EVENT HIGHLIGHT: The SLOMRA had a fine, fun day participating in the Harvest Festival in Arroyo Grande…for a photo recap, click here:
This group was originally incorporated as the SLOMRC back in the early 1990s. In 2006, we were restructured as a non-profit organization. Since it’s restructing, we have attempted to meet the goals of our mission statement in new and interesting ways. We are governed by our bylaws, the link for which can be found below.
Our group maintains a substaining club membership with the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA) and has assisted with local NMRA events. Because of our location, we are part of the Pacific Coast Region of the NMRA. We also work closely with the Central Coast Railroad Festival to add the modeling of trains to the interest of all rail fans.
We continue to educate and train our members in all aspects of railroading through monthly meetings, train related events and other opportunities. Although we incorporate any scales members might want to exhibit, the majority of our modules cover HO and N scales. We are open to other scales and in the past we have had temporary setups of G, Fn3 and O scale at our shows. Members also host work sessions in their garages.
