A Note To Our Customers: Because Amtrak has increased service fees for private rail car owners, you will see varied fares for our upcoming day-trips. This explains the different fares we have posted. Some fares were set prior to the Amtrak rate increase and others were set after the notice of the rate increase was received. Unfortunately this increase is part of doing business with Amtrak and is beyond our control. Thank you for your understanding.
The South Coast Railroad Museum offers affordable day-trips for the general public aboard vintage railcars, from the Santa Barbara area along the Pacific Coast to San Luis Obispo. A variety of travel dates and railcars are available.

Sights and Points-Of-Interest during the trip 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, a variety of wildlife and botanical wonders, and a lot more.
