Obscura Day 2015: California Express at San Diego's Model Railroad Museum

Come ride the express to an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of San Diego's Model Railroad Museum!

On Obscura Day, take the train (or car) for a specially-curated trip inside the mini trains and railroads of San Diego's Model Railroad Museum. 

We will be given an up-close look at  the craftsmanship of miniature train layout creation, from buildings, to benches, to miniature people of the San Diego Arizona Eastern Railroad and the Cabrillo Southwestern Railroad.

New additions are constantly made to the layouts that began their life in the museum over 30 years ago.


Saturday, May 30th; Two tours - 12pm & 1pm

Cost: $13

Location: 1649 El Prado Street
