All aboard! The California State Railroad Museum is now offering excursion train rides to the general public on 12 pre-determined Tuesdays in 2014. For 12 Tuesdays in 2014, weekday guests can 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. For more information, call 916-445-6645 or visit www.csrmf.org
