Event Details

Reserved Seating in the Dome Car on the Train of Lights.

For our early trains, departing from Niles at 4:30 P.M.

(Were you looking for the Late Dome Car seating departing from Sunol?)

Consider Reserved Seating in the  Holiday Club Lounge, or host a party in a Private Caboose!

The Train of Lights has been a long-standing tradition for many families for more than a decade.  This year, our Dome Observation Car, x-ATSF 505, will be Reserved Seating, with snacks served in the car, and car attendants.

On these early trains from Niles, you will be able to see this beautiful canyon on the first leg of the ride to Sunol, and see the changing of the fall colors, from some of the best seats on the train in the observation dome.

View from the Dome Car, Niles Canyon Railway

Our antique coaches and our open cars are decorated for the season, inside and out, and our Dome Car passengers will be able to wander through the entire train during the ride.

Train of Lights 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.

On the return leg of our trip, you'll be able to see our lit train, trailing behind us as we weave back through the canyon, and you'll arrive back in  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.
