All aboard! Come visit the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum! We’ve got all manner of displays and artifacts covering topics such as Surf, Santa Maria Valley, Southern Pacific, Amtrak, Port San Luis, the Pacific Coast Railway, Orchard Express, and more. Watch for QR Codes to get more information on your smart phone.
While you’re at the museum, check in on the progress of the Central Coast Model Railroad (CCMR). The museum will include an operating 1200 square foot HO scale model railroad which will visually set the context within which local railroads operated. This exhibit seeks to graphically demonstrate the life and times when the railroads were directly involved in the economic vitality of local communities and provided the majority of transport for people and freight. This model railroad will depict portions of the Southern Pacific and Pacific Coast Railway as they operated along the California Coast from Gaviota to Paso Robles.
