Base Lake Bulletin

It's always nice to read unsolicited publicity in the community. This piece was published in the April 2007 issue of the Bass Lake Bulletin. The Bass Lake Community is situated along Bass Lake Road in Western El Dorado County.

Association president John E. Thompson wrote the following in his monthly president's message:
All you railroad fans may be interested to know that the El Dorado County Museum also houses the El Dorado Western Railroad Foundation, a group of railroad buffs that are restoring several rail cars of the old narrow-gauge Diamond & Caldor Railway. It was primarily a logging railroad, but it was also licensed to haul passengers and freight. The group is comprised of volunteers dedicated to creating an historically accurate logging railroad facility, through research and restoration, in the county.
Thompson also mentioned the efforts of the El Dorado & Sacramento Historical Railroad Association to develop an excursion train from Folsom eastward toward Placerville.
