Friday Night Steam

 Meet a man who made his dream come true!


 The Livi B. Railroad is located in Willow Glen, CA and is the creation of Evan Bautista (@trainbuilder on YouTube) and named after his daughter. It consists of 250 feet of track, part of which is permanent and part of which is laid for each operating session. The sharpest curve is around 13ft radius. A short wheelbase 0-4-0 porter live steam locomotive built by Ken Roeh is the motive power, along with three flat cars built by Evan, using Steve Easlon trucks. Known as 'The Guy with the Train" around the neighborhood, Evan has given rides to hundreds of kids during Halloween.
