Everyone loves to walk through magical streets. It is more exciting when you decided to look at the outside’s beauty rather than ride throughout the journey. By 1885 the railroads were formed, and it made transportation easier. This innovation led to building “Skunt,” which is called as California’s western railroad.

These rail-buses or rail cruisers, a self-propelled motorcar, had gasoline-powered engines for power and pot-bellied stoves burning crude oil to keep the passengers warm. So on, you can use these tracks to enjoy the beauty of nature throughout the year.

“These trees are hundreds of feet tall and are each a unique monument to the very forest they make up. The tracks of the Skunk Train date back to 1885 and trains have been running over them continuously for 135 years.” Pinoli, chief Skunt expresses about the rides.

By giving a little touch to old construction, the rail-buses are made with two seats and operate electronically. Peddling along the historic tracks, groups wend their way along scenic Pudding Creek, cross over majestic wooden trestle bridges, and journey into the heart of the ancient redwoods of Mendocino County.

Without needing to steer, people are able to look around at all the wonders of the natural world. “Common sightings are otters, egrets, a lounging turtle, deer, and on the early morning trip, an occasional bear too,” Pinoli said.
