The Sierra Railroad is like getting two railroads in one - the Sierra Railroad in Oakdale, California which carries freight, and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park, which is run by California State Parks. The freight railroad operates with Baldwin S12 diesel locomotives. Railtown operates former Sierra Railway steam locomotives, two of which are an 1892 Rogers-built 4-6-0 and a Lima-built 3-truck Shay. You'll see both the steam and diesel power in this look at the Sierra.
Sierra Iron Horse Roundup: On Labor Day weekend 2001, the Sierra Railroad in Oakdale held it's first steam festival: the Iron Horse Roundup. The Sierra #28, 2-8-0 Baldwin and Mason County #7 were the stars of the show. Former Southern Pacific #2467, a 4-6-2 Baldwin is also featured. There's a foot race between runners and a steam locomotive, hand car races, garden railways, and much more.
