  • 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.

    — Alison E. (Fairfield, CA)

  • 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)

  • I've been posting and recommending this place to everyone. Thank you for a top notch experience and wonderful volunteers who love what they do there! We became members so we can come back many times.
