It was an incredible experience with the family. It was extremely hot in the coach car. It's a good thing there's an open car. I would recommend this to friends and family but not the coach on hot summer days.

Fun time with friends on the railroad. Nice to see it being fixed up at the station. Nice open car and comfortable seating inside too.

Enjoyed our brunch, but the ride wasn’t anything special. Would have been better if someone gave a little history of the railroad cars, etc trip. Good for a one time ride or if you have kids who like trains.More

We enjoyed the 2 hr round trip ride. I recommend to do the dining car option on your next trip. The ride was very informative and relaxing inspite of the rainy weekend.
