1. 5 days after our train ride May 10, our country will be celebrating 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad to Sacramento, a historical event that enlarged, invigorated our country.

2. This September and October, our Niles Canyon Railway will be joining the rest of the state and country in celebrating the completion of the transcontinental railroad from Niles (and the Bay Area) to Sacramento (and across the country).

3. I’m also celebrating my 76th birthday that day.

So I hope you can join me for all the celebration on Sunday, May 5!

• Sunday, May 5, afternoon: We will meet at the Sunol depot (photo below) at 2 PM and ride on Niles Canyon Railway. Plan to arrive in Sunol right at about 2 PM, buy your own ticket at the depot, then meet me and the group in the same place as our photo below, so we can get together and plan about boarding the train. If for some reason you cannot find us or reach me by phone, just get in line to board the train for the 2:30 ride to Niles, and then call me (925-360-2734) so we can find you! Note: When we reach Niles, please stay on the train so we can return to Sunol about 3:50, and have a potluck picnic. BYO food and non-alcoholic drinks, perhaps in an ice chest, and maybe also food to share. Store your picnic food and ice chests in your trunk in the Sunol depot parking lot while riding the train. Our group will get “seniors” fares (saving each person $5.00) when you say you are with Bob Lingo’s group. Fares: $15 adults, $10 children 3-12. Carpooling will be available, but only if you let me know ahead of the day of the event. 

Depot location for your GPS: 6 Kilkare Rd, Sunol, CA 94586
