The non-profit Orange Empire Railway Museum has been preserving Southern California’s railway history since 1956. Home to over 200 historic railway cars and locomotives from Los Angeles and the West, the museum’s 90-acre site in Perris, California

On October 25 and 26, ride a trolley to the pumpkin patch where you can pick out and decorate your own pumpkin.

On a typical weekend (other than during special events), two city streetcars are running on the half-mile dual-gauge Loop Line, and another train is operating on the 1.5 mile standard gauge Mainline. The northern end of the Museum Railway is presently at 7th Street, although during certain special events trains operate all the way to the historic 1892 Perris Depot at 4th Street. Future plans call for regular operations to be extended to 4th Street as the depot area is rebuilt into the new Metrolink station and transit center. 

I have visited this museum before  and really loved it and was more than happy when I was invited out there out to do a show about the trains , trolleys and the history

I had the privilege of spending the day with Mr. Norman Buchanan who served as my tour guide has we spent a good couple of hours walking around the museum

I had to prerecord the show and found the recorder kept turning  off  so I will have to do some editing and repost the original show (or series of shows) so please stay tuned

But I did want to pass along my thanks to the ALL the Staff, Docents, MR. Ken Schwartz for letting me wander around and especially to Mr. Buchanan for being my tour guide
