Mark your calendar for the 2nd weekend of the month for a ride into the world of Chula Vista Live Steamers.
This club of steam engine enthusiasts will entertain and inform as you get to ride scale models of trains around historic Rohr Park.
Get up close and personal with the (all volunteer) members and their machines in a fantastic experience you will marvel over and want to share with your family & friends.
You’ll see the intricate details on the working scale models of trains from several eras, ranging from the earliest days of steam locomotives to modern diesels.
Go early and speak with the club members- some of the machines you see are completely hand built 100% actual working replicas of real trains. A MUST SEE to truly appreciate the artistry and elegance of the craft!
Please take note -rides are given from noon ’till 2:30pm on the 2nd Saturday and Sunday every month – adults and children FREE – although they do accept donations at the gate. More information can be accessed at the parks website.
A few highlights regarding Chula Vista Live Steamers:
- Come early and watch as the trains are loaded on the tracks and the coal fires lit!
- Established in 1974, the club welcomes new members – you don’t have to own a train
- Private birthday party celebrations are available – contact a member to arrange
There are several playgrounds, picnic spots, and ball fields adjacent to the tracks. Come and spend the day on the train.
All aboard! Choo-Choo!
