September 13th & 14th — 10am to 4pm daily
Colfax Railroad Days is an annual community event that celebrates the history and continuing role railroads play today in moving passengers and freight in our Placer County region. This is a wonderfully educational and entertaining family experience that brings nearly every aspect of railroading close up to the residents of Northern California.
All displays and attractions at Colfax Railroad Days are FREE!
This is your one opportunity each year to sit in the engineer’s seat by boarding a train locomotive. Learn about the huge specialized train equipment that railroaders use to keep the tracks clear of heavy snowfall in the winter and keep the trains moving.
Colfax Railroad Days is produced by the Placer Sierra Railroad Heritage Society with the cooperation and assistance of these Colfax non-profit organizations—Sierra Vista Community Center and Colfax Garden Club.
We also wish to acknowledge the participation of individual members of the National Association of Retired and Veteran Railway Employees (NARVRE) who will be on hand to explain the operation and function of the railroad equipment to our visitors. Their stories of working on the Mountain in the winter snows are always gripping!
First, we want to thank our Event Sponsors and Supporters for their financial support so we can make this a fun and FREE family event! Let’s all support them too!
