All aboard: Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad kiosk dedicated in style

The first passengers to arrive by rail in Nevada City in over 75 years make their way to the site of the former Nevada City Depot and the current Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Kiosk Saturday morning along Railroad Avenue, where members of the community gathered to officially commemorate the improvements made to Clamper’s Square.

The improvements to Clamper’s Square include the informational kiosk, display track and flatbed rail car, as well as new sidewalks. The efforts of all involved were congratulated, including the late Madelyn Helling, who was described as a tireless and passionate advocate for the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad.

A gas powered rail bus was shipped in from the nearby Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad to drive along the recently completed display track along Railroad Avenue in Nevada City. City officials and members of NCNGRR hope to connect the display track with the rail road museum someday.
