Another Museum Success!  The 35th Annual Toy and Train Extravaganza of 2019 has concluded.  So many wonderful toys on display from years gone by curtesy of Bill Warner, new whimsical creations from Joe Sanchez, and trains, trains, trains!  Many thanks to our Curator, Sheila Pickrell, and the museum regulars (Diane, Ann, Bill, and Susan), to members of the Central California Model Train and Historical Society, and to our Trainmaster--Dr. Don Stover.  Thank you, also, for the support from our community and to all who visited.  Come back and see what we have in store for you after Thanksgiving this year.

Our Thanks to Everyone Who Donated Items to the Annual Yard Sale.
