The special passenger train powered by Western Pacific #918 will depart Sunol depot at 9:30am for Niles. On the return trip from Niles the passenger train will be greeted by a freight train powered by Clover Valley Lumber Company #4, the only Baldwin logging mallet operating on the West Coast.

Both trains will perform a number of run-bys deep in the beautiful Niles Canyon. The passenger train should return to Sunol around 1:00pm.
