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.
CLOCKWISE from the top: An overall view the layout with N scale to the right and the HO in an “L” formation in the back. Stuart entertains the children with three loops of HO battery powered, remote controlled trains. 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.
