My mate and I booked the 1920s-era Pullman Parlor car for a weekend ride up the tracks to Cheat Falls. Yes, most definitely enjoyed the ride and the short hike down to the falls, despite the persistent drizzle. The train is pulled by a pair of interesting old diesel locomotives. If you're looking for steam, head over to Cass, but... More

[My wife and I just returned home from leading a group of 50 seniors from our church on a four-day, charter bus outing to the Elkins, WV area. This was one of many places we visited during our trip and the review is oriented to our experience travelling by bus as a large group.] Our 50-person group arrived about 10:30... More

My fiance, my parents, and myself rode the New Tygart Flyer on a trip to West Virginia in early May. We purchased parlor car seats, which were fairly comfortable. The sandwich buffet was pretty decent, offering different choices of breads, meats, and cheeses. They also offered salad, chips, and fruit salad. My only complaint about the trip was that the...

We arrived about 30 minutes before departure which was more than sufficient time to look in the gift store and freshen up. This was our first trip to a West Virginia and we expected to see mountain ranges and valleys. Instead you see mostly foliage with glimpses of the river. The stop at Cheat Falls was interesting and there were... More

We departed on our ride out of Elkins, Wv depot at 11 AM on Saturday, May 23rd. Weather was beautiful and it wasn't long before we were climbing upwards. It is a 4 hour trip that goes to Hills Falls where you may detrain and visit the falls. Scenery was really beautiful and the train follows many forks of the... More

My wife and I took the dinner train last summer and we are going again this year. It was a 4 hour round trip and we were served an excellent meal on the way to the falls. After an hour exploring the falls we boarded the train for the return trip and were served an excellent dessert and coffee. It... More

We had a wonderful time. The landscape from beautiful. Lunch was excellent. We got to stop off at the Falls and thought they were spectacular. Good trip if you want to walk around or stay put. We were kept informed along the way as to what we would be seeing.

We took the Mother's Day Mountain Escape four hour dinner train this past Saturday night. It was well worth every penny we paid. The train left and returned on time and the scenery was spectacular, particularly the small river that ran alongside of the train for much of the trip and the waterfall that was located at the turnaround halfway...

We have been on the NTF about five or six times now. We have always left very happy! Yesterday was no exception to the rule... we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the scenery. The service was splendid and the staff was knowledgeable. This was my mother's first train ride with us and she was just in love with it... More

The train left on time and it was not necessary to arrive early. There is nothing to do if you arrive early except sit in cramped waiting room. Lunch, served buffet style was average to poor and difficult to navigate through bumpy train. The view and train ride were enjoyable.
