We boarded the train for a roundtrip from McEwen to Sumpter, it was an awesome experience. We sat outside and they told us before we left the station that while going in to Sumpter we might want to move inside due to ashes from the woodburning engine landing on our clothes, it wasn't that bad at all, the black specs shake right off, my husband's white t-shirt stayed white LOL. There was a layover in Sumpter of about an hour and a half, go see the gold dredge, there is also 2 walking trails around it, plenty of time to walk them. All in all, we would definitely go there again, very enjoyable.
