The railroad now stretches over five miles from McEwen to the historic gold town of Sumpter. Passing through beautiful countryside you’ll notice the land is scarred in places by mans’ incredible lust for wealth. Each piece of restored equipment has its own story to tell, ranging from the last surviving Sumpter Valley clerestory coach built in 1882 to the “youngsters” of the railroad, identical twin steam locomotives constructed by the American Locomotive Company for the SVRy in 1920. Our ever growing collection of railway artifacts encompasses a large part of the countries narrow gauge past, with cars from as far away as Pennsylvania and Alaska.
