Railroad museum invites guests to celebrate Dad on Father’s Day weekend

Railroad museum invites guests to celebrate Dad on Father’s Day weekend

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum & Foundation invites guests to celebrate dad on Father’s Day weekend with memorable steam train ride and even first-class service aboard an air-conditioned vintage lounge car on June 18 & 19, 2016. All weekend long, guests can enjoy excursion train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad pulled by the recently restored and popular vintage steam locomotive Granite Rock 10.

Steam train ride guests delight in the sights, smells and sounds of an authentic, historic locomotive as it rolls along the levees of the Sacramento River for a six-mile, 45-minute roundtrip excursion. Appealing to all ages, the experience offers guests the chance to enjoy train travel from an earlier era. The train features a combination of vintage closed coaches with comfortable seats or VIP train ride experiences onboard the Museum’s beautifully restored first class El Dorado lounge car.

CITRUS! SOME FOR YOU, SOME TO SHARE.

It is citrus season, and I am so excited because my little one year old Meyer lemon tree has four lemons on it!  They will be ready to pick soon.  Our 40-year old orange tree is full and ready to harvest.
