Built as a logging railroad, the Skunk line began in 1885 as a logical vehicle for moving massive redwood logs to Mendocino Coast sawmills from the rugged back country. Now you can experience the best of California mountain railroading on vintage coaches and open air cars. Feel the excitement on these historic diesel powered and steam engine cars.
You will travel from the Skunk Train depot in Fort Bragg to the Northspur station. Your trip will begin by crossing California State Highway 1 and then running along Pudding Creek. The train cuts through the beautiful redwoods along the entire route. You will pass over bridges and trestles with water running under them and through a 1,100 foot tunnel. You will even see a 1,000 year old redwood! The Noyo River provides a perfect backdrop to this exciting trip.
Trains carry a complete line of snacks, including hot dogs, sandwiches, candy, soda pop, water, coffee, hot cocoa, beer, and everyone's favorite, popcorn!
