Central Coast Railroad Festival

by on Oct.08, 2015, under Amtrak, CCRRF, PCRR, SLORRM, SMVRR, UPRR

I gave a talk on the SMVRR at the SLO Railroad Museum on Saturday morning. I also gave a talk Thursday evening at the SLO Library entitled “Railroading Galore in the Greater SLO Area” (PDF of the slides). All the photos, schedule, etc. are still available at the CCRRF website. I particularly enjoyed the participation by the Jack House and the SLO History Center.

Photos from the Railroad Festival

by on Oct.14, 2013, under Amtrak, CCRRF, SMVRR

The 2013 Central Coast Railroad Festival is “in the bag”. It was a jammed pack weekend of activities, and I think I got to fewer venues than ever myself this year as there was so much happening. Anyway, photos are indexed here.

Wine Rail Excursion to D’Anbino (Paso Robles)

by on May.12, 2012, under Amtrak, CCRRF

Lynn and I thoroughly enjoyed a Wine Rail Excursion put on by the Central Coast Railroad Festival. We took the Coast Starlight from SLO, over the grade, to Paso Robles where but a few feet away from the train was our destination winery, D’Anbino. The CCRRF offers these excursions every 2nd Sunday of the month; check their website <CCRRF.com>. Check out this web page for photos and more info: http://ccrrf.com/120512.html
