Relive the age of great trains behind a 1921 steam locomotive as it winds through historic Niles Canyon from Sunol to Niles and back on a 90-minute journey. The Golden Gate Railroad Museum’s restored steam locomotive Southern Pacific 2472 will be accompanied by vintage equipment, re-creating a historic train – and creating memories for tomorrow.
