The food was average. There was no commentary about what we were seeing (if anything). Service was below average. Not worth $45 per person.

It was a nice hour and a half long ride in an open air car. The food was ok. The closed cars were mostly unrestored, just the way they should be. Max speed was about 28 mph by my phone gps, A fun low-key event. Mixed views.

I am a true railroad fan and this train ride was one of my all time favorites. A nice long and peaceful trip and the folks here are some of the friendliest people you could meet.

It was okay. we took the 5pm train for the dinner and I was a little disappointed. First a member of our party could not attend due to emergency and no refunds are given at all. The train is old and the dining cart area is not as clean. The food was good, not great on presentation but good. Dinnerware... More

This ride is 1 1/2 hours long, out and back. Traveler tip- sit on the station/boarding side of the train-the other side view is not as nice as you parallel the road. A short local and train history was interesting, comfortable ride. Stops for about 10 minutes at Hammond Lake then heads back. Small snack bar (cash) on board. Not... More

We have wanted to take a train ride. Found out about Tioga railroad and website revealed a dinner ride. 2-1/2 ride. It was an Oktoberfest menu - homemade catering. Chef was awesome! As soon as we boarded dinner was served. Staff was amazingly efficient and friendly. Cash wine & beer available. Perfect amount of time for dinner and ride. Perfect... More

It is something to do for an hour and a half. There isn't much to see but the seats are comfortable.

My partner and I ride every train excursion we can and found this ride boring. A narrator told us the history of the train and the area which was the most interesting part of the ride. Not much to see.

My husband is a train buff, and when we travel we try to work in excursion train rides. So we're working our way through all of them in the U.S. This train ride starts out of a small area near a freight line. There isn't an indoor waiting area, so bring an umbrella if it's raining. The train is pulled... More
