Romantic “Sweetheart Special” Museum Rail Trip Renewed for Feb. 6
The South Coast Railroad Museum opens its 2016 “Santa Barbara Rail Adventures” season with the return of its ever-popular “Sweetheart Special” rail excursion on Saturday, Feb. 6. For this special Valentines-themed getaway, the museum has booked two historic American railcars. Learn more about these vintage passenger cars in the “About The Cars” section, below. All Sweetheart Special passengers will have the opportunity to ride both of cars during the 200-mile-long journey.

All passengers will enjoy a delicious lunch buffet hosted aboard the Sweetheart Special cars. There will also be sweet treats, Valentines-themed fun activities, and unparalleled travel along the beautiful Central Coast to San Luis Obispo. Beverages and a light snack are also included with the ticket price.

Passengers may board the Sweetheart Special at either the Santa Barbara or Goleta Amtrak stations. The train will depart Santa Barbara at 10:22 am (10:34 for Goleta), arriving in San Luis Obispo at 1:00 pm. The return trip, aboard the same vintage railcars, will begin at 2:00 pm, arriving in Goleta at 4:22 and Santa Barbara at 4:37.

The Sweetheart Special is a great opportunity to see and enjoy the spectacular and romantic views and sites along this unparalleled oceanside route to San Luis Obispo, including the majestic Gaviota Coast, Santa Barbara Channel Islands, Hollister Ranch, Point Conception, Vandenberg AFB, Pismo Beach, the Edna Valley wine country, a number of state and county beach parks – including El Capitan, Refugio, Gaviota, Ocean Park, and Jalama – and more.
