I offer blog No. 3 as I finish the fall issue of The Dispatch (the El Dorado Western Railway newsletter) and prepare for our annual holiday social this Friday ...
Last month, the El Dorado Western Railway hosted rides on the county museum's track inspection car on the former Southern Pacific Placerville Branch in El Dorado, between El Dorado and Blanchard roads.
The ride gave us a chance to tell key people and organizations of our plans to build a railroad park and demonstration railroad on the site of the old SP railroad depot at El Dorado.
I'll post a picture of the Camino, Placerville and Lake Tahoe track inspection car tomorrow.
