An impromptu Trump Drive that was organized via social media a few days ago and expecting maybe 30 vehicle, exploded into a community-wide full-fledged, fully-loaded freight "Trump Train" traveled the roads of Amador County with well over 400 cars, trucks, motorhomes, boats, motorcycles and more. The “Train” gathered south of Jackson in Scottsville, traveled north on Highway 49 to Sutter Creek, traveled down the grade to downtown Sutter Creek and then up by Amador High School and regrouped on the Highway 49 Bypass by the Sutter Creek Bridge. With California Highway Patrol escort, they headed south and back toward Jackson.
Meanwhile as the beginning of the parade neared Jackson, the end of the “train” was still on it’s way north and still traveling toward Sutter Creek. The estimated length of the Trump Train was thought to be from three to four miles took nearly two hours to settle down sometime after sunset. Despite the massive Trump rally traffic, few delays to locals and visitors occurred due to the peaceful and respectful drivers along with the assistance of local law enforcement, the Amador County Sheriff's Office, and California Highway Patrol units who helped to keep the traffic flowing.
At the conclusion of the "Trump Train” an overflow crowd gathered at Mel & Faye's Diner by the Busi Parking Lot to enjoy Taco Tuesday food and libations and enjoy the company after months of social distancing and shelter in place.
