We thought the decorations were great, but there can always be more. Our grandsons-8 & almost 4, seemed to have an enjoyable time. The "elf" assigned to our club car was incredibly enthusiastic! "Elf" Jacob was fun, full of energy and appeared to be enjoying himself, which truly makes for a memorable experience. Everyone around us appeared to be in... More

Right in the centre of Fillmore, Its perfectly placed with lots of photo opportunities. Look at the website to peruse the various trips on the historical trains. Christmas, Halloween, Mystery & speciality are all run throughout the year. The sidings are regularly used by film companies, so you might even see a movie being made. Parking is easy & a... More

My family and I headed to Fillmore based on an advertisement I had seen in the westways magazine. We had a day free so we took the train along the route and tasted fresh fruit nuts and honey. It was a nice day to spend away from the heat of the Central Valley. Paying for tickets and boarding the train... More

We took our two grandchildren on the Fillmore train ride to the pumpkin patch and corn maze. It was an incredible time. The girls are 5 and 9. The corn maze was so much fun. The kids were running through it, laughing just having a great adventure. The corn was quite an attraction as well. A special hybrid with beautiful... More

We had a wonderful afternoon. We saw the history of algriculture. Its a must for children both young and old as it captures history as an experience in a fun filled manner that is unforgettable. With the santa Paula hands-on museum children and adults learn the history of this beautiful area's agriculture. The conductor sings out all aboard punches your... More

The trains runs through a beautiful landscape, groves of oranges and avocados, and coastal mountains in the background. I learned little about a part of the state I was completely ignorant of until I came here. There's a long stop in Santa Paula where you can check out murals or even a couple of museums or find something to eat.... More

We've gone on the Pumpkinliner a few times as well as a Christmas tree farm trip and the day excursion, with our young son. He loved the whole experience. Where else can you not only see but BOARD an old train? Try both the open air and the covered trains--both different equally fun. We got to see areas we'd have... More
