We are a non-profit, community heritage railroad located in the beautiful foothills
of the Sierra Nevada.
Throughout the year, we offer a range of different railroad experiences, from local festivals to special
events, from short demonstration rides to excursions of two hours or more!
Join us on a short trip across the prairie, or up the mountain to enjoy the dramatic views of the foothills.
Either way, you will want to bring your camera.
So... Climb Aboard, and let the Adventure Begin!
The 2016 Season has arrived at the Station!
The volunteers of Placerville & Sacramento Valley Railroad wish to thank everyone who helped make 2015 a banner year for our program! The introduction of the Full-Sized Train to our regular schedule helped drive a 40% increase in ridership in 2015, and our crews were pleased to host passengers from throughout the region, and from as far away as Hawaii, New Jersey, Australia and Europe! We could not have done this if the local community had not embraced our little railroad, made us part of your families, and shared our story with friends and relatives from around the globe. Also essential to our success was the unfailing support of the public officials and staff who helped us navigate the sometimes troubled political waters surrounding our program. Again... Thank You, One and All!
Our 2016 Schedule is posted HERE, so check it out and see all the exciting things we have in store for you and your family this year!
2016 is shaping up to be another difficult year for P&SVRR on the political front.
