We have talked about taking this train for several years, we are so glad we finally had a chance to do it.
It was a nice, relaxing and scenic trip. We took the train round trip and it was fine. On the way to Silverton, everyone was up and down taking pictures; on the way back everyone just sat back and relaxed.
Our attendant was Heather--she was very attentive, serving drinks and frequently checking to make sure we were comfortable. She was also knowledgable about the railroad and and history of the train, and answered many questions.
This is a great trip that we will remember for years.
