Railbus operation during the summer months begins in April and ends on the 28th of October. (Operation is subject to weather conditions.)
Please arrive fifteen minutes before your departure time to check in, otherwise your reservations may be given to passengers on the standby list.
There is no charge to ride. However, the railbus can only operate with the financial support of the passengers. Please consider a donation when you reserve your trip.
Reservations may be made by calling the Museum during normal business hours on 530-470-0902. Because of the volume of calls, we can no longer accept reservation requests left on the office recorder.
Passengers are ticketed on a first come, first served basis. Sign-up sheets are available at the NCNGRR Museum and in the lobby of the Northern Queen Inn.
