ABOUT THE RAILROAD

Located in Portola Valley, California this 7.5" gauge layout is a scenic live steam railroad with over one mile of track around a lake and through a tunnel leading up along a ridge to a balloon loop with two alternative returns. 

The Portola Valley and Alpine Railroad is maintained and operated by volunteers under a charter from the owners. There are about 65 members, and the club is actively seeking new membership.

The railroad, located on private land, is not open to the general public. If you are looking for a nearby public live stream railroad we recommend a visit to the Golden Gate Live Steamers at Tilden Park, in Berkley California.
