First Thursday crew
First Thursday meeting. September 4, 2014

We are starting our regular thursday night meetings and this is the crew that showed up for the first meeting.

 

Fred Monsimer, Eric Zwirnman, Paul Liebzinski, Val Pistilli, Bill Howard, Alan Lee.
We pointed bricks along the front wall in anticipation of installing bathrooms.
You can see the lights in the ceiling are lit. Too bad they were blasted out by my studio strobe light to take the pictures!


In the first three months of 2014, the gears have been turning and GATSME moved closer to owning a building of its own. On April 10th, our journey came to an end when we went to settlement and purchased our building. We are grateful to everyone working for us.

Our building is located in the Borough of Rockledge, PA.

If all goes well with the rehabilitation/transfiguration of the building from a warehouse to a model Railroad Museum, we will be open in February and March to show off our space. We will have modular railroad set up to give an idea of the size of our regular railroad when construction starts.

Now that the building is ours, the club will turn all of its efforts to converting the building to our use. There will be plenty of work and new members are welcome to join us. The new member application has been posted to this site. In addition, we will begin a new fund raising drive.

You can contribute by check, PayPal, or credit card.

Thank you to all friends of GATSME! We have a home!
