Chula Vista Live Steamers

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Chula Vista Live Steamers, established in January 1974, is a group of people interested in building and operating scale models of real (live steam) machinery. Their engines and associated equipment are usually built and operated by the owner and are maintained by them at their considerable expense of time and money.

The Chula Vista Live Steamers Inc. is organized and operated exclusively for public benefit charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (C.) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are welcomed to help maintain the trains and facilities.

Jan 2024 Flood

A storm and flash flood in San Diego and Chula Vista, California on January 22, 2024 severely damaged the Chula Vista Live Steamers track at Bonita Park.

Repair Progress

Donald Craig was asked by the Chula Vista Live Steamers Board of Directors to write an article for posting on the IBLS website. It is about the flood that took place January 22, 2024, and repair progress made thus far, along with thanks for those that have helped.
