The plaque was placed at the foot of the stairway leading to the upstairs station agent's quarters, whose restoration Tom oversaw. The Rancho Simi Recreation and Parks District also participated in the dedication. Both wanted to show their full appreciation for all that Tom Bergh accomplished. Rancho Simi Foundation President Chris Darwin and Curt Osterhoudt, the Museum's Docent in Charge, spoke at the event culminating with the uncovering of the plaque.

Family members included his beloved Valerie, who was his wife of many years, sons David and his wife Michelle, Bob and his wife Lori, Tom's granddaughter Emerson and Tom's sister Barbara Terry. Valarie Bergh reminisced about the trips she and Tom made back to Nebraska to obtain the memorabilia that would adorn the Depot. Other items were obtained through Craig's List and the vintage stove acquired in Oxnard. Wherever Tom, through extensive research, found, it ended up being a vital part inside of the Museum inside the Depot.

Even outside, a vintage Southern Pacific trackside phone booth from 1922, fully restored, became part of Tom Bergh's legacy.
Many helped Tom place the acquisitions into the Museum, but Tom was the inspiration behind the venture. While saving of the Depot kept its history alive, it is Tom Bergh's love of that history, which has kept an accurate and wonderful part of its local history alive.

Today, other volunteers, some who came on board with Tom, still show and share the history with the public as Tom so frequently did. History continues so long as volunteers show up.
