By riding the California Western Railroad, you will bear witness to some of the best natural scenery the state has to offer, such as the whimsical redwood forests, the sun-drenched Pacific coastline, and the beautiful Sierra Nevada Range. Take a short-line railroad excursion through the rugged coastal mountain range of northern California, ride in the cab and tender of a restored steam engine through stands of fabled redwood forestland, and keep a sharp eye out from a high-rail vehicle running ahead of diesel trains, classic Skunk railcars, and a steam-powered Skunk passenger train. This is one thrilling run down railbeds where rail history was made, and where it still lives on thanks to the careful and faithful restoration and maintenance efforts on behalf of the California Western.
