HISTORICAL SOCIETY Inc.
Come join in for 4 days of Narrow Gauge presentations and activities as we explore the NG Railroads that once roamed the high mountains and lower foothills of the Sierra Nevada Range. Through presentations and hands-on activities, we will venture into the history of these railroads and discuss such topics as the locations, structures, equipment, and the people that kept it all on track.
We will also talk about modeling these NG lines and conduct a model show where you can bring your favorite NG modeling projects to show off. You will be able to examine and inspect up close the many pieces of NG equipment that the museum has on location and can even get an opportunity to ride in one of the restored West Side Lumber Company logging cabooses.
There will be Steam, 2 Rail Cars, and WS Plymouth activity, rides and switching in the yard. We will once again hold our West Side Lumber Company day with all West Side activities and the West Side Restoration Tri-Tip and Chicken BBQ.
