We are an HO scale model railroad club with a layout located in the freight room of a former Southern Pacific depot. Our layout is 100% DCC (Digitrax) controlled and models the Southern Pacific's coast line between Los Angeles and Portland in the early 1950s. The layout has over 400 feet of mainline on two levels of wall-mounted shelves and two peninsulas . Scenery is 100% complete but is constantly being upgraded in order to enhance visual and operational aspects.
