The River Fox Train is dedicated to preserving a piece of Northern California history, and providing a wide variety of unique things to do for our community.

The rail line spans 14 miles from West Sacramento to Woodland, and at a leisurely 10 to 15 miles per hour, there's plenty of time for a cozy dinner, social wine or beer tasting event, or even an entertaining show.

• Up to five dogs are allowed on the Beer Train, Old Vine Express, Picnic Express and River Fox Train Excursion. Dogs are only allowed in the open air cars.
