1990 Club Medal

Southern Pacific Railroad's Train Depot Modesto. CA
Howard Wesely

100 Silver (numbered)
100 Antique Bronze
100 Copper

THE STORY: This medal commemorates the 75th anniversary of the completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad's Train Depot in Modesto, California. This was a significant event, as railroads have always played an important part of Modesto's history. Since its founding in 1870, Modesto, as with many other valley towns, was a "railroad" town and its growth was directly linked to the railroads. This medal depicts the depot as it looked at its completion and both an old steam locomotive and a modern engine facing each other.
