Maricopa Live Steamers
The Maricopa Live Steamers Railroad Heritage Preservation Society is a club for people who enjoy preserving the heritage of railroading. Club members and visitors enjoy two facets of our hobby:
- The first are those who research and build scale steam locomotives and modern diesels.
- The second are those who simply love railroading. They enjoy running, track switching, hauling and doing maintenance.
Club membership comprises people from around the Phoenix metropolitan area and non-resident members who live outside a 75 mile radius. We offer junior membership for those interested in railroading who are under the age of 18.
Many club members build their own locomotives and cars. Other members either have their engines built or run club equipment.
Maricopa Live Steamers offers free rides to the public each Sunday (except Mid-May through August) from Noon till 5:00 p.m. Club business meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month.
During the hot summer months, between the beginning of May and the beginning of September, no rides are offered to the public, but visiiting railroaders are welcome to drop by.
