The Cincinnati Historical Society and CUT Museum Center need volunteers to help restore and rehabilitate the historic B&O/Duke Energy/CUT 3-rail O scale layout, as well as eventually a large portion of the S scale Cincinnati in Motion layout.
They need volunteer modelers right now, especially for the tedious task of removing snow effects from all the buildings and landscapes, and also to inspect, clean and adjust all rolling stock, locos, and likely layout wiring. The O scale layout is now in its own area, formerly the flat boat exhibit area. They wish to have this up and running by the holidays, so time is of the essence. This is a great opportunity to help restore these two special layouts.
Volunteers are welcome from one day to many, and will work under the direction of Rick Massie, Coordinator of the Model Railroad Exhibits at CUT. All volunteers need to complete an on-line volunteer application at /www.cincymuseum.org/volunteer. Make sure you check the “Holiday Junction Trains” and “Cincinnati in Motion Exhibit” categories within the General Interest section. Once you complete the on-line application, please notify Rick via his email alias at 3147450329. Rick will then look for your name in the system and contact you. See also the attached Holiday Junction volunteers flyer.

Cincinnati Division 7, one of the many very active Divisions in the NMRA, recently donated $10,000 to the NMRA to help pay for additional scanning for the NMRA Online Archives, otherwise known as the Diamond Club. To date over 6,000 slides, 19,000 negatives and 1,600 large-format drawings have been scanned, all paid for with Diamond Club donations.
The Division is known for its many and varied community programs, which include donating large numbers of model railroad books to public libraries around their area. In addition, they sponsor hugely successful train shows that generate the income that allows them to continue their generousity. The Division has donated over $60,ooo to the NMRA over the past 30 years.
The NMRA greatly appreciates Division 7's gift. THANK YOU!
