Club Information
Description
The Diablo Pacific Short Line (DPSL) is an all-volunteer membership based organization, engaged in the operation of a portable, large-scale model railroad. The purposes of the DPSL are to promote the hobby of model railroading and to educate the public regarding the importance of railroads, railroad history, and train safety. We also provide education to our members in a variety of woodworking, electrical, and scenic techniques in the construction of modules and other hobby projects. We have access to extensive model railroad resources for members and the public.
Meetings/Schedule Information
The DPSL exhibits an average of 12 times each year, for 1-3 days at each venue. The exhibits are often corollary activities to museum or community functions such as historic railroad celebrations or hobby sales events. The exhibits occur in outdoor and indoor spaces, typically attracting a few hundred to thousands of fans each day.
