California - Fillmore & Western Railway
Fillmore, CA - The historic trains of Fillmore & Western are located in equally historic downtown Fillmore, California. The 1920’s-era business district greets visitors as they turn off of rural Highway 126. Fillmore is in the heart of The Heritage Valley, where travelers find themselves steeped in the history of local farming families and rich in agricultural treasures.

Pristine century-old citrus and avocado orchards are the main attraction along the route of the train rides. The passenger coach cars and dining cars are from the 1930’s and 1940’s, truly a step back in time for all who venture onboard. The many locomotives used to power the train are all pre-1950 and gently restored to meet the demands of the 21st century.

View Mt. San Cayetano and the Topa Topa Mountains to the north and South Mountain on the south, creating the Santa Clara River Valley. Fillmore is the trailhead of the Sespe Wilderness and Los Padres National Forest, home of the California Condor. History, nature and a small town atmosphere have all been nurtured and preserved in the valley for passengers who truly want to step back in time.

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.
