California - SPCRR Home

Ardenwood, CA - In 1880 the SPCRR was the South Pacific Coast Railroad, a narrow-gauge railroad that steamed south across the marshes and farms of Alameda and Santa Clara Counties, then wound through the mountains and forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains until it reached the ocean at Santa Cruz.

Today the SPCRR is the Society for the Preservation of Carter Railroad Resources, a railroad museum located in Ardenwood Historic Farm Regional Park in Fremont, California close to the Carter Shops in Newark. The SPCRR restores equipment representative of those bygone days. Our collection contains 13 cars from the 1870s and 1880s. Most of the cars were built by the Carter Brothers in Newark. We are actively restoring 3 cars and have four cars in service. We have 1-1/2 miles of track and operate a recreation of the original SPCRRs Centerville Branch at Ardenwood. We use draft horses to pull a 1885 North Pacific Coast RR flatcar set up as a picnic car on scheduled runs through farm fields and Eucalyptus groves.
