Museum Guides Take Part In Central Coast RR Festival

Volunteer guides from the South Coast Railroad Museum will be a part of the Central Coast Railroad Festival, which takes place Oct. 7-11, in San Luis Obispo and neighboring communities. The SCRM volunteers, who are part of the National Park Service's Trails & Rails Program, will be presenting interpretive programs between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo aboard Amtrak's Coast Starlight trains on Oct. 7-10.

The program presentations will focus on local history, points of interest, local sights, and the natural history of the area. Among the topics: the Santa Barbara Channel, Point Conception, flora and fauna, Vandenberg AFB, and the 1901 completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad's Coast Route joining San Francisco and Los Angeles.
