Elks Rodeo Parade
Saturday, June 1, 2002
9:00am down Broadway
The Santa Maria Valley Railway Historical Museum was entry No. 66 in the annual Elks Rodeo Parade. A 30-foot trailer carried a 1/8 scale Pacific Coast Railway (PCRy) train headed by a Pacific Coast electric locomotive. The consist included a PCRy boxcar and a passenger coach. Riding on the float were Cub Scouts from Pack 93, Den 3 that had visited the Museum last Fall.
Thanks to Grekka Energy for the trailer, the SMVRR for a dozen ties, and to the BCWRR for 30 feet of 7.5-gauge rail and the train itself.
We're all pretty convinced that Dan was born to do this stuff!
