Between 1897 and 1955 this shops[sic] complex, including freight house, roundhouse, turntable and car shops, was Sierra Railway's main locomotive and car maintenance facility. Sierra served the hardrock mining and lumbering industries, and assisted construction of regional dams and reservoirs. Sierra also became California's best known movie railroad, decorating Sierra locomotives and cars to play many roles in movies and television.
