First Wednesday: Saving Tamalpais Number 9

Hear the story of MTSR Engine #9, with musical guests!

The Mount Tamalpais Scenic Railway thrust 19th century Mill Valley onto the world stage.

In 1930 the railroad was swept from the mountain, its cars burned, rails sold and relics scrapped. Today, one piece, the last locomotive purchased, survives.

Historian Fred Runner will talk about the lost railroad and the project to save engine #9.

With special musical guests Dore Coller & His Millbillies!

Fred Runner is historian of the Mt. Tamalpais Scenic Railway and the West Point Inn. He is author of Mount Tamalpais Scenic Railway.
