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

My husband and I love trains! We decided to do the Murder Mystery on the Filmore & Western. We have done the day trip before and loved it but this trip was a over nighter because it was a night trip.The actors were so personable. They went out of their way to talk to everyone, I was so impressed because... More

This was billed as a "Magical Evening aboard the New Years Eve Train" and at $110 per person I was expecting something pretty memorable. I have travelled on trains all over the world and although not anticipating the Orient Express, I was hoping for a certain ambience, as were some of the other people who had clearly dressed for a...

I wanted to spend some time with my 6 year old daughter so I took her on the Weekend Scenic tour. I'm from the area, so I had no illusions about the ride being especially scenic, unless farmland and ramshackle ranch-hand housing could be considered scenic. Nice views of the local mountains, though. Our railcar was kind of dirty. My... More
