Niles Canyon Railway  
Since Keith has always been a fan of a train ride, we spent the day on Sunday to ride on the historic Niles Canyon Railway. We took the last train at 3:00 PM from Sunol to Niles and back. There were two locomotives pulling and pulling the cars full of kids, parents and railway enthusiasts. Other than passenger cars they also have open top cars and cars with shades. We boarded the last one on our way to Niles and tried one of the passenger cars on our way back to Sunol. We loved the ride, the canyon was so beautiful.

No body else was waiting at the station there other than a family of another group of passengers

We overheard a lady said that she had just got herself a glass of wine. Apparently the train had a working bar that  served snacks, drinks and alcoholic beverages.
