Description

“Diesel Days!”

On one weekend each month from April thru September, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are offering special train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad featuring two visually-exciting and gracefully-styled diesel locomotives. Especially when these eye-catching diesels are in operation, guests of all ages will enjoy taking a memorable and relaxing weekend excursion train ride that is reminiscent of train travel from an earlier era. Those aboard are treated to a six-mile, 45-minute roundtrip excursion along the levees of the Sacramento River. The train features a combination of vintage closed coaches with comfortable seats and open-air “gondolas” with bench style seating. Excursion train ride tickets are available to book online in advance at www.csrmf.org or can be purchased in-person starting at 10:30 a.m. the day of the train ride (based on availability) at the Sacramento Southern Railroad ticket office located on Front Street between J and K Streets. 

 

Cost Regular train rides*: $10 adults; $5 youths ages 6-17; free for children ages 5
