Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, Jamestown, California

Railtown 1897 State Historic Park is located in Jamestown, California. We had stopped in Jamestown to stroll the streets and pop in and out of the antique and gift shops.

As a last minute decision we decided to check out the railroad museum. As a California state park there was no charge for admission. It turned out to be quite interesting, with some neat (all working) locomotives

and a roundtable that is used during the 'season' when train rides are available.

There is a really great gift shop where I bought some books for my grandchildren. (My way of supporting the park.) In my opinion, Railtown 1897 is a must see for any rail buff.
