Come see the trains! - Slim Gauge Guild Model Railroad Club
The Slim Gauge Guild Model Railroad Club in Pasadena is having its semi-annual Open House this Sunday, June 3, 2007 (10am-7pm) and Tuesday, June 5, 2007 (6pm-10pm). Admission is FREE!

We have attended this event several times over the years and always find it fun. Even better, you can use the Metro Rail lines to take you right to the event. The Del Mar station of the Metro Gold Line is right across the street.
For example, from here in Van Nuys, we can take the Orange Line busway to the Red Line station in North Hollywood, the Red Line to Union Station and the Gold Line to Pasadena. Talk about a railroad adventure! (SMILE) A Metro Day Pass is only $3, going up to $5 on July 1st, so use this chance to enjoy a cheap ride on the train.

If you go one more stop on the Gold Line, you are 1 block away from Old Town Pasadena, where you can explore, shop and eat. We usually have lunch at the Crown City Brewery, which is in the same building as the club.
We plan on arriving around 10 AM, as we have another commitment in the late afternoon. Join us for trains, and lunch, if you like or explore more of Pasadena before heading home.
