A World of Adventure

In Our Own Backyard

The Sacramento RiverTrain is a local, family-owned business dedicated to preserving a piece of Northern California history, and providing a wide variety of unique things to do for our community. Our 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. We hope you’ll find something new to try in an unexpected place.

༛ Favorite Experiences ༛

Old Vine Express

This farm-to-glass event rolls along old River Road offering tastings of Northern California wines.  Each trip features a live band and a selection of 15 wines to choose from.  After visiting your assigned seat where you will find your souvenir tasting glass, the event works much like a winery tasting room.

RiverTrain Excursion

The RiverTrain Excursion showcases Gold Rush history.  Halfway through the train ride we will stop at our river-side park and de-board so guests can do their own gem mining! This family-friendly ride is suitable for all ages so bring the whole family and spend the day relaxing on the rails! 

Beer Train

The Sacramento Beer Train is a popular favorite event on the local craft beer scene. Each trip features a live band and beer selections from Northern California breweries!  This fun, casual event starts with finding your assigned seat where your instructions to the event will be waiting.

Great Train Robbery

Take a ride on the wild side, and live out your own old Western showdown aboard the Sacramento RiverTrain’s Great Train Robbery. Keep a weathered eye on the horizon for greedy outlaws! But don’t fret, our on-board Marshal will keep everyone safe!

This 2.5-hour experience is fun for kids and adults alike, and you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back in time as you’re entertained with a live Wild West show. Relax in Elkhorn Park and enjoy a barbecue buffet lunch. You don’t need to go far to find an amazing adventure!
