Mission Statement

The Santa Clara River Valley Railroad Historical Society was established in 1993 to assist in the preservation and restoration of the railroad corridor between Montalvo and Saugus, California. This railroad corridor, commonly referred to as the Southern Pacific's Santa Paula Branch, is a unique and historic asset to the residents of the Santa Clara River Valley and the surrounding area. To maximize the economic, educational and recreational value of this asset, the Organization will acquire, preserve, exhibit and operate historic railroad equipment; in addition, it will collect and display artifacts, photographs and operational documents unique to the region.
