The Ravenswood Docents on the Niles Canyon Railway
On Sunday, July 18, 2004, four of the Ravenswood Docents rode three trips of the Niles Canyon Railway dressed in their 1890s attire in order to promote the Ravenswood Ice Cream Social on August 8.  They were discussing Ravenswood and offering free lemonade to the riders.  These photos were from the 12:00 run.

The Niles Canyon Railway runs on a portion of the same route that the Buckley family would have taken from San Francisco to Livermore for their stays at Ravenswood.  The Buckley's would have traveled by steam engine rather than the 1949 diesel that was running this day.
