Rail Travel Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

Santa Fe Express Cafe

As of January 2020 we will be meeting at the Santa Fe Express Cafe, 136 E Santa Fe Ave, Fullerton, CA 92832,[masked], right on the station platform of the Fullerton Amtrak / Metrolink Station. More information and the menu can be found at: http://www.santafecafefullerton.com/ . The menu is more extensive and less expensive than most of our prior meeting locations.

The Meetup will be held on the 4th TUESDAY of every month (which is not always the last Tuesday of the month as some months have 5 Tuesdays).

Please try to arrive between 5pm and 5:30pm. The first people usually arrive by 5pm but some need a little more time to get to the Meetup from work.

We used to end the Meetup at about 6:30 PM as many attendees liked to walk over to the Fullerton Depot to watch the arrival and departure of the eastbound Amtrak Southwest Chief. Since at this new location we will be right at the station platform, we no longer have to end the Meetup to watch this train. We can continue the Meetup while enjoying watching the activities of the arrival and departure of this train as well as other Amtrak, Metrolink, and freight trains during our Meetup.

If you live in or are visiting Southern California and love to travel by rail, then you are very welcome to come to this Meetup!

We are not a passenger rail advocacy group nor a nuts and bolts railfan group. We are just a bunch of people that like to get together and discuss our rail travel experiences in a relaxed atmosphere over some food and drinks! If you like to travel by rail, or are interested in getting started in rail travel, then you should come to our meeting! If you have questions about travel on Amtrak, VIA Rail Canada, or on most other excursion and tourist railways, bring your questions to the meeting. Someone will probably have answers to your questions! Downtown Fullerton is real easy to get to by rail, bus or car. There is plenty of free parking on Monday evening near the station. Come to the meeting by rail! Fullerton has extensive rail and bus service. You can get to Downtown Fullerton from many parts of Orange, Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura Counties by either Amtrak or Metrolink trains, or in combination with other public transit rail and bus systems. Numerous OCTA bus routes also serve Downtown Fullerton. For exact schedules and routes, visit Amtrak.com (http://www.amtrak.com), MetrolinkTrains.com (http://www.metrolinktrains.com), and http://www.OCTA.net For driving directions and more information, see:
