About Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad
Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad's track may only be four miles long, but their trains cover decades in that distance. Here, a duo of antique steam engines—one built in 1913, the other in 1928—tow travelers through the piney wilderness of Sierra National Forest. Along the way, guides provide a glimpse of how America's wilderness looked to the railroad companies and loggers as they worked their way westward and shipped raw materials back east. The lesson also incorporates a bit of biology, as tour-leaders will often deviate from historical discussion to talk about local wildlife or how lumberjacks evolved their ax hands. On certain evenings, the conductors extend the track tour from one-hour to three. Guests begin the evening with a barbecue dinner, then ride the train to a campfire for a sing-along. They then get back on the locomotive for an evening trip back to the modern era.

The Moonlight Dinner Ride was a lot of fun. The meal was good, with entertainment before and during, and we enjoyed the short ride through the forest. The real treat was the campfire sing along—our three generations had a great time listening to and singing along with the band. I would recommend this to any age.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 43rd anniversary on the Moonlight Special @ Sugar Pine Railroad. The food, train ride, campfire and entertainment were fantastic. We will definitely do it again and recommend the experience to friends and guests at our Airbnb.

Moonlight special is the best! Great dinner service and the band is amazing. My toddlers’ first train ride and she loves it. My son said it’s the best birthday ever. The band called all the birthday celebrant and anniversaries and they get to go upfront and everybody sang happy birthday at the campfire. It was magical.

Fun trip! Easy to book on-line, find the location, park and check in for the trip. All seating is outdoors so it’s important to prepare for the elements. Plenty of seating available with ample safe space between parties. Tour was great, riding the train was fun, conductor commentary was entertaining and informative. School group on board really liked it!
