This would be an excellent chance to see the most recent winners of model contests at the SPH&TS convention last month. Greg Hodges (Freshwater) won the steam locomotive category for the 6th year in a row. He made a wonderfully detailed MT2 in HO scale. Tom Bethune (Arcata) won the color photograph contest with his view of the Bakersfield roundhouse at dawn in the 1970s. And Wes Fulton (Blue Lake) won the caboose and freight car contests and came in third in the passenger car category. His caboose featured a complete interior and removable roof. The freight cars were flats with PMT trailers. The passenger car was an SP dome with complete interior including interior wall murals.
Come and see these and many other excellent models at this open house.
