Model Railroads of Southern California’s forty-fourth layout tour takes place on Saturday, August 15. This will be a self-guided tour of two home layouts in the West Orange County area. This is a free event and you may bring relatives and friends. One layout is Bob Grech’s HO scale Western Pacific. This is a fictional freelanced version of the Western Pacific Railroad modeled between the years 1935-1940. The layout measures 25.5 x 17.5 feet with a 13.5 x 6 foot peninsula, featuring an around-the-room walk-in configuration.Website: http://s59.photobucket.com/albums/g300/engineerbob/ The second layout is Joel Morse’s N scale New York, Ontario & Western. The layout loosely models the prototype’s main line up and over the rolling hills surrounding the rural towns of Walton and Sidney, along with the Delhi Branch, and a new connection with the DL&W mainline at (fictional) Shellysburg, NY, in the spring of 1954.

Bob's layout is located in Fountain Valley and will be open from 11am until 6pm. Joel's layout is located in Garden Grove and will be open from 10am until 3pm. For more information and specific location/directions contact Bob Chaparro at chiefbobbb@verizon.net
