We had a one-year old train enthusiast with us and he was .delighted to be on a real train but worried by the noise. Most of the loud speaker explanations passed us by as in the second carriage from the engine, the sound system didn't seem to be working properly. All the same, xe enjoyed the visit.

Excellent event with well organised BBQ of super food, magical steam hauled journey and delightful entertainment around the campfire. Just beware - the confirmation states train departs at 6pm. In fact, the BBQ starts at 6pm with the train departure at 7pm. Didn't appear to be a problem for locals or the management but could be for Brits

Fantastic place to visit - we both really enjoyed our visit. Great snapshot of history in the region and break from being on the road. Well worth visiting.

Sugar Pine Mountain Train is a very enjoyable train through the woods just outside Yosemite at Fish Camp! Would highly recommend this fun train ride. Open log sitting enjoying the views of the pines!

An easy do-nothing two hour in your life for the 1 hour ride. Folks at the station are friendly, restroom is kept extreme clean, adequate parking, little museum, gift shop, gold panning, and a bit of local history by the conductor gives you the glimpse of the past. It's suitable from new born to elderly and pets (two corgis' were... More

We wanted to break up our trip and heard about the train ride. The kids all loved it and it was a great way for the adults to relax. Interesting talk along the way too.

My husband, 12 yr old son and I enjoyed the moonlight special (wed and sat eve only) which included dinner. You can buy wine or beer if you choose. This is a really neat trip out into the forest on this great old locomotive and the band sings good campfire songs like John Denver & Merle Haggard! Good time.
