“Peaceful way of spending a Sunday afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Certainly one of the more enjoyable trips outs in Ohio. Definitely worth while booking up in advance to ride in one of the dome carriages. yes more expensive than the other seats but as you are raised well above the normal carriage roofs it certainly gives you a much better view. Train chugs along at quite a slow rate - which is just enough so you can take in the beauty of surroundings. Food and drink is available on board. As other reviews have commented - if you take very children - be prepared to occupy them. Worthwhile organising your trip so you can stop at Peninsula station then catch the next train back.

“great way to see the valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We were treated to a ride by our daughter. It was a nice way to see the valley and enjoy her company too. The railroad offers special events too, and I am sure they are a lot of fun. It stops at several places, Peninsula, Oh being our favorite town. It has several galleries and a tavern as well as a pictureque veiw of the Cuyahog river and old locks.

“Wonderful Train Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I understand you can bring your bike and bike along the tow path one direction and then ride the train back (with your bike). We saw wildlife and wonderful views of the Cuyahoga River. A fun afternoon for kids and adults... just be ready for some high steps getting on & off the train - the train volunteers will help you and have some 'step boxes' to help.

“Fun Ride!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We took the kids on the train and did the brunch ride. Food was good and the ride was nice. It lasted about 2 hours, which was the perfect amount of time for our 7 & 11 year old!

“Average Train Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

The train ride is just an average train ride. It lasts about 2 1/2 hours. My kids enjoyed it but it was a long time for them to sit still. We really enjoyed the men that work on the train who come by and give you information and show animal skins.
