I live by the Shingle Springs Depot, and enjoy watching all types of people enjoy the tracks/trail. I love the train and the folks who are keeping our train history alive. As a little girl, I lived on South Shingle road. Every morning I would run out to the clearing and wave to the Engineer and Caboose man, and they would wave and toot the horn. If you haven't ridden the train, do! The ride is fun and filled with stories, and the landscape is seen from a fresh view. It makes a good family activity, bum pity-bump, the world slows down a little and your children hear a little Gold Country history, enjoy!
