Mountain View Railroad Prepares for Train Run

Central California Coast Garden Railroad members gathered earlier in May to help our fellow member, Don Morgan, prepare his Mountain View Railroad for a multi-club train run later this month. The Mountain View Railroad is an impressive garden railroad with something for everyone to see and experience. Special thanks to Don for allowing us to contribute to the success of his planned event.
