All aboard!  A chance to own your own railroad in Fairfax.

A slice of Marin history is coming on the market this week and as the saying goes, they really don’t make them like this anymore.  If you were a kid living in Fairfax back in the 60s or 70s you may have ridden the Raccoon Gulch railway, a 7.5 gauge line that wound for about a fifth of a mile through train aficionado Gordon Adams’ property in Cascade Canyon.  The home and grounds are soon to be up for sale, complete with tracks, tunnels and a mini locomotive.  The property is listed by Fred Kusin with Frank Howard Allen Realtors.

I had an opportunity to preview this place last week.  The two story, 4 bedroom house is relatively modest, but the the lot is pretty amazing–a beautiful, sunny, flat, tree-studded 1.8 acres or so bordered by a babbling creek.  The property exemplifies the combination of quirky charm and natural beauty that makes Fairfax such a special place.  If you happen to be a train fan you shouldn’t miss the chance to check it out.  And if you rode the Raccoon Gulch line as a child, we’d love to hear your stories or see your pictures.
