This past summer our Florida train loving grandson, age 5, came to visit. This train ride was a must do. Reservations online were a little cumbersome but we did it and chose our own seats in the car near the open air passenger last car. Good choice for this little active guy! On the way to Attica, about a 30... More

I'm visiting in town from Montana and my family wanted to take me for a train ride! It happened to be the Polar Express! It was absolutely wonderful!! They got Snacks, cocoa, a book, pictures with santa, gifts! The staff was beyond amazing! My family will be making it a yearly tradition! Thank you

This was our first ride on the A & A, even though we are lifelong residents of western NY. We sat in the open air car, which was the end of the train on the trip to Curriers, and right behind the engine on the way home. There was some picturesque scenery, but the tracks also passed through some rundown... More

A really nice train ride on an old steam locomotive. The fall colors were not in full bloom, but pretty nonetheless. Did not really need the half hour rest in Curries but enjoyed the museum. We had a great day weatherwise, and I would recommend this. Although they sell kids tickets, I do not feel children enjoy this ride. We... More

OK; maybe we're out of line expecting kids to settle down and actually stay in their seats, but let's face it--the CONSTANT back and forth, between cars, can really grate on one's nerves. There's nice scenery here, but it's hard to concentrate with all the noise and hustle/bustle. And the accordion player and his helper didn't help--they sing some old... More

We visited the Arcade & Attica Railroad with a group. We were excited and pleased to see our train would be pulled by a steam locomotive. The ride was through forest and agricultural areas. We spotted several white tailed deer along the ride. The staff was friendly and helpful. A highlight was a couple playing older music and giving us... More

If you remember the days of steam, then this train trip is not to be missed. Well organized with a friendly and helpful staff. OK, the steam train does not go fast from Arcade up towards Attica, but who cares! You are on it for the atmosphere.

This was so cool. I'm in a wheelchair and this was very handicapped accessible. The ride was 2.5 hr. Beautiful scenery. If you've never done this, I would definitely recommend going.

The Arcade and Attica Railroad is great for a day with the grandchildren! The steam engine and vintage cars provide a great experience for all. The ride is most enjoyable and the employees are super friendly! After a nice winding ride through the country side, the train stops in Curries where you will find a train meusum and yummy refreshments.... More

It is a short line train that. Runs excursion rides on the weekend. The name of the railway misleads a little. The train no longer runs to Attica. There was a bridge washout in the 50's that caused them to shorten the line Important information is there is NO bathroom on the train. Just at the station. Nice but not... More
