National Train Day in San Bernardino, California

Technically this isn't an Inland Empire story, but it was written by an Inland Empire guy (David Allen):

It's an event in its second year to encourage train riding. It commemorates 140 years (minus one day) since the "golden spike" was driven to complete the transcontinental railroad. Amtrak is sponsoring Train Day and is hosting events in D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago and...L.A.

Festivities at Union Station, but is there anything at our local train stations or elsewhere in the Inland Empire? Yes, in San Bernardino:

San Bernardino, CA
City of San Bernardino
09:00 AM - 05:00 PM
1170 W. 3rd Street - Historic Sante Fe Depot

Come join the City of San Bernardino History & Railroad Museum for National Train Day. Mayor Patrick Morris will open the event. BNSF, Amtrak and Metrolink displays. The Depot waiting room and conference room will be filled with model railroads, vendors, and displays, in addition to the raffles will be held throughout the day for prizes.
