The Chula Vista Live Steamers is Looking for New Members to Join us in Running the Railroad!
At the Steaming Bay

Instead of watching electric trains in a miniature landscape, you can get out and ride a real steam engine!  Throttle up a monster diesel as it pulls a long string of stack cars!   Greet and board the public riders at our station!  There are many interesting parts of the live steam hobby, from machining to operations, from cookouts with friends to track work, electrical to air operated machinery, it's all here for you to enjoy!

Don't have a locomotive?  Don't worry!

We have equipment you can use, or you can team up with a member and help with running and learn as you go.  Many of our folks just come out and share in the fun!


There are many other live steam tracks in the area and around the country.  They all host fellow live steamers at regular "meets" throught the year.  It's great to travel to other clubs and share the fun!
