Electric trains are becoming more important to the smooth running of the CTS Tours railroad operating system and the functioning of the CTS Tour Hubs (especially Oceanside, Fullerton & Santa Monica). The train’s construction and beautiful design provides strength and safety including monitoring the train’s safe passage and making adjustments when necessary during the train’s route.   

CTS electric trains generate approximately 90% less exhaust and 50% less noise than the equivalent diesel powered train.  The train’s state of the art battery operated electrical technology & diesel backup provide reliability, speed, and safety.

The day and overnight tour train’s facilities have similarities, however, the overnight tour train has more extensive services and train cars including private sleeping accommodations and spa and salon services.
