Railtown 1897 Historic State Park Jamestown


California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to offer haunted “Skeleton Starlight” excursion train rides on four Saturday evenings this fall on October 8, 15, 22 and 29. Pulled by historic steam locomotive No. 28, the 50-minute “Skeleton Starlight trains depart at 6 and 7:30 p.m. Staffed by a “skeleton crew,” the frightfully fun haunted excursion train rides on the old Sierra Railway will journey to a spooky western ghost town where riders will be met by a coven of local witches handing out tasty Halloween treats.

Located in the heart of California’s Gold Country, Railtown 1897 SHP combines railroad heritage, local history and the lure of Hollywood and is one of only two authentic and still-operating short line steam-era railroad roundhouse complexes in the entire country. The Park is also home to the famous “Movie Star Locomotive” Sierra No. 3®, which has an impressive history of starring in more than 100 film and television productions such as “High Noon,” “Back to the Future III” and “Petticoat Junction.”

Tickets for the spirited “Skeleton Starlight” excursion train rides (which include Park admission) are $25 for adults, $15 for youths ages 3-17, and children ages 2 and under are free. To make advance online reservations, please visit or call 209-984-3953 for more information.
