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.
