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 see more photos, click here.
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.
