Do NOT arrive an hour early, like suggested! You are told to do this so you can have your tickets scanned and visit the Elves. It takes 15 seconds to scan your tickets, you wait in a tiny gift shop for 30 minutes and, go to another tiny room with absolutely nothing for your kids to do. Elves making wooden... More

Took the parlor car from Elkins to the High Falls of Cheat. The lunch was only ok, but riding in luxury on this train in October was just beautiful. We had assigned seats, but if you ride in one of the other cars, I recommend boarding the train and sitting on the far side (away from the station), you will... More

Took a bit more time than I expected to board everyone. The Tour Guide was very knowledgeable, and was constantly pointing out interesting places, and telling stories. The serving of lunch was basically a disaster, it was to cramped, and you could not pass two people wide in the aisles. The destination of the High Falls was very nice, plenty... More

I went with a group on the train. The railroad station is very scenic this time of year. The train was older than I had imagined. The hallways are narrow. The staff were very nice. The views were nice but not spectacular. The waterfall was lovely but it had started to rain and was a little difficult for the older... More

Brought a busload (56) of people to Elkins for a train ride. The first 2 hrs. were very scenic and interesting. Unfortunately the second 2 hrs. were kind of boring since it was the same scenery, just going backwards. The sandwich and salad that was provided were very good. Unfortunately everyone had to carry their own plate and drink through... More

Went on this trip Saturday, October 4th with some friends and family. A little unorganized in the boarding process. There were not 6 seats together in our car and we were not letting the children sit with strangers. Finally they moved us to the concession car. Very roomy and comfortable. The tunnel was awesome but dark and you couldn't see... More

My husband and I rode o the Cheat Mountain Salamander railroad which is part of the of Tygart Flyer. We had the best time riding in the 1917 railroad car with the windows open,watching the mountains and the river go by. It is truly beautiful, the trees were in full color and to top it off we saw a Bald... More

Attended the mystery dinner Saturday night. The young chef seemingly effortlessly provided prime rib, pork loin and crabmeat stuffed tilapia entrees with potatoes and brocoli. The appetizer was the teaser: simply fruit with creme fraiche. Then spring greens with a sublime strawberry Sauvignon dressing. Choice of Cabernet or Zinfidel flowed. Homemade yeast rolls accompanied the meal. Follwing a stop at... More
