The South Bay Historical Railroad Society (SBHRS) welcomes the IEEE PSES and Reliability special interest groups for a tour of our historical landmark in Santa Clara. The Santa Clara Depot was the oldest continuously operating depot west of the Mississippi River until the Joint Powers Board closed the ticket office in May 1997. Originally built in 1863, the Santa Clara Depot has served the community through many decades helping foster prosperity in Santa Clara and the immediate area. The SBHRS currently operates a museum in the building in exchange for maintaining the structure. The museum includes the main depot with the research library and artifact displays, the speeder shed, the interlocking control tower, the OWR&N business car, and the scale operating displays. The building is available for business meetings and birthday parties. Funds from these events help to pay for the continuous restoration activities. We also give tours to schools, scouting groups, and many other organizations.
