We visited Casa de Fruta on the Pacheco Pass. They have a train that gives a good 15 minute ride. I especially enjoyed the stretch along the creek. An old locomotive and set of cars is for sale. The station is called the "Casa de Choo Choo".

Caboose A red caboose is on display. July, 2013.

On the way back from our Disneyland, 2013 trip, we took I-5 instead of 101. After crossing the Pacheco Pass, we made an early-morning stop at Casa de Fruta. A tour bus had arrived just ahead of us, so there was time to look around at the railroad.

Crossing Sign/1 A crossing sign. July, 2013.

Tunnel Portal/1 One end of the Haunted Tunnel. July, 2013.

Tunnel Portal/2 The locomotive sits behind a gate at the other end of the Haunted Tunnel. The track branching to the right goes to a shed. July, 2013.

Shed The shed at the end of the branch track. July, 2013.

Zoo After passing the shed, the track heads into the petting zoo. I suppose that is a fuel tank. July, 2013.

Crossing Sign/2 Another crossing sign. July, 2013.

The line cleared up and we had to get back on the road before I was able to visit the Casa de Choo Choo. I'd like to go back another time, a little later in the day.
