The Skunk Train
Hwy 1 & Laurel Street
PO Box 907
Fort Bragg, CA 95437
The famous Skunk Train allows small dogs to see the sights provided they are in a approved covered carrier while on the train. Contrary to what some might think, the skunk refers to the odor from the original gasoline engines that were formerly used (now they have steam engines). Pets may be let out of the carrier at Northspur or Willits when you are off the train. Travelers will thoroughly enjoy the magnificent redwoods, picturesque water views, and over 30 bridges the train passes through.
San Francisco Cable Cars
Cable Car Barn & Powerhouse
1201 Mason Street San Francisco, CA 94108
(corner of Mason and Washington Sts.)
Since BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) only allows very small dogs in their carriers, we decided that it would be more fun to hop on the infamous San Francisco cable cars (after all they do run on rails). You and your dog can traverse this hilly city via any of the cable cars.
Conway Scenic Railroad
North Conway, NH 03860
Travel on a nostalgic train rides through the beautiful Mount Washington Valley and the surrounding White Mountains of New Hampshire. You can choose from either the Valley Train route to Conway (55 minutes) or to Bartlett (1 3/4 hour). You'll journey back in time in the comfort of their restored, open or enclosed, passenger cars.
