Food on the Skunk Train Run to Northspur

The Skunk Train web site says that there's a concessionaire at the turnaround point (Nortthspur). Anyone know what type of food choices are offered? I'll be taking the half day trip next month bet. Fort Bragg and Northspur and am wondering if packing a lunch might be a better option than the concessionaire's fare. Just looking for something beyond hot dogs and burgers.

There is a full BBQ lunch at Northspur as well as snacks and Mendocino wine & beer available on the train going to and from. If you have something specific you want to eat, bring it. Otherwise, they have BBQ chicken, salads and more...

Have fun - it's a great trip!

Just found out from a staffer working at the Skunk Train office that their policy allows NO outside food to be brought on the train. Bring cash since the onboard snack car and lunch items at Northspur are "cash only" transactions as far as I've heard.

Sacramento to Fort Bragg/Mendocino area. Thinking of driving to Willets and taking the Skunk train to F. Bragg, then rent car and stay 2-3 days in Mendocino/F.Bragg area (leaving car for extended (2-3 days) parking. IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?? If so.....baggage restrictions on train? (we plan to PACK LIGHT!)

It's probably possible if that's what you want to do. But, I'd call the Skunk Train and ask them or at least post a separate thread that might be read by folks who aren't interested in the food on the run to Northspur.
