Work on slide #2 on the Amador Central Railroad, 11-25-2017.

A few of our members came out today and worked on reinstalling the ties and rails at slide one.  A lot of progress was made and for this we are very grateful for their donation of time and energy to the railroad.  We were rolling along at a good pace when a tool problem brought it to a halt.  Seems the driver that fits into the electric jack hammer had broken a weld and would no longer stay on the spike head.  We had some mauls on site and tried them but ended up breaking three handles.  So...........enough was enough and the older crowd was pooped anyhow and we broke up and went on our way home.  The AMC owes a debt of gratitude to all that lent a hand today.  Gary Reinoehl (ACHS) who was stung by a bee in his mouth and ended up stopping in at the ER, Rick Kreth, (with his Kubota mini excavator) Mark Demler, Jay Finklestein, Robert Cozad, Mike Cozad, Tom Correa,( with his Kubota loader) Larry Bowler, Art Clark, Francis Storey, Jay's cousin Dave, Paul Greenfield.  We are close to reopening the RR to the top.  Thanks All  You are the best!  Written By: Grant Vogel  Photos By: Mike Cozad

Working on the AMC, replaceing ties and replacing rail at the wash out location off Beaver Loop in Sunnybrook, 9-23-2017.

Despite the rain cutting the day short, the Amc Amador Central Railroad's first official public short run was a huge success! A total of 7 motor cars the carried a total of 29 excited, happy passengers from Hwy 104 to Sunnybrook. The day had to be cut short after the first run, after the rain in the late morning slickened the rails making it unsafe to make any further runs. The Amador Central Railroad's next public run takes place on Saturday, May 13th, 2017. So come on out next month on the 13th and take a ride on the rails. The approx. 1 hour ride costs only $10 dollars per person, ages 5 and over, and starts at Hwy 104 and goes up to Sunnybrook, winding through the beautiful Amador County county side, crossing the trestle over Hwy 88, and through beautiful pastures full of local cattle and of coarse you may spot some of the local wildlife as well. All proceeds go toward maintaining this beautiful and historic railroad. For more information on the runs and the railroad, visit
