This could be a great trip if u 90 years old and just sit for 4 hours creeping at woods and river. It is not explained well about stops. None are announced during trip. There were several passengers missed stops for excursions they paid. Plus,...More

The staff is very nice. The scenery on train ride itself is nice. However several cars on the train were hot and stuffy and therefore quite uncomfortable on a 93-degree day. I specifically planned to ride on a hot day to stay cool and enjoy...More

What a fun way to spend a Saturday morning. What boy (or girl) - young or old - doesn’t enjoy a train? It was kind of a throwback to old times when the train was a significant form of transportation. Trainmen recreate the nostalgic feel,...More

A friend and I signed up for the Evening Ride on the Rails as a last-minute idea for an interesting night out. At $15 it seemed like a reasonable price to take a ride. The concession stand was a little lacking, but the prices were...More
