2011 Niles Canyon Railway
The tickets sold on this page are for General Seating.
The Train of Lights has been a long-standing tradition for many families for more than a decade. Come and join us for this special event! Park in the public lots in the Downtown Niles district in Fremont, and ride the free antique buses to our train platform.
Our antique coaches and our open cars are decorated for the season, inside and out, and we enjoy holiday music on our half-hour-long trip to Sunol. On these early trains, you will be able to see this beautiful canyon on the ride to Sunol, and see the changing of the fall colors.
When the weather is good, the riders on the early train get to enjoy a beautiful sunset as we depart from Sunol, when you will fully experience the festive lighted decorations glowing inside and outside of the antique cars while enjoying the holiday music and some refreshments, returning you to Niles in time for dinner.
We sometimes have last-minute tickets available! Come to the station an hour before the train and ask the station agent to add you to the waiting list for that day. We'll also tweet about day-of-train ticket availability, if you want to follow @toots4ncry.
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions page, since we will have answers to questions that you may not have thought about yet. :-)
Thank you for supporting our Western Railway Heritage Museum.
