I waited for the train but it didn't appear. I found out, by chance, that the railway was suspended due to flood problems. I accept that this can happen, but a sign on the ticket office should have been displayed to this effect. Very disappointed

The trains are reasonably priced and comfortable. A 90 minute trip was just right - fun to see and learn more about the city. Kids will adore taking a "real" train ride!

We rode on the Sunday 10:30 am train ride. We used a Buy One Get One Free admission coupon, and kids 3 and under are free. The train is amazing...and very authentic looking. This was more of an "Experience" to me than just a scenic train ride. This is an all volunteer historic attraction, and while this is visually evident... More

This was right by our campground at Indian Point. An ex DMIR Pullman coach and a flatcar converted to outdoor seating with a fence and rails pulled by a small switcher.
