All aboard as Railtown 1897 State Historic Park offers its popular excursion train rides all three days of the Memorial Day holiday weekend to treat guests to a scenic journey through California’s Gold Country!  Guests will enjoy a memorable six-mile, 45-minute round trip ride along the rails of the famous “Movie Railroad.” As a highlight on Saturday and Sunday, train rides behind Sierra No. 3 are available; then on Monday, visitors have the opportunity to ride behind a vintage diesel locomotive. For all three days of the holiday weekend, the prized Caboose No. 7 will be open for tours and, as a special treat, local musician Jim Nelson of the Black Irish Band will be aboard the trains playing banjo, guitar and vocals. Visitors to Railtown 1897 SHP are encouraged to bring picnic items to enjoy on the sprawling Roundhouse lawn.  All train ride tickets include Park admission and are now available online in advance as well as at the ticket window beginning at 10 a.m. on the day of the ride (based on availability).  For more information, call 209-984-3953 or visit www.railtown1897.org.
