Christmas at the Railroad Museum 
Saturday - December 9, 2017 - 10am-3pm

The Christmas Party on the second 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 1,200 people dropped by to see Santa.


It'a great day for the whole family, we hope to see you here.

Welcome to the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum

​​Ride the completely restored historic Railbus 97 on 30-minute trip from the NCNGRR Museum, through the beautiful new Inn Town Campground, to the Northern Queen Inn and return.  The route passes the ruins of the New Mohawk Mine along Gold Run Creek and parallels the original roadbed of the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad (1876-1942).

Admission is free.  However, donations are encouraged and Railbus 97 can operate only through the support of its passengers.

Railbus Operations - June through October.   Saturdays only, weather permitting
