Railroad Days in Fullerton | May 6 & 7, 2017

Railroad Days Cancelled
Unfortunately, due to ongoing construction at the train station and other circumstances beyond our control, it is not feasible to continue with plans for this year's event. We will be redirecting our focus on smaller events at the Fullerton Train Museum. This decision was not made lightly. We love holding Railroad Days and seeing the community come together to share their love of railroading. As well, we know how much you enjoy being a part of Railroad Days.

We anticipate that we can continue next year and hope that you will all return as well. In the meantime, we would love to see you come by the museum to say hello. We are open every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, from 9-12.
