Central Coast Railroad Festival
at Oceano Depot this year
Model Railroad Day
at the American
Legion Hall Post #136
Post Commander and SLOMRA member
Pete Gallagher (in the black shirt) answers
questions about the HO layout he and his
grandson Eli have been building.
The SLOMRA had setup special layouts
so young people could see them better. To

Once again, the SLOMRA and the Oceano Depot Association
(ODA) worked together to be a part of the Central Coast
Railroad Festival (CCRRF). The SLOMRA had several of their
N and HO modules on display as well as small Lionel layout.
Although the crowds were light compared to past years, there
were many first timers to the Depot and a few from out of town.
The ODA sold sodas and popcorn as well as their sale table
was out to help raise funds for maintenance work on the depot.
In the photo to the left, SLOMRA members JT and Larry watch
over the HO trains as visitors take photos and ask questions
about our modules and club operations and shows.
