Orange County Model Engineers

The Orange County Model Engineers (OCME) operate the Goathill Junction Railroad Train Station inside Fairview Park in Costa Mesa.

Free model train rides are offered the third weekend of every month (weather permitting). A typical trip takes between 12-15 minutes and covers two park loops going over bridges, different terrains, and views of surrounding mountains and wildlife.

Note: Children must be able to walk and be at least 31″ tall to ride the trains.

Birthday party reservations are offered on Saturday mornings. There’s also a gift shop with train-themed toys and keepsakes. Donations are welcome to keep the trains running.
