About PLACERVILLE AND SACRAMENTO VALLEY RAILROAD INC

Location:

705 SIBLEY ST, FOLSOM, CA 95630, US

Mission Statement

Placerville & Sacramento Valley Railroad is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving California’s rich railroad history. Our mission is to protect, preserve, and develop the Folsom-Placerville railroad right-of-way, celebrating its legacy through the creation and operation of a sustainable community heritage railroad for the benefit, use, education, and enjoyment of the general public. We operate scenic train excursions and motorcar rides year-round over 15 miles of track between Folsom and Latrobe on Southern Pacific Railroad’s historic Placerville Branch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains of northern California.

Description

We are an entirely volunteer managed and operated excursion railroad operator, providing train rides to the public on portions of the historic Southern Pacific Placerville branch line.

Over the last 5 years, year-over-year growth has averaged more than 25%, and significant growth is expected to continue during the next phase of development. This is an exciting time at P&SVRR, following a string of political developments that continue to favor expansion of the program and the addition of several more pieces to our growing collection of railroad equipment. This will include the first steam locomotive to run on the Placerville branch since 1957.

It has always been the vision of P&SVRR to become a World Class Railroad Attraction, and in so doing provide significant economic, educational and cultural benefits to the city of Folsom as well as other communities we serve in the region. There is no better time to assume a fulfilling and meaningful role at this community heritage railroad.
