Thank you for letting the whistle blow in Historic El Dorado

Sunday, June 26, 2011, was a memorable day for all who experienced some good old-fashioned fun along with helping to support the El Dorado Western Railroad. Many activities kept everyone busy; a vintage car show, craft faire, train and stagecoach rides, great food and an ice cream social. Events do not happen without a lot of monetary and public support, countless volunteer hours, materials and labor, and general participation.
