“Fun Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We took the train trip on Friday, August 18. I was a little bit unsure if we could bring our two year old Yorkie with us, but she was welcomed with open arms.
The train ride was smooth and comfortable. They give you a good history of the train as you head north. It's about a 20 minute ride, then there is a stretch break.
All aboard and 20 minutes later, you're back to the main station. It was a fun ride that was enjoyed by all.

“Great fun and beatiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We decided to take this train mainly because our 3-y-o daughter loves trains, but we all had a really great time. The track cuts through dense wooded areas, corn and veggie fields, ponds and streams that are peacefully removed from roads, and this adds to the feeling of travelling through another time. Most of the track is elevated along land bridges so high that you're peeking through the treetops at all the beautiful landscape. The conductor provides informative and entertaining descriptions of the landmarks along the way -- bridges, golf courses, abandoned stations. Highly recommended.

We took the 11:00 am train, and it was an hour long - perfect for my toddler's attention span. Plan extra time for buying tickets and boarding.

My son is 3 and loves trains! This trip was definitely a highlight for him. It is great for kids and I'd love to take him on the birthday car sometime in the future!
