A wonderful experience a first for myself and my grandson- a magical event we were both wide eyed -it was very organized-proprietors did a good job of preventing line anger! Assigned seating great solution. Jack was in awe with Santa and his magic bell- how special Santa pulled out a red light from Jacks ear for two days he kept... More

I was very sad to see how much this family outing has changed. We have been taking our kids, grand kids on this great Christmas Tree Train outing for the past several years, kids would be totally excited about taking the train to cut down a Christmas Tree & see Santa. Things have since changed, they hardly have any tress... More

We live locally but take advantage of all the train has to offer. The kids love using the train to go to the pumpkin patch and during the holidays to cut our Christmas tree. The train offers a lot of other events; Tomas the Train, dances, a Murder Mystery and Dinner with Santa. Look at the web site for something... More

Wonderful! Highly recommend! We took our 3yr old grandson and he loved it! We all had a great time. The workers on the train were informative fun and made it so realistic for the kids. There was plenty to do at the pumpkin patch and the afternoon flew by. We plan on making this a yearly event! (I'm so happy... More

I booked this before reading the reviews. And I am so glad I did! This is a fun family day! My grandkids love trains! It was a blast! From the ticket ladies to the train conductors and everyone else running this adventure, they all made it fun. There was face painting, hot dogs and tri-tip sandwiches, beers and wine, a... More

Riding the Filmore train with friends and family has always been an enjoyable experience. I recommend the weekend scenic excursions. It's the least expensive and good value for your money. I've done the Murder Mystery tours as well, they are pricey but worth it if you go with a group of friends who are ready to add fun to the... More

Docents met us at the train for tours of the California Oil Museum, Ventura County Agriculture Museum and the Glen Tavern Inn. After a short stop at the Loose... More

It is a show/dinner train. There is live entertainment while you are on the train for few hours and they serve dinner at the same time. The Service: One server has to take care multiple tables. Each table has 4 customers. Service is considered slow..... The Food: Taste like cafeteria food. Food is pre-cooked, not even warm. Under seasoned. Way... More

We took the regular excursion rather than the murder mystery lunch train. $23 (senior) versus $63 which left at the Sam time. Our cars were coupled with theirs so we went the same place. Two different engines, one front one back. Sat in open car part time, inside part and parlor/dining car part. Had lunch on train, very inexpensive. Saw... More

My kids surprised me with a special birthday on the Margarita Madness Dinner. I loved it! Good food and a relaxing, slow train ride through the beautiful orchards. Left Fillmore station at 6:30 and enjoyed dinner, drinks, and dancing...there is an open dance car or two...with music, lights and a bar. The staff was friendly and the train was beautifully...
