Fullerton Rail Days
Volunteers from RailGiants Train Museum and the R&LHS Southern California Chapter staffed their booth at Fullerton Rail Days. The annual show was held at the parking lot of the Santa Fe Station serving Metrolink commuter trains, Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner & Southwest Chief, and freight trains of Burlington Northern Santa Fe.
Visitors to our booth received information about our museum, activities, and benefits of membership. Several items from our museum’s gift shop were also for sale there. One of our members brought his “O” Gauge scale model of Union Pacific Big Boy steam locomotive #4014.
Steve McFerson speaks with one of our many visitors that weekend.
