We took the 5pm Santa train on Sunday. This train ride is an hour long trip. The train has one stop to pick up Santa at an old train depot. The trip was okay but I think it could easily with very little effort by the rail road company be a lot better. Mrs Claus is on board for the... More

Boarded the train at 2:40 for a 3:00 departure. Paid $15 each for the trip. The train departed on time and very very slowly crawled up the tracks. There was no scenery to see except peoples back yards that were up against the railroad track on one side, and trees on the other. No decorations, no lights. No refreshments were... More

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
