Welcome to Colfax Railroad Days!

September 13th & 14th — 10am to 4pm daily

Colfax Railroad Days is an annual event that celebrates the history and continuing role railroads play today in moving passengers and freight.  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.

See all the cool Attractions and check the latest Updates
