Danville – “Garden”-Scale Model Trains Exhibit
June 29 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
G Scale Model Trains at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley
The Diablo Pacific Short Line Railroad will be up and running outside the Museum of the San Ramon Valley in Danville CA on Saturday, June 29 from 10-2. This admission-free exhibit of portable large scale model railroads is an amazing site for young and old alike.
The DPSL is constructed in “large scale” (garden railways, G scale) modules to encourage participation and observation by young children through those of senior age. It is built on table-tops low enough to be visible to children.
Each module is individually constructed with unique themes or scenery, but the rails are designed to interlock to provide various configurations, depending on the space available at each venue. They represent steam locomotives of the late 19th through the middle 20th century and diesel and electric locomotives of the ‘40s and ‘50s until the current era.
The Museum of the San Ramon Valley is located in the restored train depot on the corner of Railroad and Prospect Avenues in downtown Danville. Free parking is available.
