|CLINIC: Using Mobile Speakers for DCC Sound|
|DAY: Friday||TIME: 9:30-10:30a||ROOM: Auditorium|
|DESCRIPTION: Listen my children as you will hear the tale of two speakers fight ear to ear. And on the right we have the champ, but on the left we have a new stamp. Refreshed with new samples and things to learn, come one, come all for this is no turn!
This clinic will discuss using mobile (cellphone) loudspeakers for DCC sound. It will explore why most model railroading speakers fail to deliver, and how cellphone loudspeakers can be a valuable alternative. These speakers will also be available for purchase after the presentation.
|CLINIC: Hot Rod Chicken: A Story about the Chicken Car and Live Poultry Transportation|
|DAY: Friday||TIME: 11:00a-12:00p||ROOM: Auditorium|
|DESCRIPTION: The stock car is an iconic freight car that epitomizes the image of American railroading. However, the classic stock car has a little lesser-known cousin that proved to be equally as important: the chicken car. Created by the Live Poultry Transport Company, together, they revolutionized the transport of fowl meats not only to American markets, but international markets as well. This clinic will discuss the history of live poultry transport, the engineering of the poultry cars, and the design of this model for a potential large scale production.|
