Rail enthusiasts were buzzing Monday morning when they heard about the Ringling Brothers Circus train that would be traveling through Colfax. According to Paul Lanyi, the eastbound train was headed for its next circus show in Salt Lake City. The circus train’s sighting added to the excitement building up in town as Colfax Railroad Days approach on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1 and 2. The two fun-filled days of activities will feature a visit by a historic train courtesy of the Western Pacific Railroad Museum of Portola.
