Our Stone Soup appearance was a big hit for many
   Grover Beach recently held their annual event,  Stone Soup, and the SLOMRA made their first  appearance. The street fair with musical  entertainment at two small stages was well attended  and it seemed that most people came through the  community center to check out the model trains we  had display. Excellent weather probably contributed to  the event’s draw as well. 
   We debuted two transitional HO modules and had a  total of 11 HO modules running. We also had four N  scale modules, one being the newly built fair module  making a second appearance. Our recently  remodeled Fitzgerald Valley Railway made it show  debut as well. And Stuart Young brought his battery  powered, remote control trains which was a bit hit for  the kids, as well as for Stuart.
Brain and Janek ran many of the HO trains; this being Brian’s first show with the SLOMRA and his first time running DCC engines. Photo to the right: Stuart entertains the children with three loops of HO battery powered, remote controlled trains.
Two shows for January    It will be a busy January for the SLOMRA  with an out of town show and our annual  show at the Oceano Depot.     We will be at The Great Train Show, in  Anaheim, on the weekend of January 10th  and 11th to be held at the Anaheim  Convention Center. Our group was given  space in the middle of the convention last  year and we received great exposure.     Our annual Model Railroad Days at the  Oceano Depot will be held the weekend of  January 24th and 15th. Each day, the depot  will be open from 10am to 4pm.      There will be the Glenn Anderson  Memorial Free Raffle; which will give a train  set away at the end of each day. All kids  under the age of 18 will be given a ticket.      There is no fee to attend the event. 
Plenty to see for all ages at the Oceano Depot..
