Redlands Camera ClubJanuary, 2019, Field Trip---Orange Empire Railway Museum---The only way to get around in southern California is by car on a busy freeway. But it wasn’t always like that. Time was “Red Car” did not refer to a Toyota the same color as a fire engine. This area has a rich history on the rails, and the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, CA, has a great collection of artifacts from the era. The museum is billed as “the West’s largest collection of railway locomotives, passenger and freight cars, streetcars, interurban electric cars, buildings and other artifacts dating from the 1870’s.” Check out their website at www.oerm.org . The museum is sponsoring a “Behind the Scenes,” event on January 19 and 20, 2019 and we will visit on Saturday the 19th. Carpools will depart Coco’s in Redlands at 8:30 AM. If you choose to drive yourself, we should be at the museum in Perris by about 9:15-9:30. The Orange Empire Railway Museum is located at 2201 S. “A” Street, Perris, CA. Parking is free, and admission is only $12, quite a bargain for all there is to see there. Some of the displays are indoors so you may want to bring a tripod to deal with low light conditions. So far I have been unable to determine if tripods are allowed, but if they’re not, we’ll just leave them in the car. If you plan to attend, please contact Carl Detrow, home phone 909-792-6341, or cell 909-553-9494, or email@example.com .
