Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad Tips (1)

The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad

As we traveled along Highway 41 to the Tenaya Lodge, we passed Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad. It was leaving the station, on its way to a scenic trip through the Sierra National Forest. We were hoping to be on that train!

I had picked up a brochure earlier and noticed THE MOONLIGHT SPECIAL, which is only offered on Saturday and Wednesday evenings with a 6:30 pm departure. This sounded like a real treat, but we didn't arrive early enough to board on time.

The cost for this particular trip would have been $45 for adults and $22.50 for children 3-12, which includes a steak/bbq dinner and a melodrama that evening.

You also have an opportunity to try two other options:

The Jenny Railcar--This is a Model A railcar once used for logging and track repair crews. Tickets for a 30 minute ride are $13 for adults; $6.50 for kids 3-12

The Logger Steam Train--Ride in a authentic steam powered Shay locomotive over the same tracks logging trains once used. Tickets for a one hour narrated journey are $17 for adults' $8.50 for kids 3-12.
