Amador Central Railroad Christmas Run and Toy Drive

December 10, 2022

Welcome motorcar operators to our annual Christmas Run and Toy Drive on the picturesque Amador Central Railroad.  Our excursion will include two round trip runs between Rich Bryant Station and Martel, approximately 40-miles, and will take place rain or shine.  This is an opportunity to dazzle onlookers with your decorated motorcars and provide deserving children in Amador County with a joyful holiday.  Please bring a new unwrapped toy with you to support this worthy cause administered by the Amador County Sheriff’s Department.  Set on will begin at 8:00 am followed by a safety meeting at 10:00 am. First run will depart at 10:15 am and return at approximately 1:00 pm.  We will have lunch upon our return and Chuck and Marika will have their “Hot Dog Cart” with an expanded menu available for all to enjoy.  The second run will depart at 3:00 pm and return at approximately 6:00 pm with decorated cars in their full glory.  The run fee is $35.00 per motorcar, no High-Rail vehicles.  Be sure to sign up now to be part of this holiday excursion.  This is a NARCOA sanctioned event and ALL NARCOA RULES WILL APPLY!
