Brief Directions: Hwy 108 towards Sonora. Turn right on fifth avenue in Jamestown. Continue until you reach California State Park-Railtown 1897.
Notes: This was a special Christmas train exhibition as a gift to the people of Sonora from Railtown 1897. The park wanted to express their gratitude to the people as a thank you for helping to save the park during the State of California budget cutback.
On a very rainy day they undertook a rare trip to the city of Sonora. In fading light I was able to get this capture at the Campo Seco crossing in route to Sonora.
This historic engine has been featured in a number of western films and even a Back to the Future movie.
