Southern California Live Steamers
President's Message

All is going well at SCLS

9/7/2022 8:33:27 PM
As time passes and we all get a little older we also get more complacent and that is the number one factor why you may see items on this website don't get updated often. Rest assure interesting things are always happening at the club. The live steam miniature train hobby is a hands on hobby that all are members enjoy in varying aspects. Now that it appears we have learned how to safely deal with Covid-19 the club members are ones again enjoying the many maintenance and building projects that keep them entertained. Over the last few years we have had some new members join SCLS and live steam locomotives are running on the rails and that's a great thing. The diesel out line locomotives are the work horses of the club. They get the job done are relatively easy to maintain and are interesting models of what is run on full size railroads today. The new kid on the block is battery powered locomotives. The technology has really made some gains and this is a very cost effective way to injoy the hobby. A large part of SCLS involves giving the monthly public train rides and that is a fun way for the members to share our hobby with the public. It's also one way that socially the group has the feeling of a large family, if someone is not there the question quickly arises did anyone hear from them what are they up to. 
If you are interested in the live steam miniature railroad hobby please stop by and check out SCLS we are at the club on Tuesday after 10:00 am and of course on one of the schedule public ride days. This hobby is not a good fit for every one but for the few that it is, it's proven to be vary fulfilling and rewarding. 
SCLS President Tom Downing
