Banks Open House – Sat September 22, 2012

August 15, 2012 – Since the Banks have their self-described "whimsical" layout in top running order because of all the hard work they did for the Four Club Tour, and, since many of you were working hard to put on the Four Club Tour and didn't get to visit the layouts, Randy and Jacquie have graciously consented to have an open house on Saturday September 22, 2012 starting at 2 pm. A lot has been added and upgraded since their last open house, you don't want to miss it!

Entertrainment Junction

August 15, 2012 – Last Saturday, August 11, 2012, eight ILSR members visited Entertrainment Junction north of Cincinnati. The program of continual improvement means that there is always a lot to see that is new. It was the first time that most of us had seen the on-site hobby shop; it was an excellent G-Scale shop with many other items also. Many areas of the train layout have been improved and a G-Scale amusement park is being added on the second level.

After the EJ tour, some of us visited the beautiful Cincinnati Union Terminal for a railroad memorabilia show and sale. We also toured Tower A to watch the busy rail yard next to CUT. Excellent trip! Thanks, James.
