Generations come together at annual model railroad show

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 it on."

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.
