Poway Midland Railroad is Full Steam Ahead

CABLE CAR RETURNS SUNDAY 11/28. We'd love to see you as we welcome the 1906 San Francisco Cable Car back to service!

The Poway-Midland Railroad is a full-size, narrow-gauge railroad in Old Poway Park which carries passengers aboard vintage and antique railroad equipment. The railroad is owned by the City of Poway, and operated by the Poway Midland Railroad Volunteers, is a 501 (c) 3 Corporation that exists on passenger ticket fares and donations.
Through the restoration, preservation, and operation of vintage railroad equipment, the Volunteers are able to offer the community and visitors alike with a vintage train ride around the park, and through interpretation, provide educational programs (such as Operation Lifesaver) as well.
