The M & H railroad regular train ride is just that. Nothing spectacular. They give you a little history of the R & R and the surrounding area. The staff was nice and the ride was reasonably priced. The grandkids enjoyed the ride, especially our grandson, he loves train rides no matter what.

Took the polar bear express train. It is not worth it. Cannot see anything. The park's lights were better than their "north pole". Very disappointed. The old train was neat and nostalgic but the ride was very slow

In spite of a dangerous snowstorm that turned us back and US Weather Service reports calling for several inches of snow, widespread dangerous travel due to snow covered roads, and reduced visibility below one quarter of a mile" they won't even hear of a refund or raincheck. Classic example of greed! It... More

The experience is just that, riding in an old train. There is not much to see on the ride. But I loved it! Would go back for a special ride.

Very nice 1 hour ride along the Swatara Creek. The Fall foliage trips and Santa Claus trains at Christmas are very nice also.

Two cabooses pushed/pulled by a yard switcher. Don't get me wrong the cabooses have a historical meaning and they were pretty cool but we... More

ave gone there for years, first with our kids and now with the grandkids. It is what it is, a very old train line but well worth the time and money to ride it. Visiting, go ride it, no disappointment.
