Larry and Peggy Schneider's Summer Travels
Designated a California Historical Landmark located in Jamestown where history comes to life with vintage steam trains, a working roundhouse, and the timeless Sierra Railway Shops. Larry tells us, “The water tower is the one that opened the TV show Petticoat Junction. For some dumb reason they built a cover over it. Also several old west movies were filmed using the equipment here.”
A fun-filled excursion for the entire family located only 10 minutes from the southern entrance of Yosemite National Park off of Highway 41. The historic railroad offers train rides, gold panning, an on-site rail museum, and a fun gifts & collectibles store. Open April through October.
