GGLS New Years Day Chili Run

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

The Golden Gate Live Steamers would like to invite the members and their families to our Annual "Chili Run".  This is our way of "ringing in the New Year", and it will be held on January 1, 2019 at the club track in Tilden Park, Berkeley California.

Those who like to bring their equipment to run on our track (weather-permitting, of course) will be able to unload their equipment starting at approximately 9:00 AM. Chili, as well as various desserts, will be served at 11:30 or thereabouts.  All members of both clubs are welcome to bring a small dessert or side dish to share.

Bring your appetites and be ready to have a great time!   Directions can be found at our club web site at

About Us

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, inform & promote model engineering craftsmanship for the benefit of our members and to educate the public on what live steaming & model engineering is all about.

Our club facilities include about 5,000 feet of 7.5", 2,000 feet of 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.

Members Sammy Tamez, Rich Croll & Rick Zobelein running on the 7.5" gauge inner loop

We run a train carrying the Public free (but donations gratefully accepted) 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.
