Farewell Open House at Arroyo Grande

March 5, 1898*

Nearly everyone in Shamokin and Fosterville came to bid farewell to the Pacific Bill & Jamie Railroad (PB&JRR), a good friend to the community for the past five years.

One mishap today.

*For actual year, add 107

Today's well-wishers were from the Santa Maria Valley Railway Historical Museum and the Arroyo Grande Methodist Church. Can you spot all three engineers in the photo above? (Hint: look for RC controls in their hands.)

Kids of all ages ran trains.

Each is running his own train.

Sometimes you have to relax and just take it all in.
