Club Meeting, Swap Meet & Recognition Lunch

Sunday, September 13, 2015 10 am

Once again, another opportunity for sellers to get rid of those nick-knacks, tooling and surplus material that keep getting in the way at the 3rd annual Swap Meet. 

For those in the buying mood for the winter holidays, or beginners equipping their dream work shop, come & look. Bargains galore (we hope) and who knows what can show up!

This year we are including a lunch to recognize the contributions made by the many volunteers that have made the club the success that it is.  The Board will provide lunches for any members who have contributed their time, effort or some other type of donation to the club during the past year as a small token of gratitude from the club.   

If you have any questions, please contact Pat (

About Us

Located in 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 to educate 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's 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 1,100 ft high track loop consisting of 4.75", 3.5" and 2.5" triple-gauge track.

Members Sammy Tamez, Rich Croll & Rick Zobelein running on the 7.5" gauge inner loop
