      This is the first call for layouts for the Banning Centennial Train Festival on October 19th and 20th.

      The Festival will feature railroad history and artifact exhibits, children's train rides, displays of current railroad and transit operations, model railroad presentations, hobby clinics, modular model railroads, a model train and railroad collectible/antique swap meet and exhibitor booths for historical, hobby and community groups.

      We're looking for operating layouts in any scale in the area in and around Banning, including Beaumont, Calimesa, Cherry Valley, Redlands and Yucaipa. The public generally is not familiar with Z scale so here is an opportunity to spread the word.

      Owners may elect to be open either or both days.

      As always, this will be a free, self-guided model railroad tour sponsored by my Yahoo group, Model Railroads of Southern California. The tours are designed to promote the hobby and allow layout owners to showcase their work.

      All owners need to do is operate their trains. I will do all the planning and publicity, as I have done for thirty-eight other tours since 2006.

      Please contact me OFF LIST at chiefbobbb@... if you are interested in displaying your layout or know someone who may be interested.

      Thank you.
