• About the SLHRS

    line
    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.

    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).

    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.
