Despite the weather, thousands of people visited the Fullerton Station on May 6 and 7 for Railroad Days. This free, family-friendly event celebrated all things train with special equipment on display, exhibits, tours, vendor booths, and more.
Amtrak joined in on the fun by offering a special Railroad Days deal, where one child (ages 2-12) could ride the Pacific Surfliner to and from the event for free with a paid adult.
