The Mendota HO scale model layout is operational and has two loops to allow continuous running of trains. I had maintained the layout from 1997 to about 2003. I moved out of town in dec of 03 and Jim Carrow and Leo McCauley graciously volunteered thier time to maintain the tracks and continue converting couplers and all the other things that go along with operating model trains smoothly. I appreciate this help very much!!
THANKS Guys!!!!!!!!!
