Hey all, just was wondering if there are any other Amtrak modelers out there in the LA area? Or anyone interested in running Amtrak Los Angeles Union Station operations. I have a HO station model and layout. I also am modeling the California HSR.

Some photos:





Still in the process of detailing the station!

Seems like it is a very niche thing to find other folks who model Amtrak and especially ones that do in the same geographic region. Even if folks aren't into model trains per se, but are interested in the operations, the LA op session can be a lot of fun. (I think anyway!)

There is also a video showing some of the trains coming and going on youtube.

That is quite a spectacular layout. Do you have an open house every Xmas? Looks like it is worth a special trip!

Thanks, Alice. Yes, it is open once a year when they light our street, usually the Second Sat in Dec. Last year we had lots of visitors, but it was a real challenge to find enough people to run the trains.
