View of branches hitting the windows, nothing to see in the town. This trip is a waste of money and time. BORING
Great excursion at a relaxed pace in an old railway coach. Nice scenery, great fun for the kids. The staff were friendly and helpful - all volunteers.
Its to bad that this train only runs in the summer. They have opened a dining car, and it is so much fun. The ride is to short, but well worth it. Loved it, will do it again this year.
Thank you for your review of our train ride. We operate the train from June to December with only a short break in November to prepare for Santa's visit on board. Our Fall Colours trips in September offer a great view of the changing colours of the Oak Ridges Moraine from the comfort of your seat. We have recently cleared... More
Our family of four rode the Santa train for the first time on December 15th. All in all it was a pleasant one hour experience which the kids enjoyed. There were christmas carollers, a magician, clown and Santa. As we left the train, our children received a loot bag of goodies (a nice touch). Would I recommend it to my... More
We went on the Santa Train today - December 15th. It was on time and the train was cute. There were some carollers, a magician and a balloon maker. Santa came around and talked with our kids. He was very pleasant - I think this was the best part of the trip. There were no cookies and hot chocolate as... More
Took our two young kids on the Santa train ride this morning. It was an interesting experience. Our seats were in a car outfitted with dining chairs and tables. The chairs were open back and within 5 minutes of sitting down, my two year old slipped through the back of the chair and fell on the floor! Luckily he was... More
This was an amazing activity. Ride along an historical railway in the Oak Ridges moraine starting from Uxbridge. Great scenery. Snack bar available. Fun for the whole family.

My husband and I had a really fun time riding on the old railway train. The colours had just started to change colour on the trees so the scenery was beautiful. We met some very nice people while we were there and had a wonderful afternoon. I would recommend this if you love old trains.

Our 8 year old son is a train nut; he has been since, well, his whole life. We travelled on the York - Durham Heritage on Labour Day Weekend and had a wonderful time. The staff were all friendly, easy - going, and very pleasant. It is obvious that they love what they do, and realizing that they are all... More
