SCSRA/FRPA Special Events

San Diego Train Trip - Model Train Museum - Harbor Cruise

On Saturday, December 6, FRPA and SCSRA members and their guests, and other rail fans, will enjoy a relaxing train ride along the coast to San Diego. Included in the trip is admission to the San Diego Model Train Museum and a two-hour harbor cruise. There will also be time for shopping and enjoying the Christmas decorations at the Hotel Del Coronado, where the movie Some Like It Hot was filmed. Departures will be offered from either Los Angeles Union Station or Fullerton.

The total price includes all transportation to and from San Diego, the model train museum, and the Del Coronado, admission to the museum, and the two-hour cruise.

The Trip

The schedule of events begins with the train departing Union Station at 7:20 a.m. and stopping at Fullerton at 7:52 a.m. for more passengers. On arrival in San Diego we switch to chartered motor coaches to go to Balboa Park, where we will visit the San Diego Model Train Museum, the premier operating model railroad display on the West Coast.

At 12 noon, our bus will take us to the Hotel Del Coronado on Coronado Island. You may dine in any of the numerous restaurants or cafes in the hotel, or down Orange Avenue in the village. The Del will be decorated for Christmas. After lunch, shopping, or just wandering through the Del, we will board our bus at 2:30 p.m. for transfer to the pier for our two-hour harbor cruise. Our return to the dock will be about 5:15 p.m. It is a two-block walk to the Amtrak station, where we will board our 6:20 p.m. return train.

For those who do not have enough to eat at the Del, there will be snacks on the cruise, and sandwiches and snacks on the train. We arrive back in Fullerton and Los Angeles at 8:27 p.m. and 9:05 p.m. respectively.
