Since 1970, the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad has been carrying passengers through the picturesque scenery of Oak Meadow Park and Vasona Park in Los Gatos, California.
The railroad operates on approximately one mile of 18 inch gauge track. In 2006, the railroad had three operational locomotives on its roster, one steam engine and two diesels.
The railroad started when Southern Pacific engineer William "Billy" Jones found the No. 2 steam engine on the docks in San Francisco in 1939, destined to become scrap metal. Billy Jones purchased the engine and restored it to operation, running it on weekends at his ranch in Los Gatos.
After Billy's death in 1968, the not-for-profit Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad Corporation purchased the equipment and moved it to its current location. Join us for a look at this amazing miniature railroad in the summer of 2006!
