Huell Howser and young Railtown fan Sean, of Sonora.

Huell Howser, California broadcaster and host of “California’s Gold” visited Jamestown today to film an episode of his well-known show.  He also made a visit to the National Hotel, the Jamestown Jail, and Giannelli’s Vineyards for an episode that will air sometime later this year.

Two sold-out trains pulled by the Sierra No. 3 ran at 2 PM and 3 PM, in part to accomodate filming, but many locals and visitors enjoyed the special opportunity!

The Sierra No. 3 is next scheduled to run on August 7th and 8th at 3PM and 4:30 PM each day.  The ride will include refreshment service and a photo-run-by.  Advanced tickets are available online.
