Museum of the San Ramon Valley



Running at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley June 23–August 26

The Museum of the San Ramon Valley once again proudly presents:


This always popular summer exhibit will open at the Museum of the San Ramon Valley on June 23.

The main layout of the exhibit has two elevations with 4 running trains, scenery, bridges, a trestle, tunnel and a village with a replica of the Museum, the former Southern Pacific Depot. A secondary layout features a number of working accessories. On display are items from three private collections of model trains dating from the early to mid-1900s. They include Lionel, American Flyer Standard gauge, and Marx O gauge. A very special Thomas The Train table will be set up for the youngest visitors to play and enjoy.

This year’s layout will showcase several new scale models of buildings in the Valley. These new additions to the layout join a number of “scratch built” structures built for the layout, and donated to the Museum over the years. The total collection of these buildings represent structures, most of which were found along the tracks in Alamo, Danville, San Ramon, and all the way to Dublin.

Totally Trains is a fun way to spend a summer day for children, adults and the entire family. Be sure to purchase your Family Pass for $15.00 which gives your family unlimited visits to this exhibit!!

Tuesday through Saturday – 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Sunday – 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM

    • We hear you, Dan… settled for American Flyer in the early years, graduated to the Lionels. We have a Santa Fe Super Chief set we’re fond of but we can’t say why!

  1. I was lucky enough to get a post war Lionel set as a hand me down from my dad. Somehow I didn’t destroy it as a kid and now my kids play with it. Gotta watch out for sparks and raw wires after all these years however!

    • Me too. Still have my pops prewar Lionels and we run them every Christmas. The kids want them but not handing them over until they sign a promise to care for them.

  2. It looks like several grown up boys will be attending! My husband is one of them. Something about trains really gets him excited.
