Share Labor Day Steam Train Days 2014

Event Details

Over Labor Day Weekend we bring out the Big Guns !

 SP 2472! One of the largest steam locomotives west of the Mississippi !

August 30 and September 1, 2014

This event is sponsored by Golden Gate Railroad Museum and the Pacific Locomotive Association as a fundraiser to support the continued restoration of historic artifacts and rail line.


Grab your friends and family and come out for a ride behind a vintage steam locomotive, Southern Pacific No. 2472, as the train travels through scenic Niles Canyon.  It's a perfect way to get away from it all.  Plus, what better way to get away from it all than from the comfort of a train?

 

 

This weekend we will also be featuring our restored Fairbanks Morse locomotive. FM used its successful line of submarine diesel engines to enter the locomotive market in 1947. The unusual engine has a unique sound. GGRM is one of the few museums in the country to operate a restored FM. Come see it along with the 2472!
