On Saturday September 11th, the Sacramento Steampunk Society and the Great Basin Costume Society will board recently restored 1914 pullman cars behind a recently restored steam engine for an all-day excursion from Carson City to Virginia City and return.
We will dine at Red's Old 395 Grill in the evening. Red's has great old steamy decor - including a horse-drawn fire wagon hanging from the ceiling. All steampunks are welcome and encouraged to join us.
The train ride is one and a half hours each way, with costumed docents and conductors to reveal the history of the train and the passing countryside. We will have a costumed local guide for a short walking tour of Virginia City then have time to eat and shop in the historic silver mining town. This is the same day as the Camel and Ostrich races - so it should be interesting.Train tickets are $50 per adult.
Mark your calendar now and RSVP on Facebook for the Steam Train Excursion. Our Facebook event invitation has been recently updated with details about the trp. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=120799734601976
