Yard Sale
Saturday & Sunday, August 2 & 3
Our annual two-day indoor/outdoor Yard Sale starts promptly at 8am and runs until 3pm.  We always have a big selection of household items, power and hand tools, and a large number of model railroad engines, cars, and accessories.

Colfax Railroad Days 
Saturday & Sunday, September 13 & 14
The Narrow Gauge ran from Nevada City to Colfax, a trip of 22 miles.  Each year the
Placer Sierra Railroad Heritage Society and the City of Colfax celebrate the town’s railroad history during a two-day event called “Colfax Railroad Days”.  A group of our volunteers staff a booth at the annual event to represent the Museum, support our neighbors, and encourage public’s interest in railroading.

Christmas at the Railroad Museum
Saturday - December 6, 2014 - 10am-3pm

The Christmas Party on the first Saturday in December draws hundreds of children to the brightly decorated museum for an opportunity to visit Santa Claus and receive a gift. The event is filled with family fun and refreshments. Door prizes are awarded every hour plus a raffle and silent auction. Last year more than
1,100 people dropped by to see Santa. We hope to see you here.
