Railroad Museum Announces Tuesday Train Rides

SACRAMENTO — As an expansion of the well-established weekday train ride program for local school groups, the California State Railroad Museum is now offering excursion train rides to the general public on pre-determined Tuesdays in 2014.

Tuesday Train Rides are available on the following dates:  Feb. 18; March 4, 11, 18 & 25; April 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29 and May 6.  Two train ride times will be available at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on the scheduled Tuesdays when the trains are running.

Excursion train rides are normally available on weekends and some holidays (once the season officially starts) but now weekday guests can also delight in the sights, smells and sounds of an authentic, working locomotive as it rolls along the levees of the Sacramento River.  Appealing to all ages, the experience offers guests with the chance to enjoy train travel from an earlier era. Passengers are treated to a six-mile, 45-minute roundtrip excursion along the levees of the Sacramento River. The train features a combination of vintage closed coaches with comfortable seats and open-air “gondolas” with bench style seating.

All excursion trains depart from the Central Pacific Railroad Freight Depot in Old Sacramento (on Front Street between J and K Streets). Tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for youths (ages 6-17 and are free for children ages 5 and younger). Weekday train ride tickets are only available in-person on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10:30 a.m. the day of the train ride at the Sacramento Southern Railroad ticket office.
