    Located in film-friendly Tuolumne County the Sierra Railroad is one of the most versatile railroad locations anywhere. Over 300 motion pictures, television shows and commercials have featured this 50 mile railroad. We have things you can't find in Southern California, small towns with looks ranging from the 19th-century to the present and scenery that doubles the Great Plains, Midwest, Rockies, Appalachians, Ozarks and rural South. Combine these locations with period and contemporary passenger and freight trains and you can find exactly what your script calls for, close to home, in an area known for its hospitality. But don't take our word for it. Ask someone who's filmed here!
  • Contemporary Trains

    The Sierra Railroad Company regularly operates a variety of diesel locomotives as part of its normal freight service to communities in the Mother Lode. Contemporary freight trains are part of its normal workday activity. We can accomodate your needs day or night, day in and day out.

    Our weekend passenger trains are available for your needs during the week. We can even accomadate an Amtrak train. Amtrak may be the only source for the latest style in passenger equipment. But we are the best source for diverse locations you can control.
  • Period Trains

    By working in close cooperation with the folks at Railtown 1897 State Historic Park you can have a wide selection of period freight and passenger trains, including authentic trains of the old west. in settings that range from "Dodge City" locales to rugged mountains.
  • Freight Yards

    Need a train yard with multiple tracks where people can get lost? We can do that.
