Join Us For An Eerie Evening!
California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to present lantern-lit “Tales of the Roundhouse” tours and train rides on two special evenings only – Friday, September 24 and Saturday, September 25, 2021, with tours at 6:30 and 7 p.m. Led by engaging and entertaining guides, “Tales of the Roundhouse” participants will hear the real life and death tales of past railroad workers and passengers who lost their lives in ghastly accidents, gruesome train wrecks and sometimes by cold-blooded murder.
First introduced in 2016, “Tales of the Roundhouse” guests will have the special opportunity to tour the historic park after dark while listening to intriguing, railroad-related ghost stories. Evening visitors will also enjoy going behind-the-scenes with special access to the historic Roundhouse and Blacksmith Shop. Plus, guests will experience a nighttime steam train ride behind a historic steam locomotive while learning about railroad superstition and lore.
Due to the nature of the content, this event is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
