Home of the pacific southwest railWAY museum

Sometimes referred to as the “San Diego Railroad Museum”, the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum is headquartered in the town of Campo, along the tracks of the former San Diego & Arizona Railroad. The museum uses the SD&A’s old Campo depot building, seen in the photo above.

The photos shown here were all taken in the late 1990’s, when the museum was still running steam locomotive #2353. This loco is currently out of operation, as it needs a new boiler.
