We have 2 unloading areas, one which is “ramp style” and another with a hydraulic lift / transfer table rated at 2500lbs capacity and 10 large steaming bays with air, water, & electrical service with more planned to come on line soon. We are located in a beautiful, “rails to trails conservancy” park, that is a part of the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad mainline between Cleveland & Cincinnati, Ohio, and is located in York township, just outside Medina, Ohio .

Portola Valley & Alpine Special Train Mountain Invite

Sept 29-30, 2018


On this date, PV&A want to invite the Sacramento and Golden Gate Live Steamer members to journey with them to a Train Mountain, Oregon to share the camaraderie and have lots of friendly faces there.


As for lodging, there are some local accommodations around the area if you book early and Train Mountain has a couple of rooms too but some are booked already. There is also a new hotel at the Kla-Mo-Ya Casino in Chiloquin, Oregon which should be open by then. Maleta’s cafe, one mile from Train Mountain also has rooms. Great breakfasts and the pot belly cafe food is good. If you have a tent or RV, there's Walt’s Cozy Campground which has showers.  There is Train Mountain web page that has detailed information on local lodging at:

http://trainmtn.org/tmrr/pages/lodging.shtml


But be aware that if you want to bring your own train, you must be a Train Mountain member in order to run it.  This is easily done through their website at http://www.trainmountain.org/


Join us to ride on one of the members trains or join us just for some great fun.


Contact PV&A member Russ Sonnenschein (russell.sonnenschein@gmail.com) for more information.

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.
