Oceano Depot 2012

Oceano Depot

The Oceano Depot Association's mission is to restore, preserve, and operate the former Southern Pacific Oceano Depot and other structures that have historical significance for historical, scientific, educational and recreational purposes for the benefit of the residents of and visitors to the Community of Oceano. The Association's numerous public displays include small HO and N scale layouts, a Southern Pacific boxcar, a Union Pacific caboose, produce crate labels, railroad paperwork, photos, tools and equipment. On Sunday the San Luis Obispo Model Railroad Association operated their modular HO layout. Smaller portable layouts in other scales were also operating.

Members of the San Luis Obispo Model Railroading Association are actively engaged in multiple modeling scales, including HO, N, O, On30, and G. Members working in other scales are also represented, and almost every scale may be found at their events and runs. Members have collaborated to build a modular layout in N scale, and they now have an operational HO modular layout as well. Website: www.slomra.org

A g-scale layout and some rolling stock were on display on the far side of the boxcar.

This HO layout is a permanent display in the caboose.
