While preparing for my open house in early November, I was experiencing some trouble bringing the system back online following a short. I would clear the short, but the Digitrax system would continue to report a short mode.

I finally found that if I took my A-A lashup of Walthers E8 diesels and tilted them off the rails for a moment, the system would return to service. I figured it was something amiss with the E8's.

The PRR Middle Division in HO Scale will be open on November 7th from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.

I am participating as part of a south-central Pennsylvania tour, which I organize, and we are open the weekend of November 7th-8th. The schedule is at http://svmr.pennsyrr.com.

In turn, the above tour is part of the annual PA/NJ/MD/DE Model Railroad Open House organized by Bruce Friedman. This year there are a record 137 model railroads open over the course of five weeks in November. Many of the railroads are Pennsy-themed. The full schedule is at http://modelrailroadopenhouse.com.

Hope to see you on the 7th!

In conjunction with the PRRT&HS annual meeting, the PRR Middle Division hosted its first open house on Sunday, May 4th.

The guest book contained 55 entries. There were a few additional spouses that were not entered. Thank you to all who attended and for your very positive feedback. Several inquired about op sessions, but that's a ways off yet!

A shout out to Dave Wartell who ran a switcher throughout the event to provide some movement on the Milroy Secondary. Thanks, Dave!
