Model railroading on a big scale

Pat McCarthy (above) engineers his 1/8-scale model locomotive on his 14.5-acre Big Creek & Southern Railroad layout in rural Pleasant Hill. Pat and several fellow model railroading enthusiasts began building the layout in 1992 and continue to enjoy working on it. Five miles of track, working railroad signals, bridges, a tunnel, miniature buildings, surround the countryside beside the tracks to make the railroad layout more realistic. Pat spent 30 years with Consolidated Freightways and 11 years with the Lee’s Summit School District and now enjoys his retirement as the proprietor of the Big Creek & Southern Railroad.

Thousands lose
power in storm

...Thousands of homes in the Kansas City area lost power last week after severe thunderstorms brought 60 to 70 mph winds and over 2-1/2 inches of rainfall to the area.
...A Kansas City Power & Light spokesperson said as many as 110,000 customers were without electricity after the storm hit a little after 2 a.m. on Friday and warned that it could take several days to get all of their customers restored.
...KCP&L said 1,227 Pleasant Hill customers were still without power at mid-morning on Friday.
...Over 600 linemen and 300 tree crew members were brought in from eastern Kansas, eastern Missouri and Iowa to help KCP&L crews restore power.
...KCP&L says its priority is restoring power to critical services like hospitals, police and fire stations and water treatment plants and substations and primary lines that often serve thousands of customers. After that, crews move on to lateral lines that usually serve hundreds of customers and finally secondary lines that affect a dozen or more customers.
