Railtown 1897 And The Sierra Railway

The Sierra Railway is one of the most intact steam railroads in the United States.

Today the roundhouse and adjoining property is operated by California State Parks as "Railtown 1897 State Historic Park" to interpret and celebrate the importance of steam railroading in California history.

Located in the Gold Rush town of Jamestown, in Tuolumne County, the railway began operations in 1897 and played an important role in developing the economy of Tuolumne and adjoining Calaveras County.
