Little guys will thrill to the REAL train and the engine ride. You can't beat steam for historic visuals! Don't miss the train music CDs in the gift shop, helps you recall the train.

Our boys of 4 & 7 love a rail road trip, and a visit up the mountain on a steam train was always going to be a winner! Its a trip back in time to learn the history of Yosemite and logging, the guides are knowledgeable and friendly. There a little café and a great gift shop. I recommend sitting... More

On your way to Yosemite on Highway 49 make a stop along the way at the Sugar Pine Railroad in the town of Fish Camp. It is a great way to get a little history of California and it's logging industry in the early years in California. The commentary along a small portion of the train route goes into detail... More

We just missed the steam engine trip however they do have an alternative engine that takes you on the same route. The driver was clever and definitely enjoys his job! This was a pleasant trip and we were able to bring our small dog with us even though not "in the rules", more than one employee encouraged us to take... More

I always enjoy steam engines (we never miss a tourist narrow-gauge railroad) and this was no exception. Staff was friendly, the shops were better than expected, and while clearly catering to kids it was an enjoyable hour for us adults as well. The scenery will not wow you like Yosemite valley or sequoia groves, but it is very pretty pine... More

Make sure you call in here if you're in the area - fascinating history and the guys will show you all around the loco and facility (I got up on the footplate and had a good chat to the driver!). We visited in late April, so it wasn't too busy - I imagine it gets hectic in summer! Overall, really... More

A pleasant one hour train ride through old lumber woods. Nicely narrated with lots of info about the old days of lumber cutting, moving and more. Sit inside covered cars --no windows, or totally outside-bring a hat.

We had a nice outdoor evening eating a BBQ dinner while listening to the local bluegrass group before boarding the train. Bring a blanket! Great for families. Gold panning was also a hit.
