YourToyTrains, online Model Trains Store, recommends a visit to the Colfax Heritage Museum in Colfax, California. Located inside the former Southern Pacific Depot, the museum is adjacent to the first Transcontinental Railroad, now the Union Pacific Railroad's Oakland-Ogden Main Line via Donner Pass. Colfax is also a stop for the Amtrak California Zephyr. A great place to learn about the railroad town of Colfax and its interesting history, exibits include typewriters, early cash registers, in addition to railroad memorabilia. Colfax has a nice downtown that is also interesting to explore. YourToyTrains recommends T.J.'s Roadhouse in Colfax for a nice lunch.
