Special to The PREVIEW
The July meeting of the Pagosa Springs Railroad Club will take place on Monday, July 14, at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church Parish Hall (just south of the hospital). At 6:30 p.m., the meeting will start with a very short business meeting, followed by artist Jeanie Lemmo giving a presentation on making trees for your model railroad or Christmas display.
Have you ever seen a model railroad with too many trees? Not likely. Good looking trees add a level of realism to a model railroad or a Christmas diorama. Commercial trees are expensive and not available locally.
Jeanie Lemmo, a local artist, quilter and crafter, has developed methods of rapidly producing good-looking trees suitable for any scale. These trees make populating a model railroad forest easy, fun and affordable. The methods are easy to learn and can benefit anyone building a model railroad, a diorama or a Christmas display.
The Pagosa Springs Railroad Club meets six times a year and explores railroading interests ranging from model trains to full-size trains and everything in between. Meetings are usually held the second week of every other month.
There is no charge and all are welcome.
