This City Hall and public park are the eastern end of the historic Fillmore & Western Railway that runs west to Sana Paula in Ventura Country, California.
Diesel locomotives 100 & 101 are the streamliner era units from the Golden Age of rail travel. They were built in 1949 by the Electro Motive Division of General Motors for the Chicago & Northwestern Railway and came to Fillmore & Western Railway in 1992. Referred to as "F7's", these diesels keep the good times rolling for the Fillmore & Western dinner trains and daytime excursions.
Built by Alco in 1961 for the Southern Pacific Railroad, "Boris" now does regular service for Fillmore & Western Railway as the power unit for the famous Murder Mystery Dinner Train or the daytime excursions.
