    We were able to get Bruce's layout drops in and half the layout has working track power, the other half has power, but also has some sort of short. Planning on

Group Description

Narrow minded, want to be?

Never Done and Always Changing, the California South Coast Modular (CSC) On30 Model Railroad group's mission is to bring the joy of narrow gauge trains to all ages at train shows. On30? On30 means the models are O scale (1:48 running on 32mm gauge track). The 'n'signifies Narrow gauge, 30 means 30 inches or 2.5 feet rail spacing.

Many groups in other states and several other California On30 Modular groups build to a common standard that allow us to combine operations when displaying at shows and meets. Currently, CSC frequently operates in conjunction with the California Central Valley Modular(Yahoo group: On30CCVMod) and the California Central Coast Modular (Yahoo group: CCCModOn30).

Because of the larger size of On30; many hobbyists lack the necessary space to have an interesting layout at home. The solution for most of us came in the form of a "modular" or portable layout.

Our group was setup as free form modules, but with connectivity the key to our standard. This includes physical and electrical with operational as the key. Our group is setup so we can display at train shows in Southern CA between San Diego and Los Angeles areas. The CSC meets mainly at Train Shows and events in Southern California and at times plans fun runs.

The time period is set from the late 1800's to the 1930's. The track products used for the modules are On30 flex track and turnouts. Using Peco or Micro Engineering products is not a requirement but adhering to the overall tie/rail height and code 100 rail between modules is needed to ensure smooth operation. The code 100 rail measure 3/16ths of an inch from the underside of the ties to the top of the rail.
