“Bring Your Pop To The Stop” ran full throttle in Pasadena, California – there was no stopping this Locomotive…

What a day! – Father’s, from near and far, came in with their sons, daughters, grandchildren; they brought pictures of their dad’s – told stories and shared memories.

The,  always dedicated, crew was in the “cab” throughout the day, eager to help – enthusiastic and excited customers – answering questions and assisting with purchases.

Many came just to learn DCC – and then enjoyed a leisurely lunch in the cool breeze and shady picnic area that was provided in the back of the store. 


You can still feel part of the festivities by stopping by and taking advantage of the “ORANGE DOT” specialty priced merchandise located throughout the store – available now through the end of June.

And don’t forget to purchase your own  “Original” Hat and Mug!
