Event: La Mesa Railway Museum 100th Birthday

Pacific Southwest Railway Museum Association, La Mesa

100th Birthday Saturday, August 11

Come celebrate with us as we pay homage to our beloved 1912 steam locomotive, former Southern Pacific Railroad No. 2353, on its 100th birthday, Saturday, August 11th. Free hamburgers and hotdogs, drinks and birthday cake will be available 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. inside the Museum’s big Display Building at our Campo living-history & train-operation center. 104-ton 2353 will be outside for photos and visits to the cab. Plan to stay for one of our evening Golden State old-time train rides, departing at 5 and 7 p.m. for a 70-min., 12-mile round trip through the mountains and valleys of San Diego’s east-county. Be sure to save your Museum admission ticket for credit on the train ride (Museum members get free admission and free train rides all year!).
