Baldwin Steam Locomotive Celebration
Saturday, April 28, 2018
Join the City of Poway and the Poway Midland Railroad Volunteers (PMRRV) to celebrate the return to service of the beloved No. 3 Baldwin Steam Locomotive, the only operational steam locomotive accessible to the public in San Diego County.
This is a free event, open to the community. Kids are encouraged to dress in their best train inspired outfits (such as conductors, engineers, passengers or trains themselves!) and arrive before 10 a.m. for an opportunity to be selected as ceremony VIPs and the first passengers of the day. Children can also participate in a train-themed craft to earn a free ride as well.
Operating out of Old Poway Park for almost 20 years, the iconic engine last ran in 2016 when critical boiler repairs could no longer be delayed. The PMRRV, a non-profit organization, and the City agreed to jointly fund a new boiler so that this historical treasure, built in 1907, could continue to delight passengers for generations to come.
