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

Take a trip back into past!!! The nostalgia is overwhelming as you walk through the train station with artifacts and photos from the good ole' days. Tickets are reasonably priced with themed rides throughout the years. Get there early to board. The country side view from the train is beautiful and often you'll see wildlife along the way. There is... More

Had gone there in the fall and took the train ride and took in the view of the country side while riding the train and all the beautiful colors of the different trees. The view was breath taking and the ride was pretty awesome. If you have young kids they will love it. Adults love it also. Worth the trip... More
