All Day Railtown 1897 to Celebrate as Historic Steam Locomotive Baldwin No. 28 Returns to Service
Jamestown, CA...Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation proudly invite families, friends and rail fans of all ages to celebrate the return to service for the historic steam locomotive Baldwin No. 28 on Saturday, June 1, 2019. To mark the special occasion, guests to Railtown 1897 State Historic Park will enjoy complimentary Speeder rides, live musical entertainment performed by Dave Rainwater, fun giveaways, historic Roundhouse tours, and food available for purchase from the Kiwanis Club of Sonora. As a highlight, excursion train rides behind Baldwin No. 28 will be the main attraction, departing at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.



As background, the Sierra Railway first purchased Baldwin No. 28 in 1922. Weighing a whopping 71 tons, the massive steam locomotive was recently rebuilt in the historic Roundhouse and Shops in Jamestown. While not as famous as Sierra No. 3® (the “Movie Star Locomotive”), Baldwin No. 28 has been a loyal, hard-working hauler of all types of freight, and has also been featured in several films and television shows. The powerful locomotive was once used to haul construction materials to dam construction projects around Tuolumne County, delivering gravel from the Atlas Quarry in Oakdale to several transfer sites. The cars of material were transferred to the rail lines that went to construction sites for the Don Pedro and Melones Dams. Box carloads of concrete were hauled for the building of the O’Shaughnessy Dam, and historic photos show the train hauling huge turbines on flat cars to the Melones site.

Excursion train ride guests on June 1 will enjoy a memorable six-mile, 45-minute round trip ride behind Baldwin No. 28 along the rails of the famous “Movie Railroad.” Online reservations in advance are encouraged and on-site tickets can be purchased at the Depot Store on a first-come, first-served basis if still available. All train ride tickets include Park admission and cost $15 for adults, $10 for youth ages 6-17 and are free for children five and under. Additionally, a variety of newly designed Baldwin No. 28 merchandise is available in the Depot Store. For more information about the Park, merchandise and/or excursion train rides at Railtown 1897 SHP, please call 209-984-3953 or visit www.railtown1897.org.

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.


A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.
