General Club Meeting

and Swap Meet

April 2, 2023

10 am at the club house

Swap Meet

(postpone from last month)

Due to the stormy weather and low attendence at the March General Meeting, the Swap Meet was moved to this coming month's General Meeting.

Get ready for an opportunity to make some money by selling some of those nick-knacks, tooling and surplus material hidden away in those dark closets, corners in the garage & under the work bench. 

For those in the buying mood, come and look. Bargains galore (we hope) where one can can practice the fine art of the haggle, locate that missing item for a collection or end up buying something you really don't need!

Attendance Requirements

The Board would like to remind attendees to General Club meetings that it can be held outdoors (most likely) or indoors, to be decided on that day, with masks and COVID-19 protocols in place until further notice.

About Us

Located in Tilden Park in the hills above Berkeley, California, the Golden Gate Live Steamers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit museum whose mission is to operate a miniature live steam railroad, to teach, inform & promote model engineering craftsmanship for the benefit of our members and to educate the Public on what live steaming & model engineering is all about.

Our club facilities include about 5,000 feet of 7.5", 2,000 feet of 4.75" dual-gauge ground level track and a 1,100 ft High Track loop consisting of 4.75", 3.5" and 2.5" triple-gauge track.

Members Sammy Tamez, Rich Croll & Rick Zobelein running on the 7.5" gauge outer & inner loops

We run a train carrying the Public for free (but donations are gratefully accepted) every Sunday from Noon to 3:00 pm, depending on the staffing, weather and permission from the authorities.  Our station entrance is located just a bit further and below the Redwood Valley Railroad's passenger loading station.


If you have an interest in railroading, live steaming, home shop machining or model engineering, we would love to welcome you to our club.  Please feel free to come to any of our monthly club meetings and introduce yourself.  Our club meetings are usually held on the second Sunday of each month starting at 10 am but please check our club calendar for the actual dates.
