Railroad Days 2014 will be held on May 3 & 4 at the Fullerton Train Station, 120 E. Santa Fe Avenue. Hours for the FREE community event are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, hosted by the

Tours of Disneyland Resort’s bright red Locomotive #4, Ernest S. Marsh, and three private cabooses lead the lineup of featured participants. A trackless train ride is free for ages 12 and younger, and the Welcome Center will have a pint-size model train layout that kids can operate.

In addition, we will offer more than 40 train-related exhibitors and displays, including 13,000 square feet of covered space packed with a dozen model train layouts in all scales – plus a scenic garden railway. The Welcome Center will feature vintage photographs and finely detailed models of historic train depots and scenes along the railways.
