In May 2014 we are introducing new trips to the Sierra (such as beer tasting trips & zombie trains!), while also making changes to existing trips. We will also make improvements to our train set and station. We apologize in advance for any resulting confusion regarding trip information between old & new trip details during this time of transition.
The Sierra Railroad was formed in 1897 to connect the Central Valley to the Gold County. As the third oldest railroad in North America, the Sierra continues to haul freight, carry passengers, make Hollywood movies, and play an important role in California.
The Sierra Railroad Dinner Train, launched in 1999, provides visitors an opportunity to travel on the historic Sierra Railroad while enjoying a delicious meal, beautiful countryside, and a wide range of entertainment. The Dinner Train offers romantic dinners, fun murder mysteries, lunches, sunday brunches, wild west shows, wine tasting, and much more. Our train station in Oakdale is conveniently located 1+ hour from the San Francisco Bay Area or Sacramento, on the way toward Yosemite National Park.
