California Poppy Railroad China Pattern Returns to Railroad Museum Store!

To the delight of rail enthusiasts, china collectors and fine dining lovers, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to once again offer the popular and coveted California Poppy reproduction railroad china in the Museum Store.  Out of stock locally for the last year and a half, California Poppy is thought to be the longest running china pattern featured by any railroad.  Known for its beautiful, iconic decoration and sturdy, low center of gravity (to prevent from being tipped over during passenger train travel), prices for the California Poppy china reproductions range from $25 to $65 for individual pieces and up to $110 for a 5-piece place setting.
