Amador Central Railroad Christmas Run & Toy Drive

December 16, 2023

Welcome motorcar operators to our annual Christmas Run and Toy Drive on the picturesque Amador Central Railroad.  Our excursion will include one round trip run between Rich Bryant Station and Martel, approximately 20 miles, and will take place rain or shine. This is an opportunity to dazzle onlookers with your decorated motorcar 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 9:00 am followed by a safety meeting at 10:00 am.  We will depart at 10:15 am and return at approximately 2:30 pm.  We will have lunch during our stop in Martel. Please bring your favorite lunch to enjoy.  The run fee is $50.00 per motorcar.  Operators who decorate their car and bring a toy will not pay a run fee.  No High-Rail vehicles.  Be sure
