SEE THE NATIONAL PARKS OF THE WEST IN STYLE OR HAVE DINNER AT HEARST CASTLE

 

Exciting Fall Colors of the American West or Life at Hearst Castle by Train

By Rosalie Frances

Ever wondered who was riding the trains through the ‘wild west’ or what life was like for those travelers in the 1800 and 1900s. Jesse James, Butch Cassidy, Calamity Jane and a bevy of settlers and gold rush enthusiasts all traveled our early trains, along with US Presidents, including President Theadore Roosevelt. They all saw, in their own way, the success to be gained by this form of transportation in America’s future. The history of the hard work of those who built the trains and laid the tracks, along with dedicated employees who kept railroad travel moving, and stories of the adventurers who had to “go west” made it all happen. All these factors worked to give us easy access to the amazing destinations we now view while riding the rails today. Or have you ever wished you could live a day in the shoes of Marion Davies & William Randolph Hearst? Well, in October there is a two day trip that leaves from Union Station in LA that will make your wish come true. Yes, a private tour of the castle with dinner at the Neptune Pool.

These October train travelers can view the changing of the colors passing through the historic sites of America’s national parks of the west, where they enjoy the ultimate scenic views of the west, as the colors of fall change each destination during a nine day train adventure from October 17 through 25 on the California Zephyr Railcar Charter National Parks of the West trip, or take a two day trip to Hearst Castle, experience the best of everything at the "Ranch" and visit area wineries on the way home.

The luxury rail accomodations, motorcoach fees, bar service on the train, gourmet meals, fine wine and spirits are all part of traveling with this outstanding company.Visit: www.calzephyrrailcar.com. __________________________________________________________________

In the new series, DALLAS CAR SHARKS, VELOCITY takes viewers to the Lone Star State where car enthusiasts from across America gather to participate in the ultracompetitive world of car flipping. The series follows tough-talking, larger-than-life dealers as they compete to outbid and out-buy each other in the intense world of automobile auctions. Viewers will experience thrills, triumphs and tough losses with the sharks this season on VELOCITY.

On next week's episode of DALLAS CAR SHARKS, nothing says ‘buy me’ like a car with a little personality. The sharks are blown away when their auction winnings show bold personas as soon as they get off the block. Tommy’s 1999 Prowler gets flirty at his shop, Ash’s 1969 Camaro SS shows its stubborn side. JD’s 3-series BMW turns into a total tease, and Martha’s latest beater truck proves while it may be down, it’s not out. This week viewers will question who the true characters are, the sharks or the cars? Watch it all go down on the Tuesday, July 30 at 8:30 PM (ET/PT) on VELOCITY.
