THE TEHACHAPI PASS by the La Mesa Model Railroad Club.
The La Mesa Model Railroad Club operates the Southern Pacific – Santa Fe Tehachapi Pass Layout. This exhibit is a highly accurate replica of Southern California’s busiest single track mountain railroad and is HO scale.
The Tehachapi Pass runs through the Tehachapi Range of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is famous for the Tehachapi Loop, where because of the steep mountain grade the railroad was designed in a spiral loop. You can see this replicated on the mezzanine level of the Tehachapi layout.
Everything on this layout operates to scale. Including the types of trains run on the track, the times of operation and the speed.
