Toast of the Canyon
Special Saturdays - June 28, July 26, Aug 30, & Sept 27, 2014
Enjoy wine and appetizers as you travel on a 45-minute trip south of the Carson City Depot into the Carson River Canyon. Glimpse a part of the route not seen every day. The track winds past scenic views of the river and the canyon walls. Bring your cameras, as there will be opportunities to photograph the "Iron Horse" as it steams by the passenger cars to re-attach to the train to pull it back up out of the canyon. Listen as the engineer blows the whistle and the echoes bounce off the canyon walls. The Saturday Canyon Trains follow the all day, roundtrip steam train rides from Carson City to Virginia City. At the end of that run, the same train continues south of the Carson City depot into the canyon. More Info and Route Map >>
