Great fun on the Murder Mystery Train. Dinner and dessert included, approximately 3 hour train ride with old fashioned fun murder mystery. Most of the characters interacted with all the tables, lots of laughs and silliness.Relaxing trip from Fillmore to Piru and back.

A thoroughly enjoyable morning spent at the railway- away from the chaos that is Cali. It was like stepping back in time.

The Fillmore & Western Railway has a museum as well as an actual working railroad that you can hold parties or have a conducted rail experience on. For old train buffs this is a great way to end your day in Santa Paula.

I am disabled and was able to board the train with ease and able to sit at the table (chairs, not benches) for meals. Just let them know you are handicapped/disabled when making your reservations. Have a great time! :)
