    I had asked to carpool earlier but I'm now not able to go. Wish things were different and I could make it. Hope you all have a great time.

    Sounds fun! Wish I could make it. Still healing.

    Also, there's a fee for parking in the lot. It used to be $8 per vehicle, but best to check for what's current. Likely, it's still $8.

    PI took a group of 5th graders there one year. The train ride is interesting, informative and educational.

    Oh, this looks so fun! Trains are great and there will be so many fun photo ops.

    Just an FYI if you try to purchase your ticket online and have a PO Box for your address, it won't go through. You will need to call and purchase over the phone.

    Going over the eticket, it says to get there 45 minutes before the train leaves for check in. plus the drive up there, another 45 minutes, (with NO traffic) add it all together and your leaving San Jose area @ 9:30am. I'm ok with that, I;m up @ 6am just saying :-) Also... Still offering to drive a few people up there. let me know. [masked], or email, [masked]

    I would love to carpool with someone. I'm in down town Lost Gatos that morning so hoping to catch a ride near by.

    • Thomas M.

      Hello Katie, I live in Santa Clara, only 20 minutes from Los Gatos. Let's ride share. My number is[masked]-3101. Plus to Sally I think it said on the eticket that parking was $8 or $10 per car. Maybe we can all meet in felton and car pull from there :-) my car have room for two more people plus gear. Need a ride call me.

    Just bought my ticket Aug. 31,[masked]:00am, It might be warm in the sun, but through the Redwoods it might get a bit chilly so bring something warm, layers. I was up @ The Henry Cowell State Park next door to the Railroad over the 4th of July week. got some great shots of the Redwoods. I'll post a couple in the photo page.

    August 20, 2013

    • Sally C.

      No promo code. Not enough people committed in time so it's $26.
