SAN DIEGO DIVISION LAYOUT TOUR
Saturday March 13th
Noon to 3:00 PM
3211 Celinda Drive
South Fork Railroad ~ Hosts Dan & Lise Conway
It is 1955. The South Fork RR still uses steam locomotives, but a second-hand 44-ton diesel works the mines at Gold Hill. The South Fork interchanges with the Southern Pacific, and with the Virginia & Truckee RR in Minden, NV. Other branches serve gold mines and agricultural industries. A logging line uses a Shay to haul logs to a sawmill at Sierra City. The South Fork has an unusual track plan featuring long runs. Come watch some classic short line railroading: small steam locomotives hauling short trains up steep grades to the towns and mines of the region it serves. HO Scale.
