Romance on the Rails

2014 Valentine’s Day Train on the Niles Canyon Railway

A special Valentine's Day Wine tasting event

The Golden Gate Railroad Museum is pleased to announce that our 1940's vintage Southern Pacific lounge car #2979 will be available for reserved seating on the 2014 Valentine’s Day Train on the Niles Canyon Railway.

Mark your calendars and come out to experience Romance on the Rails when GGRM and The Pacific Locomotive Association host a Valentines Day Wine Train on Saturday February 15, 2014. You'll be served a selection of wines and Hors d'oeuvres onboard this luxurious Art Deco Lounge Car

Experience the magic of this elegant Art Deco lounge, as it winds through Niles Canyon on a two-hour round-trip ride from Sunol to Fremont and return. Your trip on the Southern Pacific 2979 is aboard a vintage 1940’s parlor lounge car restored to its original layout, appearance and atmosphere. The car features plush lounge seating and a semi-circular mahogany bar framed by etched glass and mirrors.

All seating in the Valentine Lounge is reserved. To purchase tickets, please visit our ticketing site.

1940's attire admired, but not required

The car is climate controlled for your comfort and enjoyment. For your comfort and safety our volunteer car attendants will be aboard the car to assist in boarding, detraining or if any assistance is needed during your trip.

Note: The Valentine Lounge is not wheelchair accessible due to the narrow aisles and doorways on our antique equipment.
