RENT A CABOOSE
For reservations, call the Station Agent at (510) 996-8420
Enjoy exclusive use of the caboose by you and your private party guests.
Climb up into the cupola for a bird's-eye view of the train as it as it rolls through
Niles Canyon, along the scenic route of North America's First Transcontinental Railroad.
The Santa Fe caboose provides a special ride for groups of up to 20 or 24
people (depending on whether they are adult-sized or child-sized). Two small serving
tables are available for your refreshments. There are windows on the main floor, but
the best view of the train is from the seats high up in the cupola.
The reservation fee is $75, regardless of the number of riders,
plus a fare of $10 per adult, $8 per Senior, and $5 per child. The caboose
is very popular, so be sure to reserve early. Call (510) 996-8420
PARTY PACK !
A grab bag full of railroad theme party favors
just right for young caboose-ridin' revelers.
There's train-loads of fun in every bag!
