During the two-hour Christmas Train experience, passengers board the Yule-tide locomotive and watch as the story of Morgan & The Magical Christmas Train plays out before their eyes. Costumed characters including Santa, his elves, and a friendly teddy bear interact with kids throughout the trip, which also includes music, cocoa, and cookies. Passengers are encouraged to get comfy by wearing their pajamas. Customers will either be seated in movable chairs with tables or coach-type passenger seating, but can receive a gold ticket upgrade for an additional $10 to be seated at booths with tables. Limited food and drink is also available for an additional fee.<p>

Sacramento RiverTrain

Completed in 1911, the Woodland Branch is a 16-mile stretch of railway that connects West Sacramento with Woodland, California. At the branch's peak, passenger trains were running eight times a day, nine times on leap-days, but it all came to an end in 1940 with the start of World War II. The tracks were still used for freight, but it would be more than 60 years before passengers began using the railway again with any frequency. When the scenic stretch of rail was absorbed by the Sierra Railroad Company in 2003, it wasn't long before it took the name Sacramento RiverTrain and began running luxury coaches complete with rattan furniture, wood paneling, and state-of-the-art sound systems. Today, passengers board these trains to savor Sunday brunch, murder-mystery dinners, and other events while train tracks softly clack in the background.

This was very good experience. My kid loved the train ride... Story time, Winn. Songs, pumpkin picking, corn maze, tractor ride. I would go there next time as well.
