at Acca to the Quantico area. It is a shelf style, multiple deck railroad 
with an almost 10-scale-mile main line that takes up the bulk of a large basement. When com-
pleted, the railroad will be fully signaled and CTC dispatched. This is the second version of the 
layout that Rick has built.

•   Mike Pulaski—Mohawk & Hudson. Mike notes that this is the second version of this layout. 
Mike started this version in January 2017. This is a proto freelanced layout set as a 1990’s era 
regional, running from Montreal to Oak Island, New Jersey. The layout is set in central New York 
state and is a double-deck design. There is scenery on about 60% of the layout. Mike’s layout 
includes two paper mills, one with a dedicated switcher.

  1. I see the September meeting is shown as the 15th. That's an exception to the normal second Saturday, which is the 8th, so I'm looking for confirmation. Not that my presence or absence is a big deal, but the 8th works for me while the 15th does not.
