Purpose & History

The SRVB modeling group seeks to portray the San Ramon Valley Branch of the Southern Pacific Railroad as it existed about 1914 to 1924. Through research of various historical sources and the application of our modeling skills, we have created a model, in 1 to 160 (N-scale) ratio, for this purpose.

We display the model and offer commentary on it at model railroad events, museums, historical societies and other venues as an educational, nostalgic, and entertainment opportunity for attendees of these events.
