California - El Dorado Western Railroad

Placerville, CA - The El Dorado County Historical Museum opened its doors to the public in 1974 and is supported, in part, by the County of El Dorado. The Museum's diverse collections and programs focus on the rich history of El Dorado County. It is operated by a Museum Administrator and Volunteers as part of the El Dorado County Library Department.

Rides are given on historic Gang Cars which were used by railroad inspectors, officials, workers, and others to travel the rails. The round trip takes 30 to 40 minutes, and will return you to the place you boarded.

Occasional special "Long Runs" operating from Shingle Springs Depot to El Dorado Station, and returning to Shingle Springs Depot taking about 2 hours for the round trip. Special pricing will apply.
