Event description

Description

Private Car Seating in the Parlor Car on the Train of Lights.

2018 Ticket sales start: Saturday, October 13th, at 10:00 a.m.
for our Evening Trains, round-trip, departing from Niles at 4:30 P.M.

(Were you looking for the Night Train Parlor Car seating departing from Sunol?)

The Train of Lights has been a long-standing tradition for many families for more than a decade. This year, our Dining Car, x-SP 10001, will be converted to a Parlor Car on the Train of Lights. This will be reserved for only Parlor Car-ticketed passengers, with snacks served in the car, and car attendants (but there will not be a dining service in the car during the Train of Lights).

Niles Canyon Railway Train of Lights Diner Car as Parlor Car

On these early trains from Niles, you will be able to see this beautiful canyon on the first leg of the ride to Sunol, and see the changing of the fall colors, from some of the best seats on the train in a car appointed with the original Cuban Mahogany interior. Built in 1928, and restored to it's service appearance on the long-distance trains on the San Joaqin Daylight in the 1950s.

Niles Canyon Railway Train of Lights Diner at Dusk

Our antique coaches and our open cars are decorated for the season, inside and out, and our Parlor Car passengers will be able to wander through the entire train during the ride. Keep your ticket with you as you wander, as only Parlor Car passengers will be admitted into this car.

Niles Canyon Railway Train of Lights at Farwell BRidge

When the weather is good, the riders on the early train get to enjoy a beautiful sunset as we depart from Sunol, when you will fully experience the festive lighted decorations glowing inside and outside of the antique cars while enjoying the holiday music and some refreshments, and you'll arrive 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 Note: Eventbrite also charges a per-ticket fee, which is added to your order. The fee is listed next to the ticket price on the Registration Page where you select your tickets for the date(s) of your choice.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions page, since we will have answers to questions that you may not have thought about yet. We will even have a gift shop on the train! :-)

If you have further questions, please contact our Chief Station Agent at station-agent@ncry.org or by calling 510-996-8420.
