Eureka Speeder / Train Rides

Take a ride on Humboldt’s historic rails with a scenic trip along the bay across the Eureka Slough on Timber Heritage Association’s crew car rail speeder! Fun for the whole family! Rides every 1/2 hour with the last ride leaving at 4:00 PM.

Our signature ride, offered every 4th Saturday of June, July, August, and September, is a four-mile round trip ride from the town of Samoa, along the beautiful Humboldt Bay to Manila. This is a great ride to see the flora and fauna of Humboldt Bay as well as some historic locations. These 1/2 hour rides begin at 10 a.m. and run every 1/2 hour until 4 p.m, with the last ride leaving at 4:00 p.m. On these fourth Saturdays, our historic Samoa Shops are open for tours and you can see many of Timber Heritage’s collections of logging artifacts and locomotives. We have lots of docents/volunteers available to answer questions about the buildings, locomotives, and Timber Heritage Association during these events.

If you would like to ride the crew/speeder car come to any of our advertised dates.
