For Father's Day, treat dad to a very special weekend excursion train ride on the Sacramento Southern Railroad that will feature two visually-exciting and gracefully-styled diesel locomotives as part of the popular weekend excursion train rides. Fathers and grandfathers will enjoy taking a memorable and relaxing weekend excursion train ride that is reminiscent of train travel from an earlier era. Those aboard 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. Same-day general admission weekend excursion train ride tickets are available in-person on a first-come, first serve basis starting at 10:30 a.m. the day of the train ride at the Sacramento Southern Railroad ticket office. First-class El Dorado tickets are available to reserve in advance at www.californiastaterailroadmuseum.org and groups interested in reserving the El Dorado for a regularly scheduled ride should call 916-445-2560.
