I've taken this train trip twice - once with my children and my parents, the last time by myself. While I enjoyed it in the company of others, I saw much more when I was alone. The train is comfortable, the staff considerate, and the scenery delightful. I ate breakfast in the dining car. While the food was standard diner quality, the experience of eating while traveling and enjoying the views made it special. The dining car, by the way, serves very good coffee. Once we reached our destination, I took my box lunch (available along with your pre-purchased ticket) to a solitary picnic table, next to the beautiful river. It was peaceful, and no one disturbed me. A short hike through the woods, on a very well-maintained path, provided my daily exercise. Unlike the first trip with my family, the passenger cars now have real-time images projected on flat screen televisions. The cameras are mounted on the front of the engine. These views give a different perspective of the scenery and I found it to be a great bonus. I took this trip in the summer and the weather was perfect. Don't deny yourself (or your children) this beautiful train trip.
