California - La Mesa Depot Museum
La Mesa, CA - The La Mesa Depot Museum is La Mesa, California's oldest building in its original form and is the sole surviving San Diego and Cuyamaca Railway Station in existence. The building you see today on the corner of Spring Street and La Mesa Boulevard in downtown La Mesa has an colorful history.

In 1974, the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum Association located and purchased the remains of the building, again for one dollar. In 1980-1981 the building was returned to its original site and, using money from a federal grant, was restored to its 1915 condition. Preservation was truly a labor of love for volunteers of the San Diego Railroad Museum, with help from members of the La Mesa Historical Society.

Today the Railroad Museum owns and maintains the building, and the City of La Mesa owns and maintains the grounds and land beneath it. The public is admitted free to the La Mesa Depot Museum for tours on weekend afternoons. Visitors can inspect the steam locomotive and string of freight cars on the nearby track and pass through the ticket/waiting area and view the telegrapher's station and a small exhibit area in the baggage room. This building and its past are a fascinating look at a bit of small-town railroading from yesteryear and its importance to the community it served.

California - Millbrae Train Museum
Millbrae, CA - In October 2004, the Millbrae Historical Society opened a railroad museum at the former Millbrae Southern Pacific Train Depot. The new Museum was described in a February 4, 2005 article in the San Francisco Chronicle. The depot building has been continuously in use since it was rebuilt in 1907. The Historical Society has a three-tiered plan for the site. The first step - the repair, clean up and repainting of the structure - was completed by a group of dedicated volunteer railroaders, led by Historical Society Treasurer and Train Museum Curator Vern Bruce. Throughout the process, careful attention has been paid to restoring the depot to as close to its original as-built state as is feasible. The waiting room and ticketmaster's office have been set up as a display area, housing a varied collection of photos, artifacts, documents, and books dedicated to the railroad history of Millbrae, the Peninsula, and the western United States.

California - San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum
San Luis Obispo, CA - San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum. The Railroad History of California's Central Coast

1894 Historic Museum Freighthouse History
Originally built with the San Luis Obispo Depot upon arrival of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1894, the 32' x 150' freight house served to load and transfer goods between the SP and the local narrow gauge, Pacific Coast Railway which linked San Luis Obispo with other towns in the County, State and Nation. The freight house remains intact today and is one of the oldest railroad structures in San Luis Obispo County. The exterior has recently been completely restored by the City of San Luis Obispo. Interior museum construction has come along way. The historic 1894 freight house building is our permanent home and houses the Museum and model railroad. We continue to need your help in finishing our interior restoration effort as well as artifact display and exhibit development. Help us preserve, and educate the community about, our regional railroad history!
