Handouts from my clinics
 
I presented two clinics at the NMRA convention in Anaheim. Below are the clinic titles and descriptions. The clinic handouts are available as Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files.

Layout Design from the prototype

This clinic covered the keys to understanding how fidelity, scope, and functional layout requirements help define and make practical model railroad layout designs inspired by the prototype. Download clinic notes, which include references to articles and information sources.
 

Creating an Operating Session 
This clinic described how personality, interaction, and balance are the keys to engaging operating sessions on model railroad layouts. Download the clinic notes, which also discuss the role of railcar distribution, transportation of cars in trains, and control and communications form the basis of an op session. References for additional reading are included.
