Southern California Railway Plaza Association sends its appreciation to all the families, rail fans, sponsors, exhibitors and vendors who took part in Railroad Days 2016 -- including many who arrived by train at the depot.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS!

Without SCRPA's wonderful organizing committee and member volunteers,
Railroad Days could not happen. From the Friday setup through our two days
of welcoming guests, managing exhibits and hosting displays, we had more
than 50 members who gave their time and energies to make 2016
the most successful in the organization’s 16 years of presenting this event.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for another great year: May 6 & 7, 2017 !

The Disneyland Resort C.K. Holliday locomotive was named for Cyrus Kurtz Holliday,
founder of the Atchison & Topeka Railroad (later the Santa Fe Railroad in 1859).
It was built by WED Enterprises and joined the Disneyland Railroad on opening day, July 17, 1955.
