SAN DIEGO TO BECOME FLAGSTOP
Yes, that's right! San Diego will be a flagstop on Saturday, May 14. That is the day that PSRMA is sponsoring an excursion via the Santa Fe. "The Fallbrook Avocado Festival" is the main event of the day. Our train will operate from National City over freight only trackage to San Diego. After a short stop in San Diego the train will proceed over the coast line to Fallbrook Junction, and on over the freight only Fallbrook Branch.
Equipment to be featured on the train will include an open baggage car, heavy weight equipment, and the observation car owned by OET.
The depature times and fares are yet to be announced, but should be out any day now. Be sure to watch for the flyers in your hobby shops and other places where rail fans congregate.
Information may also be obtained by phoning the PSRMA office, 233-0379.
