Museum Offers Low-Cost ‘Sample’ Train Trip for Local Families, General Public

On Saturday, Sep. 5, the South Coast Railroad Museum will host a special “Amtrak Sampler” train trip along the South Coast.

The short morning round trip rail adventure is designed especially for families with young children or anyone interested in getting an inexpensive taste of train travel aboard modern Amtrak equipment.

Museum staff and volunteers will escort the group.

Passengers will be able to board the train in either Goleta or Santa Barbara and may select between two destinations: Carpinteria or Ventura.

The trip aboard Pacific Surfliner trains will leave from the Goleta Amtrak station at 9:13 a.m. and from Santa Barbara Amtrak at 9:27 a.m. 

All trains will return to Santa Barbara by 11:40 a.m. and Goleta by 11:53 a.m.

The cost for the Carpinteria round trip is only $13.50 ($10.50 for ages 2-17). The Ventura trip is just $17.95 ($14.95 for ages 2-17).

Advance purchase is required. Seating is limited. Tickets may be purchased through the museum’s online store, where additional information can also be found.

Interested parties can also call the museum at 805.964.3540.

— Gary B. Coombs is the director of the South Coast Railroad Museum.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
