Free Rides Highlight Goleta Railroad Days Weekend at South Coast Railroad Museum

Free miniature-train and handcar rides will be given to South Coast Railroad Museum visitors during Goleta Railroad Days weekend, Aug. 9-10.

Visitors may ride as often as they like. The rides will operate continuously from 1 to 3:45 p.m.

The free train rides are made possible by a generous contribution from The Towbes Group.

The half-mile-long “Goleta Short Line” ride around the museum grounds takes about nine minutes. It is suitable for all ages, except the very young and very old. In the interest of safety, all train riders must be meet the minimum 34-inch height requirement. For the handcar, riders must be at least 48 inches tall.

Admission to the railroad museum is also free; donations are appreciated. The museum is located at 300 N. Los Carneros Road in Goleta.

— Gary Coombs is director of the South Coast Railroad Museum.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
