Layout Tours

There will be multiple self-driven layout tour opportunities during the convention, with layouts grouped so that a cluster of layouts can be comfortably visited in a 2-4 hour period from the convention hotel. Also, these self-guided tours provide a great opportunity to meet other modelers, and conversations in the car on the way to visit layouts frequently result in lasting friendships.

Attention Layout Owners!

If you have a layout and would be interested in showing it off during the convention, please contact Mike O'Dorney, Clear to the Coast 2020 layout tour chairman, at Layouts do not have to be "finished" - layouts under construction are often desired.

Layouts on Tour

Here's who we've lined up so far:

  • Pete Birdsong, MMR®
  • Dave Connery, MMR®
  • Dan Rom
  • Doug Smith
  • Walnut Creek Model Railroad Society
  • ... and more coming!

Operating Sessions

The Bay Area is home to many fine operations-oriented layouts. We will contact all registrants about op sessions, as the convention draws closer and the schedule firms up.

Getting There

All layout tours and operating sessions are self-guided, with carpooling encouraged.
