Emma Sweeney

June 9, 2011 by admin

In April 2011 the Amador County, CA, Board of Supervisors voted to release to DRHS the full size wood, fiberglass, and metal model of the Emma Sweeney. It is a colorful replica of RGS 20 dressed up for the 1950 movie A Ticket to Tomahawk. RGS 20 was used for shots on the tracks, and the model was used for shots off the tracks, pulled by mules down a Silverton street, carried in pieces over Molas Pass, and pulled along the old air strip on Reservoir Hill in Durango. We will restore it to its movie appearance.
