Friends of the SMVRR Tour the Museum
Saturday, November 22, 2014
The Friends of the Santa Maria Valley Railroad visited the Museum today for a private tour followed by lunch (of course) at Del Monte Cafe (right across the street from the Museum).
After a brief presentation about a new yard project proposal for the Union Pacific RR, the Santa Maria Valley RR, and the Museum in the area south of the Museum, Brad led the group on a tour of the Museum.
Note the Pacific Motor sign in the background on the right. These are original signs left untouched from when cargo for the various named entities were piled beneath their signs awaiting the next leg of their journey. There's a Sears Roebuck sign directly across the Museum from this one.
