Our 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!
Our antique coaches and our open cars are decorated for the season, inside and out, and we enjoy holiday music on our ~70-minute round-trip to Sunol and back. On this first leg of the ride, 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 these early trains often enjoy a beautiful sunset as we depart from Sunol on the return leg of the trip, and then you will fully experience the festive lighted decorations glowing inside and outside of our antique cars while enjoying the holiday music and some refreshments, arriving back in Niles in time for dinner.
We sometimes have last-minute tickets available! Come to the station 20-30 minutes 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. :-)
Your 2016 Train of Lights souvenir ticket is worth a 10% discount at the Gift Shop at our Sunol Depot on the evening of your train (offer expires December 30, 2016).
If you have further questions, please contact our Chief Station Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 510-996-8420.
