The train is well maintained but the ride seemed pretty pricey at over $40. 00 for a 2 hour round trip. I don't think I would do it again.

My mother bought our family tickets for the Western Murder Mystery Dinner Train as a Christmas gift. We did this about 15 years ago and loved it then. There is a winery on site where you can taste some wine before the train ride. Once on the train you already have your salad on the table as well as some... More

I've been on the murder mystery a few times, and I absolutely love it. It's great for any age above 14. The actors are very professional and definitely know how to make you laugh!! I recommend this very highly!

Took the Steam Engine #14 Train from Fillmore to Santa Paula. Round trip was a total of four hours. We stopped in Santa Paula for approximately one and half hours. Then a shorter stop at 'Loose Caboose' where you could buy fresh produce, jams and honey, and knick knacks on the way back. What a fun and relaxing day! We... More

We took a tour bus to the train and as a group got to eat lunch in the dining car. Others traveling alone sit in the regular cars, or outside in an open train car. Ride was about an hour chugging along about 30 mpr. through lots of avocado and orange groves. Nice and senic California. Was pleasant and would... More

This is a nice ride with a group of family or friends. The scenery was beautiful as the train traveled from Fillmore to Santa Paula. The entertainment on the train was adequate. The murder mystery was more of a comedy but entertaining nonetheless. The food was average. The stop in Santa Paula was nice as they have a small store... More

This was a 4 hour train ride from Fillmore to Santa Paula. With a one hour an half stop to visit one of the four Museum, so much to see.All in walking distance. The train travels though orchards of lemons, oranges, avocados, and scattered bee hives. The scenic mountains in the distance add beauty to the trip. They offered food... More

I was very sad to see how much this family outing has changed. We have been taking our kids, grand kids on this great Christmas Tree Train outing for the past several years, kids would be totally excited about taking the train to cut down a Christmas Tree & see Santa. Things have since changed, they hardly have any tress... More

We live locally but take advantage of all the train has to offer. The kids love using the train to go to the pumpkin patch and during the holidays to cut our Christmas tree. The train offers a lot of other events; Tomas the Train, dances, a Murder Mystery and Dinner with Santa. Look at the web site for something... More
