Learn about the history of the railroad in Encinitas. Every weekend, enjoy fun activities that revolve around a historical theme. For the month of January we celebrate the railroad. Before the train came to Encinitas in the 1880s getting here was expensive and took a really long time. With the completion of the coast line from San Diego, new settlers could take a chance on moving to the area. Find out more about the trains that changed everything, then build your own toy train.
