I'm feeling like the Who's Tommy in that I just became aware of the Central Coast Railway Club charter train to the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada. Runs one way from Emeryville to Elko January 31 and back on February 4. For those who have any interest, check out the Central Coast Railway Club web site
. They're offering option of join or detrain in Portola. Also possible to stay on the train all the way to Salt Lake City for extra fare. Anybody going? Yehaw!
