October Special Steam & Halloween Family Diesel Trains

Ride through the canyon on a beautiful fall weekend day, afternoon or evening! And come celebrate Halloween with us for the last weekend!

After a successful first set of rides in September which were the first since the COVID-19 pandemic and its shelter-in-place orders went into effect, the Niles Canyon Railway is pleased to be able to offer a second set of planned special train rides in the month of October. We are thrilled to be able to welcome you back for these two weekends of special steam trips behind Columbia River Belt Line Railway #7, the Skookum, and a third weekend behind the museum’s historic diesel locomotives where families are welcome to join us in family friendly costumes if they wish. Costumes are NOT required to enjoy the ride, however.

Please read over our COVID-19 Health and Safety policy before booking your tickets and before you arrive on our property.

Trains depart on time, so please plan to arrive 30-45 minutes before the scheduled departure time to allow for parking and boarding. Our boarding areas will be setup to allow for appropriate social distancing while you wait and throughout the boarding process.

Our trains will consist of mostly open cars so please dress accordingly for riding in these cars especially for the 4PM and 7PM trains as it can get a little chilly in Niles Canyon in the evenings depending on the weather. The 7PM trains will also return after dark so please be aware of this.

Departures are only from our Sunol Depot.
At this time, there will be no rides or activity at our Niles Station.

Due to county and state restrictions our snack bar will be closed and please do not bring food or drinks on board the train.

We’re doing our part to keep you safe, but we can’t do it alone. The success of our reopening plan requires the cooperation of all our guests. Guests of the Niles Canyon Railway will be required to follow all of our policies while on our property and on our trains. We ask that you please take the time to review the procedures and policies. We expect that these will be temporary, and we intend to modify them in phases as health conditions and government leaders permit.

Furthermore, in accordance with our current policies, our Guests can help us ensure the health and safety of all by agreeing to the following:
– Guests who have recently been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19 (including a fever, cough, or shortness of breath) will be asked to not visit.
– Guests who have underlying health conditions or are otherwise concerned about contracting COVID-19 acknowledge their option to not visit the NCRY.

**TICKETS ARE ONLY GOOD FOR THE DATE AND TIME PURCHASED. TICKET REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED. MAKE SURE VERIFY THE DATE AND TIME BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR TICKETS.**

The Niles Canyon Railway reserves the right to substitute motive power for the train without prior notice.
