- Click here to see the 2020 calendar of activities and events.
- Upcoming Events - information about how to make reservations for our events will be provided as the date draws closer, normally about four weeks prior to each event.
- Al Smith Day 2020- We are continuing to work to restore track that was damaged last winter so have canceled Al Smith Day for 2020.
- Cal Poly Day 2020 - This event has been rebranded to become the Cal Poly Swanton Pacific Day. The Swanton Pacific Ranch and College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences have planned an event that will highlight the various activities that take place at the Swanton Pacific Ranch. Of course part of the event will be to highlight the railroad. We are hoping to begin track repairs this spring. It is too early to tell if we will be offering train rides but at the very least we will have some static displays to help people learn more about steam powered travel. We will post more details about Cal Poly Swanton Pacific Day as the details become available.
Whether you expect to be an active volunteer or simply interested in preserving the history associated with steam driven locomotives we encourage you to become a member of the Swanton Pacific Railroad Society. The link below will give you access to the membership form which can either be completed by using Microsoft Word or by hand.
