Out of an abundance of caution regarding Covid-19, I have decided to cancel all operating sessions for the foreseeable future, until the infection rate and/or threat level has been reduced.
My apologies to all that look forward to operating on my layout. But with the close physical quarters of 25-30 people in the layout room for 4 hours, and mostly people over the age of 60+ which is the highest risk group, I think you can understand why I just have to do this. I could not live with myself if one of my good model railroad friends whom I’ve known for years became seriously ill and/or died from it.
I personally am in that highest risk group due to my previous 2 heart attacks, so there is a good deal of self-concern / self-preservation also.
