“Historic steam maintenance roundhouse!”
Historic steam maintenance roundhouse, in continuous operation since 1897, home of the "Movie Star Locomotive" Sierra No. 3 Self-Guided Walking Tours of the Park provide an overview of the Historic Jamestown Shops and Roundhouse; complimentary maps are available at the Railtown Depot Store. Several points of interest are called out, including a movie prop area plus locations where guests can look into the Shops and Roundhouse. Every Saturday and Sunday, April through October, ride behind a historic steam or diesel locomotive on a train trip through California's scenic Gold Country! Trains depart from the Railtown Depot on-the-hour 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Trains feature comfortable enclosed coaches, open 'mountain observation cars', our restored wooden caboose, or our opulent first class car.
While travelling through Jamestone in California, we stopped by Railtown 1897 State Historical Park in order to admire and see the first train line of California.
This trip was very educating for us and our children and the guides were super kind and friendly.
There are souvenir shops where we bought the first train of California in a miniature for the kids to remember their visit.
Very interesting stop and I would strongly recommend it to everyone!
