    Located in Old Sacramento, the California State Railroad Museum is a complex of historic facilities and unique attractions. Widely regarded as North America’s most popular railroad museum, there is something here for everyone. Throughout the year, experience lavishly restored trains, engaging exhibits, and unique special events.

    Every weekend April-September, ride behind a real steam locomotive! Rides take off from the Central Pacific Railroad Freight Depot. In 1876 the Central Pacific Railroad Freight Depot was a major freight station on the transcontinental railroad. It was the focal point for the interchange of all freight arriving or departing Sacramento daily by railroad, riverboat, and wagon. The Central Pacific Railroad Freight Depot was reconstructed in 1986, and is presently used as the passenger station for the California State Railroad Museum's excursion Train Rides, operated by the Sacramento Southern Railroad.
