Description

The No. 119 will make five demonstration runs throughout the day at 10:00 AM, 11:30 AM, 1:00 PM, 3:00 PM, and 4:30 PM. The cold air allows the visitors to see more steam pour from the locomotive than they would in the summer months. This is a unique opportunity to see a steam locomotive in winter. 

A hand car and motor car will be available for rides. Rides on the handcar are limited to those five years and up. Free hot chocolate will be provided by our volunteer staff. 

A ranger program, "It's Snow Challenge: Snow Removal on the Transcontinental Railroad" will educate visitors on how snow was cleared from the tracks and the difficulties encounted by the Central Pacific Railroad as they built across the Sierra Nevadas.  

Reservation or Registration: No
