Re: Models to Naperville

Brian Termunde

Just a quick comment on the below. I work at a hotel, and I would not depend on the fact that the room is near the Front Desk and the Restaurant.

This is for two reasons, we can be rather busy (as can the foodies), and simply may not notice someone entering the room (now breaking down the doors, that's probably another story! <G>). The other reason is that we do not always know WHO is supposed to be able to access any particular room (meeting room that is). Someone could, if they gained access to the room, walk out with every model there, and the Front Desk staff might not know to say anything about it, as we have people setting up and breaking down meeting rooms all day and night.

I would have the hotel lock the room, and provide them with the authorized people that can access the room, that way security (and the Front Desk staff, if they are informed) know who is permitted to access the room.

We seldom have problems, but it is better to be safe then sorry! After all, you all worked hard on those steam era freight car models (whew!!! I was afraid that I wasn't going to be able to have the obligatory S/E F/C content! <G>), and we do want to keep them safe.

Take Care!

John, models are simply left in the display room.
There is always someone there while the doors are
open. A few things have been damaged but I have not
heard of any thefts. After hours the room is locked
up. It's right off the lobby and restaurant so it's
impossible to enter the room without anyone seeing.
Models have to be removed on Saturday evening.
