The G&O Outdoor Railway will be open on Sunday October 16, 2011 during the BAGRS’ East Bay District Tours. Please subscribe to the “Trellis & Trestle” newsletter on the BAGRS website for more information.
The G&O Railroad is located at 1302 Orchard Avenue, in Thrasher Park, at the corner of Orchard Avenue and Davis Street, in San Leandro.
As many BAGRS members already know, the G&O Outdoor Railway is being built as a public display and will be open weekly, weather permitting, once it is completed. It can operate both O gauge 3-rail and G gauge (including live steam) trains.
We are working to very hard to get the display ready for the tour. Our work train crew has a lot to do as shown below. This line was last used in June.
The San Leandro Historical Railway Society will also have a huge Train Sale during the open house to liquidate excess equipment, track and buildings. Most of the for sale items are G gauge. This Train Sale is a chance to pick up some real bargains. We will have trains in all scales available for sale. All proceeds go to support the Society and the G&O.
We are looking forward to your visit during the BAGRS East Bay Tour!
