Railroad Museum Offers Monthly “Diesel Days” Beginning this Weekend!

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to offer special “Diesel Days” one weekend each month – April through September -- by operating two visually-exciting and gracefully-styled diesel locomotives as part of the popular weekend excursion train rides on the Museum’s Sacramento Southern Railroad.  These brightly painted diesels -- Western Pacific No. 913 and Southern Pacific “Daylight” No. 6051 -- will pull the excursion trains both Saturday and Sunday on the following weekends:  April 19-20, May 17-18, June 14-15 (Father’s Day Weekend), July 19-20, August 23-24 and September 20-21, 2014.  These eye-catching and classic streamlined locomotives are representative of the so-called “First Generation” of diesel-electric locomotives which replaced steam engines all across America during the 1940s and 1950s.
