Shop for and learn about railroadiana and railroad antiques at Southern California’s largest outdoor railroadiana swap meet. PE Cars departing every 30 minutes.

Vendors will be selling railroad collectibles, art, books, models and toy trains. Railroad historians and preservationists will be on hand to tell the story of Southern California’s railway history. Fun and learning for the whole family!

SCRM hosts a variety of independent vendors for this event and cannot guarantee that all vendors will remain on-site until 2pm to showcase and sell their collectibles and wares, so early arrival is suggested.
