About the Event

Something For Everyone!

Get “Behind the Scenes” at the Southern California Railway Museum in Perris, where volunteers operate, maintain and restore the West’s largest collection of vintage rail cars.

At this annual all-day event, visitors get special access and tours of locomotives, passenger and freight cars, streetcars, interurban electric cars and artifacts dating back to 1870 and enjoy unlimited rides on trains & trolleys!

Bring the family for a fun and fascinating day! Activities at Behind the Scenes will feature tours and special equipment operations. Visit Ruffulo Carhouse 7, a restoration shed filled with trains and trolleys that is not usually open to the public. Get special access to the pit where you can go underneath a street car and see how it works. For an additional fee, get behind the throttle (under supervision) and run a real locomotive. Enjoy other special equipment.

This gated event supports museum operations and the continued restoration of historic rail cars and rail line.

This event is free to Museum Members. Non-Member Admission $12 Adults 12+, $8 Children 5-11.
