Get ready for another unforgettable Valentine’s on the Niles Canyon Railway Romance on the Rails Wine Tasting Trains. On Saturday, February 15, there will be two trains, one leaving the Sunol station at 12:00 noon and another leaving at 3:00 p.m.

Bring your loved one and share a bit of romance, history, fine wine and delicious food as you experience the magic of a bygone era traveling for two hours through scenic Niles Canyon on a vintage train in the new Southern Pacific parlor-lounge car #2979, newly restored to its elegant 1940s appearance. It is the winner of an Art Deco Society of California preservation award. It features plush lounge seating and a semi-circular mahogany bar framed by etched glass and mirrors. The car is climate-controlled for your comfort, and attendants will be on board to assist in any way you require during your trip. An open-air car is also included for your viewing enjoyment. Note that the lounge car is not wheelchair accessible due to the narrow passages of this vintage rail car.

Fine premium wines from Livermore Valley wineries have been hand-selected by Wine Educator Steve Ferree. The wineries represented on the Romance on the Rails are:

Steve, the WineProGuy, will be on board to provide you with information about the wines and the cheeses that are being paired. In addition hors d’oeuvre will be served.

The Romance on the Rails Wine Tasting Train is sponsored by the Pacific Locomotive Association and the Golden Gate Railroad Museum and proceeds of the event support their railroad historic preservation programs. All seats are reserved and tickets are $75 and are available at their ticketing site.
