Campo Depot Gets a Facelift

Through the tireless efforts of several PSRMA volunteers, the Campo Depot has been freshly repainted.  This project, which spanned several weekends, ensures that the Depot’s wood construction will continue to be protected from the elements so visitors can enjoy the building for years to come.  We’re always looking for extra pairs of hands for projects like these.  You can read up on how to volunteer your time at PSRM in Campo or the La Mesa Depot Museum in La Mesa on the Volunteering page.

Pumpkin Express Tickets


The Pumpkin Express returns to the creepy confines of the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum on Saturday, October 8.  Take a ride on the train leaving from the Campo Depot at 10:30am, 12:15pm, and 2:30pm on select weekends in October.  The train drops you off at our Display Building where visitors can walk through two haunted trains filled with ghosts, ghouls, and other scary delights.  Kids can also decorate their very own pumpkin at the arts and crafts tables inside.  Your ticket purchase includes admission to the rest of the Museum where we have over 60 pieces of vintage railroad equipment on display.  Reserve your tickets today before they’re gone.
