Railway advertised best place to see the fireworks, WRONG! 70$ down the drain. No direction by staff, dropped off 1/4 mile walk, awful planning. We couldn't see the fireworks from the barge just bridge. Picture showed train by the bridge and fireworks all around , this wasn't like the ad at all. Never again.

The train experience was very enjoyable, and the commentary by on board person was very informative and well done. Having said that ... The administration end at the facility is in need of a serious process review. You are better off buying the tickets via telephone. Their office is located in Denver, and they were helpful. The ticket office in... More

I love exploring, especially my home state, so when Groupon came out with a 2-for-1 deal on the Shoreline excursion, I bought it, Then I invited my cousin to join me. The website doesn't offer much information so here are a few things you need to know before booking, First of all the train cars aren't all vintage. We boarded... More

Okay you have been warned! Very slow train moving through the cranberry bogs and overgrown shrubs and trees. You really do not see much. Thank God there was an father osprey in the nest watching over his young. Speaking of young...I am guessing that most parents go on vacation and forget to discipline the children they have in tow.

We enjoyed the trip, scenery, and the commentary tho it was a bit hard to hear. We wanted first c1ass but the the car was removed and yet we were fine in the coach cars as there few others in them which were neat, quiet and spacious. The bathroom was another story, to be avoided! The tickets were bought through... More

Trains are a slow means of travel thru the back yards of America. You get to see foliage and lots of it and probably broken down stuff in peoples yards. We find this interesting. We have been to the Grand Canyon and loved the beauty. Some friends thought that it was just a big hole in the ground, stopped in... More

Being something of an anorak (UK speak for train buff) I had booked this in advance and was very well rewarded for my effort. Upon arrival at the small station the more than friendly counter staff had everything organised, tickets, allocated seating etc. Being end of the season gift stock was a bit low but that saved me money so...

The experience we had on the Cape Cod Railroad was very positive. We arrived early in order to board with 2 wheelchair passenger's. Measuring the wheelchairs when we arrived the railroad staff decided that the wheelchairs would not fit through the coach door. We were moved up to first class. The staff was very helpful in getting the wheelchairs. So... More
