Railroad Days

South Coast Railroad Museum Event

Riding the rails has an allure hard to shake, as any train enthusiast will tell you. In lieu of clickety-clacking down the track, folks can get their choo-choo fix by visiting the South Coast Railroad Museum, which is dedicated to all things train. This weekend, the museum hosts its fifth annual Railroad Days, which includes miniature-train and handcar rides in the afternoon. But the central draw is the two-day public sale of railroad-themed paraphernalia that includes model railroad kits and supplies, books, posters, clothing, collectibles, and railroadiana artifacts. Railroad Days are Saturday-Sunday, August 17-18, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., at the South Coast Railroad Museum (300 N. Los Carneros Rd., Goleta). For more information, call 964-3540 or visit
