The Fun Continues With Harvest Haunt Express Train Rides Run Every Weekend in October

Jamestown, CA...California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to offer family-friendly “Harvest Haunt Express” train rides on all four weekends in October 2018. With the train whimsically decorated for Halloween and staffed by a “skeleton crew,” the popular experiences take place aboard an excursion train that departs at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. On Saturdays, the excursion train will be pulled by Sierra No. 3® (the “Movie Star Locomotive”) and on Sundays by a vintage diesel locomotive.





Train ride guests are encouraged to get in the spirit and dress up according to these fun weekly themes: Critters & Creatures (October 6-7), Superheroes & Villains (October 13-14), Pirates & Princesses (October 20-21) and Witches & Wizards (October 27-28).

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 steam-era railroad roundhouse complexes in the entire country. The Park is home to the famous “Movie Star Locomotive” Sierra No. 3®, which has an impressive history of starring in more than 200 film and television productions such as “High Noon,” “Back to the Future III” and “Petticoat Junction.”

Tickets for “Harvest Haunt Express” train rides (which include Park admission) are $15 adults, $10 youths ages 6-17, ages 5 and under are free.

As a black Caribbean woman living in America, I totally agree. I also think that black Americans keep themselves down by subscribing to this woe is me attitude. I cannot stand it. And I cannot for the life of me figure out why people hold onto it like a badge of honor. Maybe they don't think it's holding them back. They also have a huge problem with black people who do not subscribe to the same self depreciating ideas. Maybe it has something to do with their history, I don't know... But it is a pathetic attitude that needs to go!

      Michael did this while serving on the most committee of any supervisor (14), helping to grow new businesses in District 3 despite Planned Development hurdles and obstacles, and then working to remove PD.

      He is working to streamline the processes to repair/replace bridges, obtained much-needed State and Federal dollars to assist residents afflicted with Tree Mortality.

      Heck! We even have more fun festivals and a Christmas Parade, which he championed. There's so much more he's done in just 3.75 years. Thanks Mike!

Wish the past progressive of Calaveras would have saved our track and trains. Would be so awesome to still see them traveling around the county today.

    Michael helped the Bear Claw Bakery open its doors! And Soapworks! And CJ's! All of this without the "hurdles" of Planned Development. Golly Gee!
