May 11, 2013 Free-mo Setup in San Luis Obispo, CA

A group in San Luis Obispo, CA. has been working on establishing a Railroad Museum ( for the last 5 or 10 years. The museum is due to open in the Frieghthouse in San Luis Obispo in October of 2013. They have been working on restoring the freighthouse that was built in 1894. As part of the National Train Day celebration the museum sponsored an event at the freighthouse. Free-mo SLO organized a layout in the freighthouse. We had participants from San Luis, Norcal and LA Free-mo groups. The main room in the freighthouse is about 31 feet by 75 feet. Our layout used a space about 25 feet by 53 feet. This was a great venue with significant railroad history. This will likely be out last opportunity to setup in this location, by October 2013 there should be a number of museum displays in the freighthous and the museum will be open for business.
