California Trolley & Railroad Corporation (CTRC)
Preserving the historical heritage of railroading and trolleys in the Santa Clara Valley of California.

The 2479 is a big locomotive; restoration is a big project.

We have several items on the history of the 2479 and its wreck in 1937.

Visitors are welcome to come watch the restoration. But they will be even more welcome if they come wearing steel-toed boots and work gloves (we will provide the hard-hat).

The restoration site is at the Santa Clara County fairgrounds, click here for directions.
