1920s Rotary Snowplow & “Snowbound in the Sierra” Exhibit
For a limited time, visitors to the California State Railroad Museum have a special opportunity to see a 251,000-pound rotary snowplow from the Museum’s impressive collection along with a compelling exhibit titled “Snowbound in the Sierra.” The SP MW205 (formerly known as SP 715) snowplow on display was built in 1920, converted to electric in 1958, retired by Union Pacific in 2004 and was donated to the Railroad Museum in 2008. Since then, the historic snowplow has been housed in the Shops in the Sacramento Railyards except for short-term displays at the Railroad Museum each winter. Currently on display in the Museum’s Roundhouse, the rotary snowplow and companion “Snowbound in the Sierra” exhibit will remain on public view through March 2019. Viewing the exhibit and locomotive are included in Museum admission: $12 for adults; $6 for youths ages 6-17; free for children ages 5 and under. For more information about the snow plow, exhibit or the California State Railroad Museum in general, please call 916-323-9280 or visit

Chinese New Year Festival & Parade
This eighth annual family-friendly celebration honors the early Chinese Gold Rush pioneers and railroad workers of the Sierra. 2019 also celebrates the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, which revolutionized travel from one end of the United States to the other. Thousands upon thousands of Chinese immigrants helped build the massive railroad in the 1860s. The community parade begins at noon from the Chinese Monument at the entrance to the parking lot on Commercial Street, the site of the old Chinese Quarter. Chinese ceremonial Lion Dancers and a 72’ Chinese Dragon from Eastern Ways Martial Arts of Sacramento will prance down Commercial Street, with Grass Valley Taiko Drummers, school children, and other community entries. The mini-parade will end at the Three Forks Bakery and Brewery parking lot, where the Lion Dancers and Dragon dancers will spearhead an afternoon of Asian culture and entertainment. Food would be available for sale by Kaliko’s Hawaiian Kitchen and homemade desserts by Xiao Mao (Little CATS Culture Club). Exhibitors and vendors will populate the parking lot. We are seeking parade entries, entertainers, sponsors, and volunteers. Contact Jeannie Wood at The event is a cultural enrichment program of the Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra (CATS). See
