Pacific Coast Railroad
Like a magical vision from a bygone era, the steam-powered Pacific Coast Railroad never fails to enchant visitors to Santa Margarita Ranch.
Founded by ranch co-owner Rob Rossi, the Pacific Coast Railroad follows a narrow-gauge loop around the ranch headquarters, offering wide-open views of the surrounding meadows and mountains.
The railroad includes three engines, as well as four 5/8 scale passenger coaches from the Santa Fe & Disneyland Railroad dating back to the 1950s. Yes, it’s true–the charming passenger coaches of the Pacific Coast Railroad once graced the legendary Disneyland theme park in Anaheim! These coaches have since been lovingly restored, much to the delight of children and adults alike.
The Pacific Coast Railroad is a visitor favorite at Best of the West. Hitch a ride back into time…
