Railroad Days in Fullerton

Railroad Days 2014 on May 3 & 4 in Fullerton was a great community event, drawing families and rail fans to celebrate the region's historic rail connections and modern train developments. Among the most popular attractions were Disneyland Railroad's Marsh Locomotive #4, two BNSF locomotives, including a brand new "green" engine; and three private cabooses.

Throngs also packed the 13,000-square-foot tent where kids of all ages were captivated by a dozen model train layouts in various scales, as well as the scenic garden railroad.

Southern California Railway Plaza Association sends a huge thank you to our sponsors and the more than 50 participants for helping make it possible for us to present our 14th free family festival. Hats off to the following:
