The California Trolley and Railroad Corporation (CTRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to preserve and reflect the legacy of rail transportation in the Santa Clara Valley. Among the numerous projects underway is the complete restoration of Southern Pacific 2479 and the static restoration of Southern Pacific 1215. The California Trolley and Railroad Corporation has restored for operation a number of historic trolley cars at History Park at Kelley Park in San Jose. A major undertaking is the creation of the San Jose Steam Railroad Museum with the focal point becoming the former six-stall Lenzen Roundhouse and turntable.

The organization operates from the Mineta Transportation Institute at the San Jose State University Research Center.
