This is a nice diversion for kids who love trains, but I didn't find the scenery to be any different than what I could see from the road. There was someone narrating what we were passing, but the speakers were so bad, I didn't understand a word of it.

If you want to sit in the Dome car, get reservations early. We didn't get them but the windows in First Class were huge and our view... More

The ride was about 5 hours long but well worth it. There was a snack bar & staff were very polite & helpful. Definitely worth the money & time.

Our car broke down and we needed to do something that didn't require driving and this fit the ticket. The conductor was very nice and let us get off in Bartlett to hike and we took the next train back. This is a dog friendly activity but we couldn't eat in the dining car. I wouldn't have done this if... More

Incredible engineering & construction feat. Booked well in advance to ensure seating on the dome car with dining car lunch. Great experience, which nanny, grampa, mom, dad & six year old enjoyed. Unless you have a patient kid who loves train and / or come prepared, the five hour excursion would be too long for most little kids, but there's... More

I am not a train enthusiast, but I really enjoyed the journey. We took the longer trip, which went to Bartlett and took about an hour and three quarters. The commentary was excellent and the commentator pointed out things of interest on each side of the train. It is worth paying the few dollars extra to go first class -... More

Took the train to Bartlett (slightly longer route). Did not pay for first class and 8 and 4 year old didn't seem to mind at all. Basic snacks available on the train as well as restrooms. Ticket puncher on our train was very friendly.

This was a nice break from the usual lunch. The service was great. The food was good. You get to see nature and areas you could only see if you were a hiker. Well worth the time.
