FISH CAMP – After more than three weeks without the sounds of the steam locomotive whistles in the forest south of Fish Camp, the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad will open the gates this Saturday, Sept. 23.
When the Railroad Fire started on Aug. 29., just across the road from the popular destination, everyone was forced to evacuate with just a few moment’s notice. But this weekend, the staff is excited to welcome visitors and locals alike to enjoy the beautiful fall weather and a ride through the woods behind the historic Shay No. 10 locomotive, or on one of the Jenny Rail Cars.
The steam train will depart at 9:30 and 11 a.m. on Saturday, with Jenny Rail Cars running in between the steam train runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The snack bar will be open, along with the gift shop, museum and bookstore. Visitors can also pan for gold.
