Live Steam Train Rides in San Diego Area? Please help me locate for my 5 year old son.?

My 5 year old is nuts about trains, especially steam trains. He will be 6 next week & I am trying to find the location & price of any steam train rides in our area? My husband is handicapped & we live on a very fixed income. The local RR mus in Campo only offers steam rides at special times & for special events and tickets are well beyond our means. I know there must be other public or private groups that offer steam rides to the public during the summer but I can’t locate any in the San Diego area. Can anyone tell me where I can find such places and if possible how much they charge for tickets.

Can you name all of the active steam locomotive trains in the West that are still giving rides to people?

I know of the Williams to Grand Canyon, Verde River, and the Silverton trains. I was wondering if there are others?
