As the Bay Ridge Model Railroad Club moves to its new home from Brooklyn to Kingston, we wanted to share this throwback poster from 1981. Earlier this week, the Brooklyn Reporter featured the model layout. Look for the article on our Facebook page.

Progress on the Door Installation on our Johnstown Traction Trolley Car no. 358. 
As the month of March wraps up, volunteers were busy at work on our trolley car. All the door panels have been painted, with one more set of doors left to be installed onto the car. These final set of doors, according to our Chief Mechanical Officer Harold Greenblatt and Master Mechanic Bill Wexler, will be installed next weekend. Upper door guides have also been cleaned and painted. 
Our 2019 season begins just left than a month away! To find more information on our museum, how to get there, and how you can get involved, visit our website at tmny.org

Our volunteers were busy again working on projects this weekend! 
One group worked on our R4 subway car no. 825. The car interior was finally emptied out of parts and large items, giving volunteers room to now begin prep work of the interior. 
Back in the shop building, another group worked on installing a third set of doors on our Johnstown Traction Co. car no. 358. Work there is progressing at a steady pace and should be completed by Opening Day in April. 
A huge thank you to all of our volunteers!

Today, we celebrate hard working people with missions, with goals, with dreams. Here at TMNY, our volunteers have worked hard over the years to build our museum into what it is and has always been: one that not only keeps on growing, but also keeps on uniting all communities. A place that continues to educates all, to preserves history, and to shares experiences.
