Please check the event Facebook or webpage regularly for updated information about Whistle Stop attractions, mystery guests, related events and sponsor/co-hosts. Demand was incredibly high for the online free tickets and the over 800 available were reserved in a matter of hours. There are still two ways to get free train tickets:
- Ticket giveaways at each of the Whistle Stops – Approximately 40 tickets in set of 2 and 4 seats will be raffled at each of the five Whistle Stops
- Standby – Seat tickets will be available on each of the five hourly train runs (starting at the Westside Santa Cruz Whistle Stop) between 2:00 and 6:00 pm as excess capacity is determined. First come, first served.
- If you do have a confirmed ticket, make sure to pick it up early at the will-call table. If you haven’t picked up your ticket within 15 minutes of departure, you may lose your seats.
