Make it a date! Experience the magic of a bygone era as you travel through scenic Niles Canyon on a vintage train from Sunol to Niles and back. En route, youÕll be served specially-selected wines from the Livermore Valley, paired with hors dÕoeuvres.
The train features Southern Pacific parlor-lounge car #2979, newly restored to its elegant 1940s appearance. Winner of an Art Deco Society of California preservation award, the car features plush lounge seating and a semi-circular mahogany bar framed by etched glass and mirrors. The car is climate-controlled for your comfort, and attendants will be on board to assist during your trip. An open-air car is also included on the train for your viewing enjoyment. 1940s attire is admired, but not required. Trains depart the restored Sunol depot located at 6 Kilkare Road, Sunol at 12:00 noon and 3 p.m. Seating is limited. Tickets are $75 per person.
