Special Theme Days: 1960s - 1970s - 510 Families

Special Theme Days: 1960s – 1970s

Celebrate special Theme Days to highlight certain types of trains every 4th Sunday of the month. Some of those trains can’t be seen every day.

Today’s theme: 1960s – 1970s. The heavy competition from trucks and airlines forced many familiar railroads to merge to fight their losses (‘Fallen Flags’). A horsepower race with locomotives started the replacement of the first generation diesels.

 

A visit to 10,000 square foot museum of operating model trains provides an inexpensive, fun-filled outing for young and old, with plenty of room for youngsters to stretch their legs and expend energy as they follow trains along the 200+ feet of public walkway.

The highly-detailed model train layouts represent prototypical scenery in Northern and Central California. Both freight and passenger trains typical of the steam era through modern day diesels. The three main modeling scales are O scale (1:48), HO scale (1:87) and N scale (1:160).
