A friend and I made this trip towards the end of October, 2013, and it was a great experience. We had seats at a table in the 'Prospector' car which was a closed car and it was warm and cozy.. I wondered how the passengers in the 'open' car were doing on the way back as it rained and snowed on that leg of the trip? We had been advised, by friends, to sit on the right hand side going up to Silverton and this was great advice.
Our Attendant, Heather, was very knowledgeable on the history of the railway and also did a running commentary on the scenery and points of interest all along the way.
Heather also supplied refreshments - like tea - coffee - bottled water, beer - and more. She did such a great job and we thank her very much.
Great experience and we hope to repeat it one day in the future.
