Celebrate Fathers Day By Making Memories
Train Tracks

The local Sierra DinnerTrain is gearing up for the Father’s Day weekend with adventures designed for memory making.

Planned are special murder mystery and express train trips.

Put Dad’s detective skills to the test, aboard the Murder Mystery DinnerTrain. Meet a cast of quirky characters who draw you into the drama as they squabble, scheme, and ultimately meet their demise. Be entertained the old fashioned way – with live theater and rail travel. This trip is set for Saturday, June 18 at 6 p.m.

Bring the whole family to celebrate Dad on the High Noon Express. Named aptly for the movie filmed on the railroad, this down­home adventure rolls through ag country on the newly remodeled trains. Trips are set for both Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19, departing each day at noon.

Boarding Location for the train trips is at 330 S. Sierra Ave., Oakdale.

Tickets can be purchased in advance on Sierra DinnerTrain’s website:­day­trains/.
