We invite you and your family to travel with us by private charter train from the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento region, Portola/Feather River Canyon and Reno/Carson City areas to Elko, Nevada to enjoy the 34th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.

Why fight the icy and snowy roads in the Feather River Canyon and over Donner Pass and across the Nevada desert when you could ride in comfort onboard our Cowboy Express made up of private rail cars dating from the late 1940’s and early 1950’s during America’s classic streamline era for passenger trains. Each passenger car has been refurbisht to it’s original condition. Step back in time and enjoy our classic train which includes coaches, lounges, domes and Pullman cars for your exciting train riding experience.

We are also selling one day tickets from the Bay  & Sacramento Areas up the Feather River Canyon to Portola.  This oneway ticket includes charter motorcoach transportation from Portola to Reno where folks can then return to the Sacramento and  Bay Areas by Amtrak or airline.   Also this same charter motorcoach will transport any passengers from Reno to Portola who would like to board this train for the journey to Elko, Nevada.
