Sierra Railroad’s Golden Sunset Dinner Train returns to the Mother Lode this weekend for two special train excursions.
Friday evening, August 2, a murder mystery dinner train will depart from The Junction shopping center, behind McDonald’s restaurant, at 6 p.m.
Patrick Karnahan, with the Sierra Railroad, says the three-and-a-half-hour roundtrip from Sonora to Chinese will feature a five-course gourmet meal along with the entertaining murder mystery as the plot unravels during the journey.
Sunday, August 4, a three-course luncheon will be served on-board the train. That trip also leaves Sonora from The Junction and runs to Chinese and back.
There will be no dinner train service out of the Sierra Railroad’s Oakdale depot during the weekend, and no Sonora trains are planned for Saturday, August 3, Karnahan says.
Reservations are required for both trains. Contact the Golden Sunset Dinner Train office at 848-2100 for ticket information.
