Turn back time and have some fun on this old steam train. The 90 minute round trip is well worth the money. The volunteers have meticulously maintained this 100 year old steam engine. Great for the whole family.

We loved this attraction. The conductor gives you a play by play as to the history of the train and the sights. You get a behind the scene view of the orchards and wineries. The sound of the engine is so cool. Lot's of fun.
