For Father's Day, treat dad -- or granddad -- to a day at Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) in Jamestown and enjoy a relaxing steam-powered train ride behind the famous "Movie Star Locomotive" Sierra No. 3! All fathers who take a train ride will receive complimentary commemorative Belgian chocolate bars (while supplies last). Along with live music provided by strolling cowboy Keith Keenom, the popular wooden Caboose No. 7 will be open for tours and children will receive complimentary balloons on this special day. Railtown 1897's popular excursion train rides include a breathtaking, six-mile, 45-minute journey that takes passengers through the rolling Gold Country foothills, passing through meadows and along grassy hillsides covered with ancient oak trees. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on-site on the sprawling Roundhouse lawn. In addition, the Railtown 1897 SHP Depot Store, Interpretive Center and grounds are open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and guided Roundhouse tours are available, too. Advanced train ride tickets are encouraged and available online at www.railtown1897.org.
