Holiday Train of Lights

November 19 @ 4:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$35 – $65

Take the whole family on an enchanting holiday excursion!

Enjoy a 1.5 hour-long round trip through Niles Canyon filled with refreshments, music, and cheer aboard our antique coaches and open cars that feature holiday lights and decorations inside and out.

The Train of Lights offers a rare opportunity to experience a train ride through Niles Canyon at night. With one departure from Niles at dusk and a second departure from Sunol after dark, you can choose your favorite time to ride.

The Train of Lights has been an annual tradition for many Bay Area families for more than a decade. Make it yours too!

There are two rides every night the trains operate:
– 4:30 – 6:00 pm, starting in Niles.
– 7:30 – 9:00 pm, starting in Sunol.

See the Niles Canyon Railway website for exact boarding locations.

Operating dates:
– November 18, 19, 25, 26, 29
– December 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29.

The Niles Canyon Railway is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit railroad museum and the Train of Lights is their big fundraiser for the operation and restoration of our engines, cars, and expansion towards Pleasanton.
