Railroad Museum celebrates veterans

To honor their service and celebrate the patriotic holiday, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to offer veterans and active military personnel complimentary excursion train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad plus complimentary museum admission on Monday, Nov. 11.

With patriotic music playing aboard the trains, veterans and active military personnel are encouraged to wear their uniforms with pride while enjoying a special excursion train ride available at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. this one-day-only on a first-come, first-served basis.
