Work Day

Saturday, January 20, 2018

9 am to 2 pm

Once every two years, the trees around the club house need to be trimmed and that time has come again.  

Bring lopers, pole pruners, gloves, ladders, etc. to help tackle this task.  Dress accordingly, but weather should be awesome. This is a great opportunity to get out, enjoy the fresh air, clean up the facility and associate with other members.

We will have 2 kinds of HOT hearty soups, homemade by Sandy Morris, to feed our volunteers: Vegetable Barley (for the vegetarians) and Chicken Noodle, along with rolls & butter. For dessert there will be Cookies and Brownies.

So that there will be plenty of food, please let Sandy know if  you will be there.

e-mail: or 

call 925-240-9034 (leave message with name & the number in your group!)

Many hands make quick work!

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.
