Cal Poly Day

Amy Herman mentioned that the Swanton Pacific Railroad is hosting Cal Poly day on October 9th and she encourages our members to attend.
You can sign up on their website (sprr.calpoly.edu/) and since space is limited, sign up ASAP.
On October 22, 23 2016, the Golden Gate Live Steamers will once again hold their Fall Meet at their Tilden Park location for steam enthusiast and the Public.
Saturday October 22 is reserved for fellow live steamers, guests of the club and model engineering enthusiasts.
Sunday October 23, from 11 AM to 3 PM is the Fall Open House where the Public is allowed closer inspection of the club facility. There will be free train rides, weather permitting.
If there are any questions, please feel free to contact our secretary.
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.
Members Sammy Tamez, Rich Croll & Rick Zobelein running on the 7.5" gauge inner loop
