Foothill Rails--Folsom,CA


Railroad Block Collection & History Museum
A neat little collection including two stations, a replica turntable and four pieces of rolling stock.

Year 2011 saw all the rolling stock moved to the wye (home of the Placerville & Sacramento Valley:2).
After reconstruction of the Railroad Block, only the caboose and museum cars will return to the depot site.
The final image is a 2021 Google Earth view of Railroad Block.
(Note: The Railroad Block has been completely reconstructed from 2015 to 2018)
