OWC intern helps keep steam locomotive running

Alex (leaning on the headlight) and the rest of the crew.

Alex Gillman recently joined Olmstead Williams Communications as an intern with a very unique passion: steam locomotives. When not building media lists or studying at California State University Northridge, you’ll usually find him on the train tracks.

This past weekend, Alex and the all-volunteer crew of the San Bernardino Railroad Historical Society (SBRHS) fired up their 1927 restored steam locomotive, ex-Santa Fe 3751, and used the engine to pull a special passenger train from Los Angeles to San Bernardino and back over the course of two days. The trip was made in conjunction with the San Bernardino Railroad Days Festival, which takes place in April.

“When we roll, we affect peoples lives,” Gillman said. “These engines used to be as common as big-rig trucks on the highway, and now they’re as rare as can be.”

Santa Fe 3751 traveled to San Bernardino via Metrolink tracks passing through locations such as El Monte, Covina, Rancho Cucamonga and Rialto. The locomotive is usually only able to make one or two trips every year due to the cost.
