THen hearing the whistle blow and the clinking sound of the rails as the locomotive makes its way up the grade from the "Y"...THere are bound to be many eager passengers!  For some residents here, this is an all too distant memory; for others it only exists in the mind's eye, but for Everyone, it will one day be a realistic re-creation of the days when steam and iron colored the landscape.  Recently the County Board of Sup.'s approved preliminary plans for the developement of a railroad musem in the town of El Dorado.  The proposed El Dorado County Historical Railroad Park, located on the old Southern Pacific right of way, will display and operate railroading artifacts currently housed at the El Dorado County Historical Museum.  Artifacts have been collected and preserved-many restored-from the county's rich railroading past for many.Steam locamotives in El Dorado County

Years.Survivors of a time when logging companies harvested "green gold" from makeshift camps like Caldor and Pino Grande, include the 102-year-old Shay Number 4 Locomotive, a tally-ho Rail Bus, an 1892 Porter Number 6 Switch Engine, a skidshed, sidings, and a bobby car, just to name a few-which was used to haul lumber via the 1200-foot-high cableway over the American River.  The Railroad will operate between El Dorado Road and Blanchard Road.  They also plan to recreat the original depot.  Cool 'eh?
