the movies have nothing on the Arcade & Attica railroad, which shuffles along -- often behind steam power -- through six miles or so of rural farmland... loud, smelly, colorful and just the right length of the youngsters who are its prime demographic

We have taken our children - now 5,4, and 18 months on the polar express train for the past 3 yrs. It is fun for adults and kids- the cars are decorated for Christmas, Christmas caroles, and santa. The kids can't wait to go again this year.

Don't get me wrong, train rides are great! Being on a train from the 19th century, that's cool history. But, there was nothing to look at!! I'm someone who appreciates nature and its being but that was just bad. They had 2 guys playing the accordion & banjo to entertain, fun for kids(BTW they come around at the end asking... More

We went on a family trip on this railroad. We were able to get an AAA member deal and that made the trip better. There is a small depot where you pick up your tickets. It does get crowded as there is only one clerk but its not as bad as the previous reviews make it seem. The bathrooms are... More

My advice is to get to the station EARLY so you can purchase your tickets (cash only), use the restrooms and buy your souveniers and snacks before the lines begin to form. There was only one person at the ticket booth, gift shop and snack bar, so if you were not there early you had a LONG wait. Both the... More

Our grandson wanted to ride on a real train (without faces) so we opted for the steam engine locomotive. Prices are pretty high (15pp). Bathroom at the station so get there early. Or at the destination there are porta potties. We have been on train rides before where there are "entertainers". This ride had one too. Didn't care for the... More

We took our 4 little grands, ages 4,6,8, and 10 for a trip to the North Pole via the Arcade and Attica Railroad ($14 pp). The ride was leisurely through the southern tier. The train is vintage steam engine and cars which were of the period-nothing fancy but simple lit garland over the windows. The real fun was Squeezebox Johnny... More

I was part of a group that recently went on one of their "Suspense Theater Dinner Trains". It was relatively enjoyable, but I was not "wowed". The only restrooms are at the station in Arcade. When you have100 people getting ready to board for a more than 2 hr. excursion, you end up with very long lines at the beginning... More

We spent a day riding the Civil War train, and what a cool afternoon! It started with soldiers marching down the street, soldiers riding the train with us, and a battle before we turned around and headed home. This is a great treasure, with a working steam locomotive. If you .have a train lover in your house, spend a day... More

If you want to see an up close, huffing, chuffing, living, piece of American history, this is the place to go. A century old working steam locomotive takes passengers through the Wyoming County countryside, complete with scenery of hills, valleys, creeks, livestock and wildlife! A friendly, informative train crew provides informed commentary and occasionally passengers are treated to live music.... More
