All are welcome at our annual Members Day. As usual, this special day will see lots of activity, with numerous opportunities to photograph and ride rarely operated historic railroad equipment! For our members, there will be some extra special operations. Bring the family and enjoy a picnic lunch in the museum's Laflin Park, and prepare for a full day of historic electric railroad operations.

Annual Pumpkin Patch Festival

After listening to input from many Pumpkin Patch visitors, we have worked closely with our Rotary Club partners to make this year's event better than ever! This year's Pumpkin Patch will feature an expanded array of fun activities for the whole family, with no price increase from last year. If you haven't attended our Pumpkin Patch Festival in recent years, come on out and experience what's new! This year's Pumpkin Patch Festival takes place over three weekends in October: October 13-14, 20-21, and 27-28.

We Need Your Help

Restoration of Sacramento Northern interurban combine 1005 is the signature project of our talented restoration shop volunteers. The museum is currently soliciting donations for one of the final steps of this work - installation of replica historic pressed glass windows. Authentic replicas of these windows are being created by a midwestern artist for installation on SN 1005. Donations of any size will enable us to fund production and installation. When making your donation, please indicate "Restricted Fund 007." Thank you for your support!

  • This place is excellent for a short day trip and completely affordable. All of the volunteers were very nice, family oriented and extremely knowledgeable about the history and the cars themselves, making the experience much more than just checking out old trains.

  • Great historic trains...friendly conductors...fun way to spend a Saturday! There's a museum, cafe, gift shop, etc. Loved the pumpkin patch...highly recommend this half day adventure for the young and old!

    — Terri S. (Granite Bay, CA)

  • Great place to go especially if you or your kid loves trains. Lots of senior citizens enjoying themselves too. They have electric trains and electric street cars. Go check it out! Cheap fun day especially if you bring your own picnic lunch.

    — J D. (San Francisco, CA)

  • I had a WONDERFUL time visiting this museum. The museum is a Heritage Railroad and the second largest electric museum on the West Coast. I've now visited a number of streetcar/trolley/interurban museums in the Mid-West, New England, East Coast and Ontario, and this collection rates highly in my book.

    — Peter G. (San Mateo, CA)

  • Great place to come visit if you or your child love electric trains. Bunch of volunteers who are super passionate about trains will help, teach and tell stories. Train rides were great and we will return.
