While cruising the route along the Santa Susana Mountains, passengers are treated to railway entertainment, dining and holiday festivities.
If you've never had the pleasure of taking a trip on one of the Fillmore & Western Railways, you've missed out on one of the best forms of entertainment that Ventura County has to offer.
What better time to take your maiden trip than on the North Pole Express Ride. These events are a total blast for the whole family. I promise you, you won't regret the time and money you spend; it's well worth it.
This year the Fillmore & Western Railways is bringing back Engine #14, their first "go green" locomotive. The #14, a Baldwin Steam Engine locomotive was built in 1913 and has been idle for 50 years.
It has now been completely rebuilt and has been converted from a coal-fired to an oil-fired engine and has been outfitted to be fired by recycled vegetable oil and will be one of a handful of locomotives in the country to "go green".
The locomotive was purchased by Fillmore & Western in December of 1999 from Dodge City Railroad in Dodge City, Kansas and hadn't seen service on the rails since the 1960's. The locomotive will be back on the track as one of the December Christmas Holiday trains.
