In 1897, Sierra Railroad was chartered to build a rail line from Oakdale to Angels Camp. The railroad reached Jamestown in late 1897, but did not get completed to Angels Camp until September 1902. Join us on part one of our excursion along the Sierra Railway to learn why it took so long, walk over some of the Right of Way, explore how they engineered this “impossible” rail line, and hear about the tragedy that struck on this section of the railway in 1904.

The program is free of charge, suitable for all ages, and does not require reservations. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
