"All aboard the SMITH RANCH & JULIAN RAILROAD!" Experience the historic side of Julian you've never seen before as you ride on our 18" gauge mining train. Beautiful scenery abounds on the 1-mile round trip as you cross over two trestle bridges and negotiate a 225 degree curve to disembark at our real Smith Ranch 1870 Julian gold rush mine. While exploring the mine, you'll see pick marks made in the rock 143 years ago. Keep an eye out for the quartz veins that led to gold. Those who wish may ride into the Smith Ranch mine in our 1898 mine car and later try their hand at panning for gold nuggets. It's all part of the tour. "All aboard the SR&J!"
