Fall Membership Fieldtrip
Our fall fieldtrip will be an exclusive tour of the SIEMENS Railcar manufacturing plant in Sacramento.
SIEMENS is a world leader in high speed rail and urban railcar technologies. Their Sacramento manufacturing plant specializes in light rail and electric locomotives for the United States domestic market. The latest addition to their manufacturing roster is the manufacture of electric locomotives for Amtrak’s US Northeast routes. Our tour will focus on the assembly of these new locomotives. Society Members should check their September newsletter for details of the trip.
Look for the SIEMENS display exhibit at the depot during Colfax Railroad Days in October.
