Take a ride to a land of wonder on the Grossmont Central Railroad, a spectacular, one-of-a-kind model train display. The nonprofit San Diego S-Gaugers club opens the railroad free to the public every Tuesday and Saturday from noon to 6 p.m., when visitors can admire the operational train layouts that are all meticulously detailed and designed. The interactive buttons operate train whistles, unload packages, and even launch rockets. Dinosaurs roam around the layout and superheroes protect the trains. Building interiors are lit and are well-stocked with furniture, pictures, workers, and equipment. Club members are eager to share their knowledge and passion for model trains with guests and also host special events throughout the year. If you can’t visit during operating hours, don’t worry—a button on the outside of the storefront allows Grossmont Center guests to operate the trains in the windows any time!
Tuesdays & Saturdays 12 PM - 6 PM
