TOOL BOXES STOLEN FROM GGLS MEMBER
March 27, 2017
On or about March 10, 2017, person(s) broke into the covered truck bed of our 2015 blue Chevy Silverado pick-up and removed two black and red Craftsman tool boxes along with machined and rough castings for the RRSC CP 173.
These tool boxes were filled with both a large collection of Craftsman tools and specials homemade-in short, all the tools necessary to repair our steam locomotives when in the field. The tool boxes also contained our contact information and boiler certificates from GGLS.
A police report was filled with the South San Francisco Police Department on March 12, 2017.
Should anyone contact you attempting to sell the tool boxes or contents, or if seen on Craig’s List or Ebay, please call:
Michael B. Smith at (415) 558-4536 or the South San Francisco police at (650) 877-8900 and reference police report No. 17-1515.
Thank you in advance.

Located in Tilden Park in the hills above Berkeley, California, the Golden Gate Live Steamers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit museum whose mission is to operate a miniature live steam railroad, to teach & promote model engineering craftsmanship for the benefit of our members and to educate the public on what live steaming & model engineering is all about.
We run a train carrying the public every Sunday from Noon to 3:00 pm, depending on the staffing & weather, and our station entrance is located just further and below the Redwood Valley Railroad's loading station.
If you have an interest in railroading, live steaming, home shop machining or model engineering, we would love to welcome you to our club. Please feel free to come to any of our monthly club meetings and introduce yourself. Our club meetings are usually held on the second Sunday of each month starting at 10 am but please check our club calendar for the actual dates.
Our club facilities include 7.5", 4.75" dual-gauge ground level track and a 1,100 ft high track loop consisting of 4.75", 3.5" and 2.5" triple-gauge track.
