Looking for a unique way to treat mom extra special this Mother’s Day?  Plan a trip to Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) in Jamestown for a relaxing steam-powered train ride behind the famous “Movie Star Locomotive” Sierra No. 3 and she’ll receive a complimentary commemorative Belgian chocolate bar (while supplies last).   With beautiful wildflowers still in bloom on Mother’s Day,  Railtown 1897’s excursion train rides include a relaxing, 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.
