There’s a new engine in town. Just over two months after Howarth Park in Santa Rosa retired its 50-year-old Engine #74, the park is preparing to celebrate the inaugural ride of its C.P. Huntington Engine #392.
This Saturday, starting at 10 a.m., the park will dedicate its newest attraction, followed by VIP rides until 11 a.m. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the train will open to the public for $2 rides around the track. The dedication ceremony will take place rain or shine, but all train rides are weather permitting.
The ceremony is the official start of this year's train season, running Saturdays and Sundays (Feb. 4 - June 11), 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
