• 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.

    The G&O will be a unique outdoor model railroad because it is being built as a public display. It will feature two gauges of trains — G gauge and O gauge 3-rail. G gauge is the most popular gauge for outdoor trains. Lionel and other companies popularized O gauge 3-rail early in the last century.
