to the SCSRA website, which features activities of the Southern California
Scenic Railway Association, Inc., a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated
to promoting public appreciation of Southern California rail history
and rail safety. The SCSRA's current focus is assisting the
Railway Plaza Association (SCRPA), in their annual
Railroad Days event, as well as
their worthy long-range goal of realizing a first-class railroad museum,
the Southern California Railroad Experience
or SCRX. For more specifics,
see our Mission Statement.
The SCSRA is comprised of all volunteers who not only
have serious goals, but who also enjoy their interest in trains,
often by getting together
for dinners or train-themed activities.
Perhaps you'd like to join us?
Check out the latest news and
information about the Association and its activities
by visiting the SCRPA's
News and Calendar page.
Be sure to drop by
and read the latest additions, such as The Seven Eras of Rapid Transit
Planning in Los Angeles by Robert P. Sechler. There's also plenty of
interesting reading in our newsletter archive.
We welcome any literary submissions, and
gladly feature articles written not only by SCSRA Associates, but anyone
who wishes to contribute.
