The FOTD will also have items for sale in the depot which will include books and artifacts along with other items.

FOTD President Tim Trujillo says, “Participating in or attending the Train Show is a great way to help the Depot. As an all-volunteer organization, Friends of the Depot, depends on fundraising programs like this to keep the Depot running and vibrant. We’ve got a jewel in the center of our town that needs your support. Please come out and enjoy the fun of the Train Show while helping do a good thing for Tehachapi.”

There is a suggested donation of $2 per person, children 12 and under are free. There will also be coffee and donuts for sale during the early morning hours and a bake sale later in the day.
