Relaxing, historic train ride through some beautiful country.

Great old fashioned railroad experience! The scenery is very beautiful - not what you expect in the middle of the metro-Cleveland area. The pace is laid back and you get time to... read more

Great old fashioned railroad experience! The scenery is very beautiful - not what you expect in the middle of the metro-Cleveland area. The pace is laid back and you get time to think. You can people watch, too! There were lots of people stopping at the little stations here and there, we did a round-trip top to bottom. It was... More

We booked the 1st class, Emerson car. The seats were cushiony and comfy. Upstairs in our car were the dome car seats. We didn't book those because some reviewers had commented on it being too hot. The cooling system was working great when we were on the train. We hopped off for lunch, then finished our trip. If you do... More

After hearing about the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad for years we decided to take a trip. I do not understand the hype. The train was on the dirty side and the word scenic should not be included. There was nothing to see. We were very disappointed. If you just want to enjoy a train ride then give it a try but... More

An alright tour and I'm glad to see them cut down on motor vehicle traffic in the park. Probably well worth it for the bike and board aspect if I come back to the area

We took the kids for the morning round trip from the north terminal in Valley View for a 9 to noon excursion on a Friday morning. We bought tickets online in advance and the website purchase was clear, strait forward, and showed the options well. We opted for 4 seats in the dome observation car. The ride was smooth and...

Took the train for 4 hours on a Saturday afternoon in the first class coach. Comfortable seats. Nice scenery. Interesting ride to see the region. Many cyclists are on board and all around. Good way to enjoy the afternoon.

The railroad was brought into use as a passenger train in order to cut down on the cars in the valley. What a great idea! In addition to riding up and down the Cuyahoga River corridor as a train passenger, you can also ride your bike on the many country roads and paths, with the option of jumping on the... More

Wanting to try something new in Cleveland, I booked a train ride taking off from the Peninsula Depot. Who knew there were such lovely metro parks within an hour of Cleveland? It was a busy day and luckily we found the last parking spot in the overflow lot. There is a small pavilion to wait until the train arrives. Stop... More

As a first time rider on a scenic railroad, we weren't sure what to expect. The ticketing process was easy and we decided to board at the Peninsula Station because of it's frequency of stops. We weren't sure how many actual stops the train makes on it's route North and South but it seemed to only stop at the ends... More
