What it's like to ride Sac RT train for the first time

What it's like to ride Sac RT train for the first time


SACRAMENTO - Because of the impact of the FIX 50 project, there is expected to be thousands of first-time riders on Sacramento's light-rail system. But first-timers may have some questions about riding the trains.

Whether you'll be using the green, gold, or blue line, you'll want to get your boarding pass, and make sure you have it on you at all times. Riding the train can be easy and stress-free, and a better alternative to waiting in gridlock.

First-time rider Kachet Jackson-Henderson will be choosing the train, instead of the traffic nightmare.

"I don't really know what to expect," she says. "I've taken public transit in San Francisco, and I feel like if I can do that I can do Sacramento RT."

Railroad Museum Offers Monthly “Diesel Days” Beginning this Weekend!

Railroad Museum Offers Monthly “Diesel Days” Beginning this Weekend!

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to offer special “Diesel Days” one weekend each month – April through September -- by operating two visually-exciting and gracefully-styled diesel locomotives as part of the popular weekend excursion train rides on the Museum’s Sacramento Southern Railroad.  These brightly painted diesels -- Western Pacific No. 913 and Southern Pacific “Daylight” No. 6051 -- will pull the excursion trains both Saturday and Sunday on the following weekends:  April 19-20, May 17-18, June 14-15 (Father’s Day Weekend), July 19-20, August 23-24 and September 20-21, 2014.  These eye-catching and classic streamlined locomotives are representative of the so-called “First Generation” of diesel-electric locomotives which replaced steam engines all across America during the 1940s and 1950s.
