    Fullerton Railroad Days 2008: May 3 & 4

    The posters are up for Fullerton Railroad Days. This is a terrific event that takes place at the Fullerton Railroad Station (near the Spaghetti Factory, if you know where that is). This year it's May 3rd & 4th, from 9-5.

    Oh, and did I mention it's FREE?

    Disneyland will be sending the Fred Gurley steam engine, which, if like the last couple years, will be available for people to climb inside and have an engineer explain the controls to you, as well as pose for photographs.

    There are usually several train cars/engines available to walk through, etc. Also, and this is one of my favorite things - several model railroading groups set up massive model railroads for you to check out. One of the most stunning, IMHO, is the Lego group.

    Here are a couple images from last year:






    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Fullerton Train Days
    Fullerton California Train Station

    A
    full array of railroad layouts, vendors, food, live entertainment and DISNEYLAND RAILROAD equipment. This is the only train show in the world to host genuine Disney steam locomotives!

    The public is invited to get close and personal as the engine is cold. Actual crew members from Disneyland will be on hand to answer questions and spin stories of highballing around the Magic Kingdom.

    The Carolwood Society will have its booth next to the engine display. It will be staffed by our co-founders Michael and Sharon Broggie.

    Free admission and parking. Come early. Show opens at 10 am until 6 pm.

    That looks awesome ... and Spaghetti Factory ... YUMMY!!!

    I remember they used to have the Model Trains at the Antelope Valley fair. We would spend most of our time in there.

    Do they have model train experts there? I've been trying to get my trains appraised for insurance purposes, and haven't been able to find anybody who knows what they are worth. All I know is they were my grandfathers when he was a kid.
