• About the SLHRS

    The San Leandro Historical Railway Society (SLHRS) is housed in the San Leandro depot which was built in 1898 by the Southern Pacific Railroad. The depot was sold to the Society (for $1.00) in 1988. On December 11, 1988, the building was moved to its current site and work was begun on its restoration. In June, 1989, the museum and depot were officially reopened to the public.

  • Indoor HO Display

    H0 scale (HO scale in North America, Japan, and Australia, and sometimes in Europe, including the UK) is the most popular scale of model railway in most of the English-speaking and non English-speaking world (in the United Kingdom, OO gauge—with trains built to a larger scale but using the same track as H0—predominates).

  • G & O Garden Display

    The G&O Garden Railroad is the only public garden railroad in Northern California. The railroad consists of both G gauge and O gauge (3-rail) displays, hence the G&O name. Construction started in May 2008 and will never be finished.

HO Repairs

The HO Layout is operational again, with some repairs still in progress.  Chances are if you come down to the Depot during our open hours, the display should be operational.  However, if you’re interested in finding out whether the display will definitely be operational when you are planning to visit, please feel free to contact us a day in advance to find out!

Members – please contact HO Division Superintendent Eugene Brichacek or Electrical Chair Barry Chinn for updates.

Halloween Model Train Show & Open House

Join us the evening of October 25, 2016 from 5:00 – 9:00 PM for spooky trains running inside and outside to celebrate Halloween a little early.  Look at it as a chance for a dress rehearsal for the kids to try out their Halloween costumes before the big night!  We’ll have candy for kids in costume and fun themed decor both outside on the G&O Garden Railway and inside on the HO scale railroad.  Mark your calendar (it’s on ours below!).
