Club Meeting & Swap Meet

Sunday September 14, 2014 10 am

Once again, another opportunity to make some money by getting rid of those nick-knacks, tooling and surplus material that keep getting in the way. For those in the buying mood for the winter holidays, or beginners equipping their dream work shop, come & look. Bargains galore (we hope), where last time there were a myriad collection of items from a bicycle frame to a full size rail speeder!

An opportunity to practice the fine art of haggling, a chance to locate that missing item or again end up buying something you really don't need! Smiles galore but make sure to bring your poker face (and cash money) if you want the best deal!

So locate those antique treasures and bring them to the September 14, club meeting. The Swap Meet is before and after the club meeting and it won't be freezing cold this time.

Please contact Pat Young ( if you have questions.

About Us

Located at Tilden Park in the hills above Berkeley, the Golden Gate Live Steamers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit museum whose mission is to operate a large scale miniature railroad, to teach & promote craftsmanship in model engineering for the benefit of our members and the education of the public on what we are all about. 

We run a train carrying the public every Sunday from Noon To 3:00 pm depending on the staffing & weather and our station entrance is located just further and below the Redwood Valley Railroad loading station.  

If you have an interest in railroading, live steaming, home shop machining or model engineering, we would love to welcome you to our club.  Please feel free to come to any of our monthly club meetings and introduce yourself.  Our club meetings are usually held on the second Sunday of each month starting at 10 am but please check our club calendar for the actual dates.  Our club facilities include 7.5", 4.75" dual-gauge ground level track and a high track loop consisting of 4.75", 3.5" and 2.5" triple-gauge track.
