About

Railroad Days 2012, is set for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 5 & 6, at the Fullerton Train Station in Fullerton, California.

Mission

The Southern California Railway Plaza Association (SCRPA) is a volunteer organization focused on the promotion of educational programs, activities, and venues for people of all ages, dedicated to the preservation of the rail heritage of Southern California.

Description

After a three-year hiatus in Fullerton, Railroad Days is returning to the mainline and is expected to be bigger than ever. Community supporters and regional railroads have stepped up in large numbers to create an expansive Railroad Days 2012. The FREE event, now in its 12th year, is presented by the Southern California Railway Plaza Association to honor Fullerton's founding and historic rail connection with extensive train exhibits and tours, a scenic garden railroad, and more than 7,000 square feet of layouts created by 14 modular groups in all scales -- Z to G -- to delight families and rail fans of all ages. See you there!

Railroad Days sponsors include BridgeMasters; Coast Rail Services; Godfrey, Godfrey, Lamb & Ortega LLB; The Grainger Foundation; Heroes Bar & Grill; McCoy Mills Ford; Morningside of Fullerton; The Old Spaghetti Factory; The Orange County Register and The Wilson W. Phelps Foundation.

 An all-star lineup of featured participants will provide rail equipment for tours, including: Disneyland Railroad's Presidential Coach “Lilly Belle,” an observation car named for Walt Disney’s wife, Lillian. The elegant Victorian-décor car will be combined for the first time since 1974 with Carolwood Pacific's coach for passengers and baggage that was designed by Disney Imagineers at Walt’s request.
