New to the fourm - Quick question

Postby Nesbittaudia4 » Thu May 04, 2017 1:14 pm

Greetings,

I just moved to San Francisco, Ca from the east coast. My interest in trains and photographing trains grew as I was driving across the country and was able to catch photos of the freight trains with the western mountain backdrops.

I am looking to keep building on that. I did some pretty cool ones of the trolleys on the hills of SF already.

I am curious if there are any steam powered or coal powered trains that still go out on the tracks any where near San Francisco? Thank you for any help that anyone can offer.

Your best bet is the Niles Canyon Railway: http://www.ncry.org/

The Golden Gate Railway Museum is in the process of moving, but their website is at http://www.ggrm.org/

Finally, the Western Railway Museum is a little farther away and is mostly electric and transit equipment, but still a great place: http://www.wrm.org/

Hope this helps.

Thanks! I am looking at their site now. As some bonus info, do you happened to know which they travel out of the station? Looking at the map and I am thinking they are going south out the station and going east. Any idea?
