Irvine Park Railroad, Orange County, CA. – has a 24″ gauge ride on consist

Irvine Park Railroad, founded in April 1996, is a one-third scale train that takes both children and adults on a scenic ride through historic Irvine Regional Park. It’s located in the foothills of Orange. I found this out when Bill Burbridge and his charming wife came to visit our layout in Fort Bragg, CA. Bill and I got chatting and I soon found out that he is an engineer on the railroad. Me, not being shy, asked him if he had any photos and if so could I include them in my blog. Well, he did send some photos and they are bobby dazzlers. See for yourself:

The train is a 24″ gauge C.P. Huntington, manufactured by Chance Rides of Wichita, KS.

Thanks Bill for sharing.
