We have just heard from the Randall Museum that the building department has given verbal approval to keep the train room and layout as they are. This does need to be confirmed in writing.
It appears that our layout will survive the Museum’s renovation that will start next year. It also means that the work that we have started to define a formal relationship with the Museum and to make the layout available to the public whenever the Museum is open can now go forward. We will also be trying to meet the Museum’s request by modifying the layout to create a new interactive element that let kids run a train when no club members are present.
This is a solid step in the right direction that we think will lead to a better experience for everybody. We will make further posts as this work progresses.
