Railtown 1897 SHP


With spring in full bloom, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park is offering special Wildflower Train Rides on two Saturday afternoons only! Guests will enjoy a unique train ride experience behind the “Movie Star Locomotive” Sierra No. 3 as they treat their eyes to beautiful wildflowers! And, prior to boarding, passengers will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with wildflowers of the Sierra Nevada foothills. Then, along the six-mile, one-hour train ride through the scenic Gold Country, guests will encounter meadows and rolling hills, with such flora as “meadowfoam,” “goldfields” and other colorful flowers typically in bloom. Plus, guests are even able to take wildflower seeds home to spread for themselves!
