Due to the covid-19 pandemic, all runs on the Amador Central Railroad are cancelled including April 11th and May 9th "Runs for the public" and April 25th "History Run". The remaining runs for the year will be decided upon as we find out how severe a risk this virus becomes. We are truly sorry to have to do this but we feel that we must provide a safe and healthy environment for our riders. Thank you for your understanding and your interest in the Amador Central Railroad. Take care and stay healthy.

Spring Flower Run on the Amador Central

May 1st. 2021

Amador County has just gone back up to the Red Tier and the Amador County Health Department will once again be allowing us to go ahead and hold a PRIVATE, family motorcar excursion on the AMC providing we adhere to the strict rules concerning the Covid 19 pandemic.

The run date is scheduled for Saturday, MAY 1ST, and we will be doing a run from Bryant Station in Ione up to Martel and return for lunch at Bryant and then do another run to the top and back.

Our members Chuck and Marika Ratto will be serving their famous

Hot Dog Specials at their very fair low price at lunch time while using approved Covid 19 handling procedures to provide safe and sanitary conditions.

Social distancing must also be practiced at all times. Wearing a mask while out of your motor car will also be a requirement.

Set on will take place starting at 7:00 a.m. on the 1st. with a safety meeting at 8:30 and departure from Bryant following the meeting.

When you arrive at Bryant Station, please remain in your automobiles until given further instructions for setting on.

Run fee is $50.00 for the two runs and checks are to be made out to RRCHS. Please send the check to me directly if you will be attending and I will send you the necessary forms you can print out, including a new NARCOA and AMC Covid 19 waiver along with any further details.

Thanks and hope you can make it!
