Railroad Bronies - National Train Day

( Steam Tank here, I didn't make this meet up but I thought I'd add something . Trixie hates wheels , so lets make this a Great and Powerful Nightmare meet up! Muhahaha >:D )

A couple of months ahead, every year around May 12th is National Train Day. A celebration of the formation of Amtrak and anything to do with passenger railroading in general. LA Union Station is one of the main stations in the US hosting this event.

Aside from Union Station there are other possible things we could do being close to Downtown LA. 

HEADS UP!!! The date has been changed to match it on the 75th anniversary of LA Union Station.

    Let's try to meet at one of the platforms. I would say next to SF 3751 but it's not going to be there so...

    Let's meet in front of the Starbucks. I will have my Blue and Red jacket so finding me will be easy.

      Pending no delays on Surfliner 763, I should be on one of the platforms by 8:50am.

    • Alex L.

      I'll be there most likely by 9AM. Let's try and meet by the west portal by Starbucks. Although the meet's 10 proper, lets try and get here early for the re-dedication ceremony.

    Hey, everyone. I just came across this group from the EQD map yesterday and I saw this meet-up, to which I can completely make, but I'll be late due to my train leaving Fullerton at 9:29 and arriving to LAUS at ~10:30. Has there been a designated area to meet at?

  • WillowSprint

    • Will Barron IV (Steam T.

      Awesome the more Pony Swag we got the better , although I'd perfer a plush if we encounter a steam locomotive cause if want to take pics of the ponies with the locomotives it might be sorta difficult with the Plastic kind but .... we'll see , I'll think of something when the time comes , A Railroad Brony must always willing and ready for anything.

    Do you guys have to pay for entrance?

    April 19, 2014

    • Alex L.

      National Train Day is usually a free event. Just need to show up.

  • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

    I would love to come, If I had a car and drive down from NorCal.

    February 20, 2014

    • Alex L.

      I'd suggest taking the Coast Starlight going to/from but the fare and the fact that it travels only once per day in both directions would make it a little too pricey.

      February 24, 2014

    • Eric Wu ( LyokoTravels )

      I would but I'm saving for Babscon,Everfree NW & Babscon. Plus it's pretty hard to save that quickly as a college student

    Bit of a ways for me, but you don't see much varnish these days. And there's a famous eatery within a block or two, near the adjacent Post Office -- "Phillipi's", specializing in (and inventor of) the French Dip sandwich.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
