Now that are trick or treating season is over we are still here kicking at the railroad club. Progress has continued on the harbor portion of the layout. We will do a big update soon! The club also has an upcoming field trip to the HO club in harbor city. Fun news, we recently had the Los Angeles times visit and channel 5 news and Random Lengths Magazine want to run a story on us!
To the left we have club member Dan who is preparing schedules for Operations Night! What is operations night you might ask? Well it’s when club members drive trains according to schedules, freight deliveries, and routes. This is where we run trains as realistically as possible. We even have a clock timer to sync your schedule with! This all happens on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Come check it out November 21st!
Lomita Railroad Museum Family Day
The Lomita Railroad Museum had a wonderful turnout for their family day event and our club was happy to be a part of it! The lot was stirring with model railroads, food, entertainment, flea market goods, crafts, and of course families. The local N module club ‘Group 160’ with our members Joe, Frank and Wayne, setup a beautiful display running trains for onlookers to see. We want to thank the Lomita Railroad Museum for making this happen and inviting us to participate.
Aerial Photo of the Belmont Shore Railroad Club
Thank you to our friend and visitor Shaun Dover for taking the beautiful aerial photograph of the Belmont Shore Railroad Club building. Some noteable progress has been made with the painting of the staircases with hopefully the building getting a fresh coat some time in the near future.
Things continue to keep rolling along here at the Belmont Shore Railroad Club. Work has persisted on the harbor with some progress in wiring of the turnouts. Over the month of August we hosted a successful meet and greet with the Scale Trains club and we are thankful to have had the experience with them. Looking forward to many more fun experiences coming ahead at the Belmont Shore Railroad. Hope to see some new faces during our Saturday open run sessions from 12pm to 4pm. Come on down!
