Lovely train ride with Christmas lights during the season. Lots of fun for the kids. The steam locomotive is the cherry on the top.

Kids of all ages will enjoy a railroad trip through the canyon! Special steam train weekends or the holiday train are extra special!!

Beautiful ride through the canyon. Special trips (holiday, e.g.) are exceptional. Especially great when there is a steam locomotive.

Beautiful ride through the hills, at its prettiest in the spring with poppies bursting out through the hillside.. quaint little towns on either side, both Niles and Sunol,.. fun way to spend a sunday afternoon. The best ride though is the winter ride when the train is all lit up.. expensive ride but the money keeps the trains going. Boys of all ages will really love it.

Take a few hours on a weekend and treat the family to an old time steam locomotive/train ride thru the beautiful Sunol foothills. Fun for all ages as you traverse the hills and over the streams from the funky train station in Sunol to the old time movie town of Niles. Travel on open or closed cars as you feel the old west.
