With Gold Rush Days just around the corner, be sure to plan to take a ride aboard the California State Railroad Museum's popular excursion railroad -- the Sacramento Southern Railroad during the annual heritage festival! Guests will delight in the sights, smells and sounds of an authentic, working locomotive as it rolls along the levees of the Sacramento River. Appealing to all ages, the experience offers guests with the chance to enjoy train travel from an earlier era. Those aboard are treated to a six-mile, 40-minute round trip excursion along the levees of the Sacramento River. The train features a combination of vintage closed coaches with comfortable seats, and open-air "gondolas" with bench style seating. Same-day general admission excursion train ride tickets are available in-person at the Sacramento Southern Railroad ticket office located on Front Street between "J" and "K" Streets in Old Sacramento on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10:30 a.m. all three days of the extended Labor Day weekend. Even during the Gold Rush Days celebration, advance tickets to ride the first-class (and air-conditioned!) El Dorado are available online at www.californiastaterailroadmuseum.org and groups interested in reserving the El Dorado for a regularly scheduled ride should call 916-322-7112.
