SUNOL — Steam is back! The Pacific Locomotive Association invites you to ride through Niles Canyon behind diesel and steam-powered engines on select weekends. The Clover Valley Lumber Co. #4 steam locomotive is gracing the tracks again after a nearly two-year hiatus, following an extensive refurbishment.

Bring the whole family to take a ride on the Niles Canyon Railway in Sunol, California. Photo courtesy Niles Canyon Railway.

You’re also invited to experience the newly restored M200 Railbus. This 30-seat self-propelled railcar departs from Sunol Station and provides a new way to view the Canyon. Formerly operated by California Western Railroad, these gas-powered transports earned the nickname “Skunks” due to the distinctive smell of their gasoline motors. Trips aboard the M200 are sure to be popular and seating is limited, so book your tickets well in advance.
