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.

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
