A few times a year Niles Railway offers a Wine Train. We traveled from Sunol to Niles and back again. Tasted excellent wines, learned about wines, admired beautiful scenery and met some wonderful volunteers! Very relaxing! Will definitely do this one again!!

The train car was covered but open. Nice ride during the summer time especially when it is sunny. I took the ride from Sunol going to Fremont. In Fremont you can get off and go to boutique shops, antique shops.
