We stayed here (as a aouple) for two nights with a party of 16 other people (partly couples), all of us are railfans (i.e tend to be tolerant here).
Cabooses have never been 1st class hotel rooms, they always were retreats for the train staff such as brakemen and conductors, just meant for them to survive in cold or frozen times.
Nobody sleeping there on a moving train had a shower in recent three days, and also nobody could afford to buy Guerlain Habit Rouge After Shave.
That was basically our expectation, and it was more than met :-((. A lot of the cabooses need rework badly.
Breakfast service again was impeccable, and friendly too.
Bottom line: ok if you want to experience old, worked cabooses.
ok for kids probably not ok for spouses (i apologize if i am wrong here, but i think i am not).
Landscape in the area is phantastic, as is sightseeing, but it is (thanks god) very rural here.
(and btw, this is not a fake)
