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..
