Saturday was filled with a tour of the Charles M. Schulz Museum. (Schulz drew the Peanuts comic strips and was Santa Rosa's most famous resident.)

 
  It didn't take long for the crew to spot this particular drawing.  
 

Dinner was aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train.

 
 

Northbound on the Wine Train-- before the party had time to get out of hand.

 
 

Sunday brought a ride on the Niles Canyon Railway, organized by AFT veteran Michael Pechner.

 
 

The Niles Canyon Railway runs over a portion of the original transcontinental railroad.

Lunch was at Bosco's Beer & Brew in Sunol. Terrific food!

 
 

Sunday night -- time for the customary reunion banquet.

 
 

The evening ended, as always, with a screening of the film All Aboard America.

 
 

Our hosts -- Tina Luster and 'Wild' Bill Hoban.

 
 

Warren Motts won the popular vote to host the next reunion in Columbus, Ohio -- in 2014.
