      Model Railroads of Southern California’s fortieth layout tour takes place on Thursday through Sunday, October 10 through 13.

       

      This will be a free self-guided tour of twenty-two layouts and one historic toy train display at fifteen locations throughout San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara Counties, CA.  This tour is part of the Central Coast Railroad Festival (http://ccrrf.com/). Be sure to visit the CCRRF website for additional railroad events the same days as the layout tours.

       

      Four home layouts, three club layouts and one display are appearing for the first time on our tour program: George Gibson’s DK & Pacific Mountain Railway (HO & HOn3), Ed Morse’s garden railroad, Robin White’s R & P Railroad (N), the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum’s outdoor garden railroad, the Santa Maria Valley Railway Historical Museum’s Lionel and HO layouts, and Ken Lau’s 1935 to 1955 Marx toy train display.

       

      Altogether there will be eight HO layouts, two HOn3 layouts, four N scale layouts, two O scale layouts, one On30 layout, four garden railroads and one Fn3 layout.

       

      This is a free event and you may bring relatives and friends. The list of layouts with schedules and address appears below.  If you would like area maps for the tour and layout descriptions, please contact me OFF LIST at:
