From KSBY.com: Generations come together at annual model railroad show
Okay, weekend is over...but mark this down as it is an annual event.
A local train depot was opening up its doors this weekend, and no tickets were needed.
The 6th annual Model Railroad Days was held at the Oceano Depot.
The free event featured operating model trains on display and unique artifacts in the depot.
Organizers say the intent of the event is to share the history of
trains and love of modeling, while also bringing generations together.
Michael Mickens, San Luis Obispo Model Railroad Association
secretary, says, "A lot of people love it 'cause it's generational. We
get a lot of grandparents bringing their grandkids in. A lot of
grandparents want to give their trains to their grandchildren and pass
Mickens also says people can bring in their model trains and find out how much, if anything, they are worth.
The event is a fundraiser for the San Luis Obispo Model Railroad Association and the Oceano Depot Association.
