The holiday wouldn’t be the same for me without a Santa sighting. If you feel the same way, “Get Outta Town” this weekend to Portola, in Plumas County, for the Western Pacific Railroad Museum’s Santa Train.
While you’re there, visit the museum’s 35 locomotives and 80 train cars. The museum encourages train lovers to sit in the seats and climb on the cabooses, including the “Silver Plate,” the only preserved Diner from the world famous Streamliner, California Zephyr.
What: 2010 Santa Trains
When: Sat., Dec. 4 and Sat., Dec 11 – 5 to 8 p.m.
Where: Western Pacific Railroad Museum, 700 Western Pacific Way, Portola
Cost: $5 per carload, with unlimited rides and refreshments
