Our meetings are open to all who are interested. See the Events tab for meeting location and directions.
At our February meeting Sonja Conklin discussed the costs that may be incurred if you need air ambulance service, and how those costs are greatly reduced if you have membership in CALSTAR/REACH Air Medical Services. She offered the club the opportunity to apply for a rate reduction for club members. That has been implemented and PSRHS members can get a yearly membership for $55 per household, a $10 savings. Some of our members report that you can add extended family members to the plan at no additional cost even if they reside elsewhere, such as students at college, etc

Colfax Railroad Days will occur on September 12 & 13 this year in historic downtown Colfax. This year’s event will highlight 150 years of railroading in Colfax. Central Pacific trains first arrived in the new town in September 1865, and trains have been running through the heart of Colfax every day since then.
Preparations are being made to line up all the great attractions from previous years plus new ones for the 2015 Railroad Days Event! Go to the Colfax Railroad Days website to see who and what is coming this year to create another great educational and fun family event.
Everybody loves trains! and this is where you can see them, touch them, smell them and get inside them! Don’t miss it!
