Sierra Railroad Train & Raft Tour from Oakdale - Silver Service

Sierra Railroad Tours from Oakdale

Sierra Railroad Tours from Oakdale

In the summertime, ride the Sierra Railroad Train for a two-hour excursion, then raft the Stanislaus River back to your car! Easy guide-assisted float trip for ages 5 to 75. Children are welcome in Silver Service. Minimum age is 5 for this tour.

Enjoy the rich history of the third oldest short line railroad in North America as you travel through 32 miles of unspoiled countryside, rolling hills, orchards and farmland. You will take pleasure in the sites of wildlife like egrets and blue herons perched in the near-by streams and ponds, coyotes on the prowl, rabbits nestling near the track and red-tail hawks hovering in the skyline.

The Sierra Railroad is commonly known as The Movie Railroad. With its superb scenery, this railroad is singled out by movie producers from around the world as a preferred location for filming. The Sierra Railroad has been featured in over 300 motion pictures, television programs and commercials.

The train is comprised of elegantly refurbished cars with five different in-laid woods in art deco patterns adorned with delicate sconces and a lounge car that includes a full-bar. The historic Sierra #42, a 50-year old Baldwin Diesel engine, pulls the dinner train.
