The Best View on the Train!


Enjoy the exclusive use of the caboose by you and your private party guests, on the end of our acclaimed holiday train. Climb up into the cupola for a bird's-eye view of the train as it weaves along the scenic route of North America's First Transcontinental Railroad, through Niles Canyon, with a docent aboard to narrate the ride.

Looking up to the Cupola

Departing from Niles (Fremont) at 4:30, you will get to see the canyon during sunset, as the lights become more promenent on the return trip to Niles. (There will not be a chance to get off the train in Sunol this year.) On the return trip, as the sun sets, the lights become the focus of attention.

Train of Lights Sunol Sunset

The Santa Fe cupola caboose provides a special ride for groups of up to 24 people (or 28, if some of them are child-sized). Two small serving tables are available on-board for serving your refreshments. There are windows on the main floor, but the best view of the train is from the seats high up in the cupola.

The cost is $600, for up to 24 riders. The caboose is very popular, so be sure to reserve early.

You may bring your own food and drinks aboard the caboose to enjoy.
