On these evening trains from Sunol, this ride is all about the lights! You will board mid-train, and see the bright decorations in the different coaches on your way to the Dome Car, with snacks and drinks included with your ticket.

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.

You get to experience the festive lighted decorations glowing inside and outside of our antique coaches while enjoying the holiday music and some refreshments.
