On Saturday, July 22, The Men’s Club took a field trip to the Murphy Auto Museum in Oxnard. Not the largest collect of older vehicles, but what a variety of well maintained and perfectly restored rolling stock. The collection of miscellaneous garage items was extensive; signs, 3D pictures and statues, go-carts, bikes, tools, motors and old Sun Tune-up rolling equipment. The collection included trailers for the campers and motorcycles for the daredevils. In the middle of all this was an H O train layout the size of which was truly amazing. It was built and maintained by a club of true train enthusiasts. The detail of the entire display was unbelievable to say the least. If you enjoy cars and would like to see a massive H O train layout, this is the place to go. The group enjoyed a seafood lunch at Andria’s on the Ventura Harbor. The view of the harbor form the outside patio was spectacular. The cool weather and slight breeze made for a nice break from our triple digit temps.
