1940s attire is admired, but not required.
Experience the magic of a bygone era as you travel through scenic Niles Canyon on a vintage train from Sunol to Niles and back. En route, you'll be served specially-selected wines from the Livermore Valley, paired with hors d’oeuvres.
This train features the Golden Gate Railroad Museum Southern Pacific parlor-lounge car #2979, newly restored to its elegant 1940s appearance. Winner of an Art Deco Society of California preservation award, the car features plush lounge seating and a semi-circular mahogany bar framed by etched glass and mirrors. The car is climate-controlled for your comfort, and attendants will be on board to assist during your trip. An open-air car is also included on the train for your viewing enjoyment.
Trains depart from the Sunol depot at 12:00 noon and 3:00pm. Seating is limited. Tickets are $75+$4 fee per person and are available at www.ncry.org or www.ggrm.org. The parlor-lounge car is not wheelchair-accessible due to the narrow passages on our vintage equipment. (This event is cohosted by the Pacific Locomotive Association and the Golden Gate Railroad Museum.)
No personal food or drink allowed on train.
