This staff favorite joined the line in 1998, retaining the original open air feel and is the only car that was not restored with air conditioning. During the hot summer days, the temperature in the Silverado Car can soar into the 90's. But on most days, Napa Valley has beautiful weather. The car is equipped with ceiling fans and large windows. If you are concerned that you might be uncomfortable, we strongly suggest riding in the Gourmet Car or Vista Dome.
While guests are seated in this car for the duration of the journey, all guests are encouraged to explore the Train to see our collection of restored railcars. Immediately adjoining the Silverado Car is the Wine Tasting Car which is open to all passengers.
In the spirit of traditional rail seating, you may share a table with another party in the Silverado Car during our lunch trains. Private seating is available at a limited number of tables in the Gourmet Express Lunch Package, all tables in the Champagne Vista Dome, and during dinner trains on the Gourmet Express Package.
