We toured Northern California with a focus on natural landmarks and of course, the history of the gold rush became an important theme. The Railtown 1897 State Historic Park was a great place to end our visit as it's history ties in with the end of the Gold Rush ...too late to keep the placer mines stocked with wood. The work shop has every tool, equipment and train parts imaginable. We even got to watch and hear about work being done on an engine. Many movies have been filmed using some of these trains. It was an enjoyable tour and browsing through the buildings and trains was fun.
