Calendar of Events


The Chapter presents Events and 2 to 3 Excursions per year for members and guests. We encourage non-members to joing our organization, and membership applications are available at our events.

Current scheduled events for 2016 are as follows:


ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP LUNCHEON & MEETING

Our 2016 Annual Luncheon, held Saturday, February 13, 2016 at Spenger's Fish Grotto in Berkeley, was well attended and all found the program presented by Dr. Bob Church, featuring the early 1900's photography of Stanley Palmer covering the SP and V&T in Nevada, very fascinating as nearly all of the images had never been published.

The question was asked to those attending if they would attend the Annual Luncheon if it was held in Sacramento. Bay Area members could ride the Capitol Corridor trains to and from the meeting. A show of hands showed almost all said they liked that idea. So, the Board is looking into setting the date in early February 2017 and will set up the luncheon meeting place in Old Sacramento, perhaps on the Delta King or another restaurant there that has a room for a luncheon/meeting event. The Board will also see if we can get passes to the California State Railroad Museum, so attendee's could visit the Museum before or after the luncheon.

EVENTS

The Board is looking into a ride/excursion type event on the new Sonoma Marin Area Transit (SMART) trains that are scheduled to start operations in Marin County later this year. Watch here for when this will hopefully take place.
