South Coast Raiload Museum to Offer Free Rail Rides for Moms on Mother’s Day

In honor of Mother’s Day, all moms and grandmothers visiting the South Coast Railroad Museum Sunday, May 8, 2016, will receive a free ride on the Goleta Short Line, the museum’s miniature train, compliments of the museum between the hours of 1-4 p.m.

The complimentary tickets for mothers will be available during the event. Ride tickets for family members and the general public will also be available during the event for $1.50 each.

The train ride will operate continuously during event hours. The one-half mile ride around the museum grounds takes about nine minutes.

There is a 34-inch minimum-height requirement for all riders.

All trains will be pulled by the museum’s yard locomotives, which are authentic ⅛-size reproductions of Southern Pacific Railroad diesel switch-engines.

The South Coast Railroad Museum is located at the historic Goleta Depot, 300 N Los Carneros Road.

Gary 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!
