The bridge

lacasse
 

So, forgive me for misunderstanding the recent vote. My impression was we were only talking about what would be on the bridge module we are considering. The vote was overwhelming in favor of retaining our current name and I agree.
Where do we stand on the prospect of the bridge purchase?
1) Are we going to get one.
2) Are we going to get our club name or logo engraved on it, or
3) Are we going to put a more generic name or a logo on it.

I dug into the archives and found the old newsletter from 1997 when we first did club shirts.
Our original shirts had #3 on the back with #6 on the front. The plain black lettering became a template for the lettering used on the club 4’ duckunder.

Choice two was suggested by John Valachovic and became the basis for the current logo we now use. Here is a screen shot John Henry sent.

Lets continue the conversation.

Hi Matt, it great to see you have found your way beck to modeling trains and I look forward to seeing you at shows in the future, when it is safe to do them again, Mike L.

I'm sorry for my delay in replying. My intent with the poll regarding the name change was to see if we wanted to change the club name, which would also impact what we put on the bridge module. Since we generally agreed to purchase the bridge, and the feeling is to not change our name, the next question is whether to put our existing logo or use the national TTrak logo on the bridge. Anyone have thoughts on that?

I personally would prefer the Red River Models bridge with the square TTrak logo, for $99. Brian has already indicated a mild interest (!) in building whichever module we get.

Geoff. I agree with the Red River bridge module. I think it is safe to say the majority is not interested in any name change. I like the TTrak logo in the center arch, is there any interest in also adding our club name on the bridge as well ? Perhaps; Albany, NY on the left side, TTrak in the middle and, N-Trak on the right. Just a thought, I am ok with just the TTrak logo in the middle arch, Mike L.

Regarding what logo to put on the bridge - my thought is that if we put three logos on, it won't look like a bridge and it will be quite cluttered. There is one picture of a logo crossing all three sections of the bridge at http://www.redrivermodels.com/t-store/t-bridge.html, towards the bottom. I'd vote for just one logo in the middle, either the TTrak logo or our club logo. Anyone else have a thought?

I agree with using the club logo.  It's good to be consistent with our "branding."
Cheers,

My preference would be use the club logo. Located in the middle.
