Description

Sunday Excursion Train Caboose Party

UNFORGETTABLE!

Due to Special Events for the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad, we will only be able to offer caboose rentals on our diesel engine Sundays.

Enjoy exclusive use of the caboose by you and your private party guests. Climb up into the cupola for a bird's-eye view of the train as it rolls through Niles Canyon, along the scenic route of North America's First Transcontinental Railroad, with a docent aboard to tell you about the railroad.

Photo/Caboose

The Santa Fe caboose provides a special ride for groups of up to 28 people (depending on whether they are adult-sized or child-sized). A serving table and counter 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 reservation fee is $75, plus the regular fare for each person. Come to the Sunol ticket window to get your special caboose tickets before your ride. The caboose is very popular, so be sure to reserve early.

You may bring your own food and drinks aboard the caboose to enjoy.

Your reservation also includes the use of three picnic tables at the Sunol Community Gardens, across Kilkare Road from our depot so your group can picnic there before and/or after your caboose ride.
