Central Coast Railroad Festival

CCCGRS is delighted to participate again as part of this regional railroading festival. Festival participants are invited to explore five large scale model railroads over the two-day central coast event.

Garden Railroad Display at the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum

1940 Santa Barbara Avenue, San Luis Obispo, CA

CCCGRS invites our community to learn more about the creative hobby of large scale model railroading. On Saturday only, our group will operate an outdoor display at the SLO Railroad Museum featuring circus trains  and circus big top, plus a few surprises! Stop by and say “All Aboard” during this limited time display.

Cascade Peak & Buena Vista Railway

Santa Margarita, CA

Mark and Michelle Edwards welcome festival guests to this Disney Parks inspired garden railway. Guests are encouraged to explore the miniature landscape. The more time you spend, the more you see and hear!

J & W Railroad

Santa Maria, CA

Walt and Julie Wajda invite you to celebrate the autumn season on-board one of the longest continuously operating garden railroads on the central California coast. The J & W Railroad is a local favorite.

A & M Railroad

Santa Maria, CA

Be among the first guests to experience the newly reimagined A &M railroad. Mark and Sheila Goodman have (literally) raised their garden railroad to a new level. The A & M railroad is focused on train operations.

Orcutt & Islay Creek Railroad

Experience the sights, sound and smell of live steam locomotives operating on Geoff and Heather’s Orcutt & Islay Creek Railroad. Narrow and standard gauge steam locomotives will be on display during the event.
