We decided to take a couple of train rides this Fall and this was one of them. The drive out was pretty scenic in NH with color in good shape. It was less colorful in VT and on this ride, but a good outing nonetheless. The ride was comfortable and the host commentary was good, but (as another reviewer has... More

I got my tickets on a PBS auction, so I wasn't sure what to expect. We got on in Chester to ride to and from Rockingham.

We decided that a train would be a great way to see some of the VT sights. The sights did not disappoint and the people along the way were friendly. I will say that it is hard to hear what the narrator is saying so sit close to the front and on the right side if possible. The train stops... More

Great train ride through the rolling hills of Vermont, especially in the Fall, during foliage time. Friendly, informative staff.

Loved the old style diner. Great food, staff and never a rush. Be sure to check it out to mingle with the locals.
