Winding through picturesque coastal redwoods in California's Santa Cruz Mountains, the Roaring Camp & Big Trees Narrow Gauge railroad carries passengers on an unforgettable steam-powered odyssey.|
Of the several operational steam locomotives on the Roaring Camp & Big Trees roster, two 3-foot gauge Shays do the bulk of the work. No. 1, the Dixiana, is a 42-ton, two-truck Shay built in 1912. No. 7, the Sonora, is a 60-ton three-truck Shay built in 1911, and once served the Westside Lumber Company.
The Roaring Camp & Big Trees has been in operation since 1963. Founded by the late F. Norman Clark, the railroad gives visitors a sense of what life was like in the old west. Young and old alike can delight in the sound of steam whistles echoing off the mountains.
Join us for a look at this steam-powered railroad through the California redwoods!
