The Train of Lights has been a long-standing tradition for many families for more than two decades. Come and join us for this special event! We have many antique coaches with inside seating, and we have some Open Cars with roofs where you can enjoy some of the best views of the canyon as our train makes the ~70 minute round trip to Niles and back.
Our antique coaches and our open cars are decorated for the season, inside and out, and we enjoy holiday music on our ~70-minute trip to Niles and back to Sunol. These evening trains will run in the dark, and the lights will stand out all along our trip.
Near the Full Moon (December 13), the canyon will be bathed in moonlight, showing visitors another side to this beautiful canyon. On the New Moon nights (around November 30th and December 28th and 30th), the canyon is at it's darkest, and we light the area as our colorful train weaves it's way through the canyon. Come and enjoy this special season in the canyon on our special trains.
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).
