Private Railcar Excursion SB<=>SLO
Saturday, October 4, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our first Private Railcar Trip on the Central Coast!
We rode the immaculately restored Overland Trail as we enjoyed the vistas along the Central Coast and relaxed in the luxurious lounge while being served complimentary coffee and soda. Three versions of the trip were available, two of which included a leg on Amtrak and one included both legs on the Overland Trail from Santa Barbara and back.
This was a joint event with the Friends of the Santa Maria Valley Railroad.
Here's a pamphlet guide (courtesy of the Friends of the SMVRR) indicating highlights along the coastline between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara. You see all of these (and more!) on this excursion!
Thanks to Gary See and Diane Marchetti for the photos.
