We hope everyone is well. Even with covid going on our signal crew has managed to continue installing signals. All of them work just like in the real world. Even our semaphores work. Continued work is going on to finish the implementation of LCC (Layout Command Control) be sure to stay tuned for some video and other updates. Until then, be safe and be well.

Good Morning from the Tehachapi Loop!
If headed out, be aware traffic is slowed down due to maintenance of way work. They are replacing old wood ties with new concrete ties from Tehachapi to Keene. The museum in town is also closed until the California covid lift. If looking for exciting rail Fanning, drive north on the 99 before Pixley at Western Milling to watch some old engines work long feed trains.

Just sharing some projects a few of our members are working on. Take Frank Sele who has been featured in several model railroad publications for his work. A note from Frank,
I've been working on two structures. The first is a model of Edison Steam Plant #3 near downtown LA built in 1906 (?). It still stands and is part of the old Pabst brewery complex that is now an artist colony. The other structure is a model of the Greenwood Mass. B & M station also from 1906 (I think). It was moved to an amusement park (Treasure Island a bit north of Boston). The park was designed by one of the Disneyland designers (a train circled the park) but the park failed due to the short tourist season. One account says the station burned down.

Hi, I have been a fan of the Pasadena Model Railroad Club/Museum for many, many years even though I live in Illinois! I would like to find out if the Museum has any coffee mugs available for purchase like the one in a picture you have posted on here or if any other coffee mugs might be available (I collect specialized coffee mugs and a model railroader for almost 60 years now)? Please let me know as soon as possible on here or by private message!
I hope everyone at the club is doing well and keeping safe. See you all soon once this craziness is over.
Can't wait to attend this week's open house and take some nice footage. Just wanted to share what I captured from Hara in Japan!
I wanted to share this to your store in case this is something you'd be interested in. It's a Kickstarter for HO Scale Old West buildings.
Hi Pasadena Model Railroad Club. Thank you for an absolutely perfect tour and your hospitality tonight. We felt very welcome even though you have an open house in a short time
Very cool., boyfriend is interested!
I thought I saw elsewhere you were closed for a hour or two for lunch tomorrow....can you please confirm or are you open all the way through from 1:00 to 5:00 (or 6:00?).
