Event Details

Ride a Caboose on our Train of Lights. 

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 Sunol at 7:15, the canyon will be dark, and the lights on our train light the scenery as we wind our way through the canyon, pulled by historic locomotives.

Train of Lights at night in Sunol

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.

Party Bag

PARTY PACKS are available!

A grab bag full of railroad theme party favors just right for young caboose-ridin' revelers. There's train-loads of fun in every bag! There are three different sizes. You can ask to have some ready for your arrival when you make your reservation, and you can pay for them at the gift shop on the day of your train.
