The History of the SJ&E Railroad

Join local historian Norm Saude on a hike through time to explore the old railroad system and learn about the stories that shaped local history. Find out about the San Joaquin & Eastern Railroad which operated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada of Fresno County.
