WELCOME ABOARD THE PSRMA FSBC TRAIN
Welcome to Pacific Southwest Railway Museum Association's fourth excursion. A special welcome to those of you who rode with us on Los Angeles' yellow cars, the Fallbrook Flyer or the San Diego Harbor Excursion.
PSRMA is appreciative of the cooperation of the Ferrocarril Sonora-Baja California and the bus lines whose facilities are being used today.
Walk through the train. Meet some friendly folk. Look for the "Bottled Beverage" car. Your patronage of this car will be appreciated by railway employees.
Now, please read the following comments.
On an excursion train with the many stops and varied operations it is important that passengers be safety conscious.
Here are some reminders:
- Actual operation of the train is the sole responsibility of railroad personnel. PSRMA members will assist with loading and unloading. No other person has any responsibility.
- Watch for train movements. Expect the unexpected.
- Do not board or leave the train while it is in motion. "Play safe."
- Doors must be closed when the train is in motion.
- Children must be supervised by their parents. Young children should be with their parents when the train is moving.
