We enjoyed a lovely scenic tour with friends while enjoying the most delicious brunch. The lobster omelet was decadent and the Mimosa was refreshing! Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend it!

While visiting Hyannis, Cape Cod July 2013, my husband and I decided to experience the Cape Cod Central RR trip from Hyannis to Sandwich. The trip was narrated by an experienced and knowledgeable woman who gave us all the information about what we were seeing along our journey. I think this is a nice way to spend a couple of... More

This holiday attraction is hands down the best we have experienced. The Polar Express can not compete with the festive feeling of this train ride. You will have elves dancing and singing, Christmas music piped into your heated train car, tasty cookies and hot cocoa, and with some tickets you take home a great mug. A book is read while... More

I went on this trip as part of a large group tour. We sat in the dining cars. I thought this was to be a scenic tour. The windows where we were seated were very scratched and made seeing anything difficult and photographing impossible. The food was very good but I didn't need an expensive meal to go with my... More

We made the trip to the Cape with this specific attraction in mind, for our twin, six year old, grandsons. Both have a deep interest in trains, and were thrilled to take a ride on this one. The train leaves Hyannis for a two hour round trip, to the Cape Cod canal, and return, making a stop in Sandwich. You... More

If you are in Hyannis and looking for some entertainment you might try the CC Central Railroad's Narrated Scenic Train Ride. Decent vistas are had along the way and the live commentary is informative. The RR takes you from Hyannis to the Cape Cod Canal. Here you find the most interesting views especially if there is traffic on the canal.... More

With an interest in railways and a visitor from the Uk this was an interesting couple of hours. As we were not familiar with the area we even found the swamps and trees interesting. There was an excellent commentary, giving you the history of the railway and the surrounding area. We were especially interested in the cranberry farms and the... More

It was just a trip back and forth with no scenic spots. Only interesting and informative thing was the cranberry harvesting season and seeing some of the cranberry flooding and dry harvesting places. I'm glad that we saw a couple of them. Otherwise it would have been very boring.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Brunch Train on this railroad. The railcar was beautifully appointed and the food, prepped and cooked to order on the train, excellent. The service was superb and the staff keen to serve. All in all, a great meal on a scenic journey.

We have wanted to try Cape Cod Railroad's Elegant Dinner Train since seeing it on TV about a decade ago, and for our 20th anniversary, we made the trip, and was it ever worth it! True, you don't really see a lot, but the trip was fun and relaxing, the staffers all super talented (it's not easy to serve food... More
