Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve, restore, and interpret early wooden narrow-gauge railroad cars built beginning in 1874 by a small car builder named Carter Bros. Carter Bros. built cars in Monterey, Sausalito, San Francisco, and Newark (Newark's first industry). SPCRR started with the acquisition of just one combine car, the #47, found in the dessert near Keeler, California. Our collection now includes 20 railroad cars that were either built by Carter Bros. or owned by the South Pacific Coast Railroad; as well as J. Hammond's California Car Works in San Francisco, the North Pacific Coast RR, Westside Lumber Co., Holman Car Co., Swayne Lumber Co., and Westside Lumber Co.

Our current-day operation consists of one or more “picnic" or flat cars pulled by an engine. We operate The Railroad Museum at Ardenwood in Fremont, California in partnership with the East Bay Regional Park District. For days and hours of operation, please go to Ardenwood Historic Farm's website: http://ebrpd.org/parks/ardenwood.

For more information on SPCRR and The Railroad Museum at Ardenwood, go to our website: http://www.spcrr.org. SPCRR is a registered non-profit 501(c) corporation.
