Historic Exhibit Train to Debut in California

Exhibit Train Prepares for its Debut

All aboard! The famous Amtrak Exhibit Train is making its debut at the Fullerton, Calif., train station this Saturday & Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.!

It’s been a year-long project that’s crisscrossed the country, gathering exclusive historic items for display, creating the train itself and now rolling into its first stop.

“We’re excited to get the train out on the rails again,” says Fran Berk, manager, Government Affairs, who leads the project. “It’s always popular with rail fans and kids in the communities we visit.”

The Exhibit Train is very interactive. It’s extra kid-friendly and includes displays of photos, uniforms and memorabilia from our four decades of history while giving you a look into the future of high-speed rail. Did we mention there’s some pretty cool merchandise at the end?

The best part is you can test real train horns!

“Visitors will get a sneak peek at our new Viewliner sleeper, too,” Berk says. “I think that will be popular.”

After its stop in Fullerton, the Exhibit Train will head to Albuquerque, NM, to celebrate National Train Day with the community there.

May 11 will be the sixth annual National Train Day, when folks across the country will be celebrating why trains matter to them, their towns, and their communities.
