HISTORY & MODELING COMMITTEE

If local history, rail history, train fascination or model railroading (any scale) interest you and you would enjoy fellowship with others who share these interests, we invite you to become a part of the growing HISTORY &  MODELING COMMITTEE.

Participation in the 16-year-old committee is a great way to become an active member of the Southern California Railway Plaza Association.

History & Modeling and Railroad Operations Committees meet jointly at 7 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month (except July and December) at UP lounge cars, Fullerton Train Museum. H&MC also holds railroad modeling sessions.

For more information, contact Dennis White (714-400-4939) or Harold Benash (714-525-6266) for directions or questions regarding the HISTORY & MODELING COMMITTEE.

RAILROAD OPERATIONS COMMITTEE

If you are a rail fan wanting to do more than sit in your recliner reading about railroad life, put down that train magazine and join SCRPA’s RAILROAD OPERATIONS COMMITTEE (ROC).

The group spends two Saturday mornings of each month at the Fullerton Train Museum, conserving SCRPA’s five historic rail cars.

Committee membership is open at no charge to all current Southern California Railway Plaza Association members. It’s a fun way to meet and talk trains with other buffs while helping care for and maintain an important part of Southern California’s railroading’s past.

Our rolling stock is displayed at the Fullerton Train Museum, 200 E. Santa Fe Avenue:

  • ATSF 999110, a Ce-1 cupola style way car built by American Car and Foundry in 1929
  • Union Pacific 3752, a CA-3 tall cupola style caboose built by Mount Vernon Manufacturing Company in 1942
  • Southern Pacific 4049, a C-40-4 bay window caboose built by Pacific Car and Foundry in 1961
  • Union Pacific 5001, an 85-foot Lunch Counter-Diner-Lounge built by American Car and Foundry in 1949
  • Union Pacific 6101, an 85-foot Dormitory Lounge built by American Car and Foundry in 1949

    All five cars are maintained and conserved to their in-service condition and open for public tours on the first and third Saturday of each month from 9 AM to noon. If you’re not already an SCRPA member, think about joining so you can participate in ROC -- working to conserve, maintain and keep these cars in top operating condition.

    The Railroad Operations and the History & Modeling committees also meet jointly at 7 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month (except June and December) at the UP lounge cars, Fullerton Train Museum.

    Come and join the fun!

    For more information, directions or questions regarding the RAILROAD OPERATIONS COMMITTEE please contact Chairman Stu Proctor, (714-870-6757).
