I was super excited to do the "scenic" railroad trip up along Lake Superior. Sadly, it was "scenic" for a very short period of time. Each train car was packed; the AC in the car we were in was not working so it was uncomfortable (and the weather outside was maybe 70) and stagnant. We could not hear the person giving us information. The train rambled slowly along city streets and neighborhoods and trees - with only 10-15 minutes of traveling near Lake Superior. Honestly, I was counting the minutes until it was done. (This was a 90 minute tour.) The last half of the trip was difficult as many little children were screaming or fussing.
My suggestion to the railroad: Do a family tour and then do an all adult tour the next trip.
We were not the only ones frustrated. One woman at the end of the trip had the same complaints and gave them to the ticket booth man. He did not respond. I, instead, decided to post my thoughts on tripadvisor.com.
I would not recommend this trip at all.
