****IMPORTANT*** VENUE CHANGE FOR SLIDESHOW We have recieved word from the Fox Theater that due to a late remodel schedule, their venue till not be available to us for the Oct 22nd date as construction crews are still mobilized. We will be moving the slide show a few blocks to the north of the Fox at the Liberty Theater at the Bethel Church. This will be a great alternate venue for our show as it is turn-key ready for us. The address for the Liberty Theater at the Bethel Church is located at 431 North Tower Ave in downtown Centralia. Its located about 4 1/2 blocks north of the Fox on the same side of the street. The venue will be staffed with volunteers from the Fox Theater. The Liberty Theater at the Bethel Church opened in 1922 and served as a theater until the 1950s. The theater has been beautifully restored and has a large screen like the Fox. Looking forward to seeing you all here!

Christopher is a first time presenter at Autumn Leaf and brings to us a 2 part show. Part 1 of the show will be will be railroad scenes around the Northwest and Part 2 of the show will consist of photos from the final years of Eastside Freight Railroad operations.
Charles brings another show back to Autumn Leaf and this year we look at an often forgotten part of a train - the caboose. Its been almost three decades since the loss of this iconic piece of railroading and Charles will bring the days of the Hack, Van and Crummys from classic railroads back for one night!
This photo journey will show the sounds and smells and images of hardworking trains from the Southern Pacific and the Sante Fe, we will later look at the UP and the BNSF on this mountain railroad division. The SP Gone but not forgotten. This is a retrospect of all of my travels for the last twenty years of Tehachapi.
