  • Located in Suisun California, this vintage Railway ride is a beautiful way to spend an afternoon. The ride is a 50 minute meander through fields of wildflowers, cows and other livestock. The enthusiastic conductors and guides provide a Rich history of the area as you ride in the beautiful vintage electric train car. Cookies and lemonade are served as you sit in lovely velvet upholstered lounge chairs and loveseats. Or sit in the rear dining area of the car. It's slice of California history not to be missed. A lovely gift shop is also on site along with a little Museum. We bought pink and white conductor hats for the special girls in our lives. Great outing for a romantic date or an adventure with your kids.
  • Good place to visit with kids. Mine are older but they still liked it. Just bummed out we only got to ride the train since they put the trolley away early the day we went...it being a windy day didn't help either! Definitely will be back though...
  • Was out on a solo adventure, snapping pictures on a sunny Saturday. I've heard of this place but never stopped in until today. Am so glad I did, was like stepping back into the early 30's-40's, rich in history of the railroad. The narrator did a fantastic job! Enjoyed the two different electric cars that I rode in. The old train's are amazing to see. For a small donation of $10.00 a person. Well worth it. Cannot wait to return.
  • Great place to take the family or go walk around by yourself. Had no idea how many trains they actually had there so much history. And of course the best part the train ride you get to take. It is very affordable, and the staff of workers are very friendly and knowledge about the trains. I went there with my family that came to visit, and we all enjoyed it. Kid friendly. Want to get out for a few hours and see something new this is the place.
  • This is a great family day out! The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The warehouse they have is huge and there is a real cross section of locomotive history you can browse, imported from as far a field as Liverpool in the UK and Melborn in Australia. There are two types of ride, one long (~1hr) and one short (~15mins). We managed to get on both (having been there twice now). The museum they have has good demonstrations and they have a shop containing enough brio for six children to be entertained (without crossing tracks!). The shop also serves as a library of sorts. We found ourselves short of time last time - they ran a streetcar, just for us, around their yard. It was a real privilege! I can highly recommend this place as a family day out.
