Our Vision

We are passionate about history, and the role that railroads played in the development of our nation. Our development of this railroad corridor allows us to share that history with our community, to "give back", through our efforts and our vision.

As it says in our Mission Statement, we are committed to “...Protect, Preserve, and Develop the Folsom-Placerville Railroad Right-of-Way...”. To that end, our vision is quite simple.

Our goals are:

  • To protect and preserve the rail corridor for future generations
  • To have El Dorado County ratify our current Operating License
  • To expand our operations AND maintenance in El Dorado County
  • To have our Operating License renewed by ALL parties in 2018
  • To accelerate our ongoing track and bridge improvement programs
  • To increase the number of operating days for our full-sized train
  • To acquire, restore, and operate a growing variety of equipment
  • To further develop the rail corridor through:
    • Compelling excursion offerings
    • Local business partnerships
    • Trail and infrastructure development
    • Special events to raise public awareness
    • Partnerships with other railroad organizations

Our broader vision is to see that P&SVRR is an attraction that boosts our area's reputation, brings more visitors to our area, and has a positive effect on our local economy. For our locals, we would like to increase awareness of our history and heritage, and put them in touch with the outdoors, right in their backyard. For our future generations, we would like to leave them a little piece of history that they can not only remember, but cherish!
