Step back to the mid 1990s to enjoy the sight of beautifully painted diesels shining in the brilliant sun as they operate through the scenic landscapes of the California Northern. You'll see sugar beets delivered to a sugar plant and watch GP15 locomotives grinding up Creston Hill with a pipe train. You'll also talk to and ride with one of the railroad's engineers and ride in the cab of a venerable SD9 on the Willits Turn.
Exploring the West Valley Sub, you'll chase beet trains along the route. Then you'll visit the Napa Sub, Napa Junction, and the line to Vallejo. West of Napa Junction, you'll follow the Petaluma Turn over drawbridges and past vineyards, then catch the Hopland Turn and track it north to its interchange with the Willits Turn. While riding aboard the train, you will experience an exciting trip through scenic Cloverdale Canyon along the Russian River. Your tour concludes with a thrilling ride across Ridge Summit aboard the Willits Turn. Heavy loads of lumber from the north are hauled over this steep mountain grade and down the treacherous slope to Ukiah. The California Northern Railroad delivers great regional railroading at its very finest!
