Museum Exhibit

After years of planning and hard work we now have a completed building!

Even though the #18 has called it home since July 2017, the Larry Peckam engine house was finally considered officially completed in October 2017. Now the CCRW crew can proceed on with completing the track and interpretive components to the exhibit. Posts from December 2016 thru May 2017 show pictures of the building construction.

In March 2018 the switch and track into the second stall of the engine house was completed. Track was also laid as far west as we currently can go to the irrigation ditch.

Plans for 2019 and 2020 are to complete about 400 additional feet of track towards the Eastern California Museum main building.

Jan Rons beautiful artistic rendering of what the #18 looks like at the Eastern California Museum. Jan’s painting was on the cover of the Nov-Dec 2013 Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette.

Phase 2 would include the permanent engine house and a small track extension.

The finished plan includes what is now a two stall engine house and approximately 1000 feet of track.
