Tangerine's Swing Train
All Trips Cancelled for the foreseeable future
WHY? Please read the explanation below
(Don’t forget to open the petition link and sign it.)
We received some disturbing news a few of months ago when we were informed that Amtrak President and CEO Richard Anderson is no longer allowing charter services and special trains to be attached or taken off Amtrak scheduled routes. We waited to see if this decision might be changed or overturned but it hasn’t and it doesn’t look like there is any hope in the near future, especially for our trip to Ventura.
What does this mean? It means the Tangerine’s Dream train trips on the two wonderful private cars to Reno and Ventura are not possible unless or until there is a change in the Amtrak policy for private train cars.
We can’t tell you how upsetting this is to lose this one of a kind train trip for us but for our very special private car owner it really takes away an important part of his life and it also to erode the historic memories of train travel and its importance in the growth of our country.
I’ve copied and pasted some links below to make it easier for you to read about and join us in signing a petition to rescind his decision.
Petition: Please join us!

Train Parties and Beach Hotel 3-Day Weekend Adventure!
Take in more than 100 miles of gorgeous Pacific Coast from both the Silver Dome car and the Tangerine Lounge car, with play parties aboard the train throughout Friday’s and Sunday’s train rides. Spend Friday and Saturday nights at a beach-side Ventura hotel, and come join your fellow travelers for a Saturday night play party in our 4-room double suite.
Spend Saturday morning and afternoon enjoying the sights, sounds and shopping in this picturesque Southern California beach town, or relaxing by the pool and the beach front bar with new friends.
This is a great Travel and Destination event, and what a way to join the “Mile Long Club”! Tangerine's Dream produces the only swing train events in the country, perhaps in the world.
This boutique event is limited to 35 couples, so don't wait - we often sell out early.
