Great time for four hours in a vintage train car climbing the mountain to the High Falls. Good lunch on board and helpful stewards who answered all our questions.

Took this trip with three children and my great aunt and it was a wonderful day. The lunch was OK and everyone was happy by the time we reached the falls. Plenty of time to explore and take pictures at the top. The rude home was just as peaceful. All the kids napped and then we spent the rest of... More

Enjoyed the relaxing train ride. Liked that fact that the train included a lunch and did not charge extra. I thought then lunch of cold cups, chips, past salad, cookies, fruit cups, and soft drinks was fine. Staff was very friendly

Have been on the regular train trip to High Falls twice and went on the Polar express last year! Beautiful scenery from the comfort of your seat in one of the cars. Great entertainment on the Polar Express! Any kid from 3 to 93 would enjoy it!

A nice train ride up the mountain. Great buffet lunch while we rode. Layover to see the falls and let children get some exercise. Beautiful scenery.

POOR planning...we had reservations since March but, when we boarded the train we were seated in a car that was reserved for a large family reunion..we felt totally uncomfortable. also the food was not very good, and trying to carry it to the table was awful. Too crowded in the dining and serving area.. WOULD NOT TAKE THIS TRAIN AGAIN.!... More

We enjoyed the train ride very much. We liked the stop at the falls the best and got a chance to walk down to them. The lunch was just ok. The sandwich buns looked like plain hamburger buns, the ham was a very cheap grade and had a strange taste and the pasta salad was over cooked and did not... More

the train experience was enjoyable with nice scenery. I would suggest extra money for the parlor car and the 4 hour train was long enough.
