Central Coast Flyer hits the tracks
The South Coast Railroad Museum will celebrate the inaugural run of the “Central Coast Flyer” at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 30, at the Santa Barbara Amtrak station. Two vintage railcars will take passengers for a roundtrip adventure along the Pacific Coast to San Luis Obispo.
Points of interest along the route include the breathtaking Gaviota Coast, the legendary surfing beaches of the Hollister and Bixby ranches, Point Conception, the massive launch sites of Vandenberg AFB, the vineyards of the Edna Valley, state and county beach parks, and more.
The June 30 Central Coast Flyer trip is open to the general public. Advance reservations are required. Seats cost $69, which includes light snacks, soft drinks, and coffee. Museum guides will travel aboard all Central Coast Flyer trips to answer passenger questions and provide light, informative commentary about the route and its features.
On the June 30 trip, Overland Trail will be accompanied by the historic Colonial Crafts, which served on the Pennsylvania Railroad and features three bedrooms, a buffet, drawing room, and lounge.
Discounted fares are available by booking seats through the museum’s online store at goo.gl/RQ2XA.
Additional Central Coast Flyer day-trips are now being organized by the museum, including July 21 and Aug. 18.
To make reservations or for more information, call 680-0397.
