Hi David,
just revisiting after a long absence and came across your thread.

Marshall Stull somewhere "back east" has put together 2 annual micro-layout gatherings. He may know some others in your area. His website is at http://www.smallmr.com Here is what they got up to earlier this year https://sites.google.com/site/smalllayoutdesignmeet/ looks like a fun time was had by all.

There is a Yahoo Group that is quite active that specialises in the smaller and micro layouts at https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/small-layout-design/info There might be someone there who can help put you in touch with like-minded modellers in the San Francisco area.

I have had a couple of my layouts appear on Carl's site over the years, and even hauled one of them to the US last year from oz.

Hopefully your pizza is getting close to being cooked by now,

Hi David,

I'm kinda new to this too and totally into Pizza Layouts as I also live in SF.

So far in my research I've found that decent model train related anything is as hard to find in SF as a cheap place to live (SFers will understand that joke).

I have found just a couple of shops that do trains and at least one train club that looks to be still active.

I can dig up the info if you're interested.

George, I regret I haven't been able to check this thread recently and respond to your kind offer. I know there are other "pizza" types in the area - there was a beautiful layout at the Just Trains Open House in Concord last year. I went there this year (today actually) and it wasn't there. I'd be interested in sharing ideas, stuff, photos, etc. with like-minded folks in the Bay Area. Maybe someday, if there's enough interest, we could have our own "meet."

There are quite a few train clubs in the greater Bay Area. The two stores I frequent are Just Trains in Concord and a place in San Jose (can't remember the name right now). Not many around but Just Trains has always met my needs.
David
