My family and I rode the Pumpkin Patch Train. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and everyone was so accommodating! We took our 10 year old granddaughter and our 2 year old grandson. They both enjoyed it so much. I am handicapped and use a walker and was able to walk easily to the train and the conductor put my walker on the train and returned it to me when I got off. The train took us to the pumpkin patch where the kids got their pumpkins, cookies and drinks. There is a nice little gift shop where they were able to get Everett Railroad sweatshirts and they sell roasted nuts as your walking to the train. We can’t wait to go back for another ride!

What a great trip. The train is beautiful and well taken care of. The journey was scenic and the staff are all so friendly and thoughtful! I took my 2 train loving toddlers and they enjoyed it so much. You can walk around on the train so you don't have to worry about kids getting stir crazy. A great experience. We've gone twice now and we will go again for sure! Everyone loved it.

We took our kids on The Santa Express. It was a great experience and enjoyable atmosphere. Lots of helpful, smiling staff and Santa was great too. Free hot chocolate and cookies to enjoy on the train was a bonus! A professional photographer took pictures of each group and offered prints for sale at the end. We all had a nice time!

Our trip consisted of constant loud screeching noises from the old train cars rubbing against each other non-stop. You couldn't talk with anyone, it gave us all headaches. The views along the way are just sad. You can't even see the beauty of the mountains, our drive there was way more scenic. If you're looking for a torturous train trip instead of a place that cares about your experience, then this is the place for you. I would highly recommend going somewhere where they actually care about your experience you're paying for. I recommend mountainrailwv or Cuyahoga RR. The views are to die for, the customer service is just what you'd expect for am experience of a "train ride of old."
If you need customer support on the phone- you are yelled at and told we don't care and we absolutely give no refunds. Buyer beware.

I bought tickets for the Santa train. The day we were supposed to go there was a winter storm. The highway I would have to take was closed to tier 1, 2, and 3 vehicles at the time we would have had to leave. It was still open to cars but the 2 inches of ice we had at my house under the snow and the restrictions on the highway made me feel it was unsafe to drive in. Especially as the wintery conditions would be continuing through the night and we were under a warning until the next morning. I called to ask about a refund telling them that my local snow plow driver had told me they were probably going to close roads and was told that unless the train doesn't run they would not offer one.

I understand not refunding in cases where people just change their minds or what have you, but I feel dangerous driving conditions should be an exception. Penn State closed as well as numerous businesses in my town (including the place I work at). My daughter and I were both super excited about riding the train and were upset we couldn't go. If the situation had been handled differently on their part I may have considered purchasing tickets at a later date when weather conditions wouldn't prevent me from traveling there.

Train was really great- steam engines are well worth preserving. Getting tickets on line was easy to do. Train ride was very well organized. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The Ice Cream Special was fun with ice cream served at the halfway point at Roaring Spring Depot. The train cars were well preserved and clean.
My only idea to improve would be to have the trip narrated. It would be great for someone to be talking about the engine, the departure town history and a few stories about the route, including info on the roaring spring area history. There is not a lot of great scenery along the way, so a good humorous speaker would be a great addition.

We rode the train to the Morrison Cove Ag Parade June 29. The train left on time. The cars were clean and beautifully restored. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. They brought cold bottled water to the seats for those who wanted to purchase it for only $1. The scenery between Roaring Spring and Martinsburg was truly breathtaking. The RR arranged for bleachers for us to watch the parade from. We also enjoyed free pizza at the parade the RR arranged for. The return trip left on time and arrived back at Hollidaysburg ahead of schedule.

As an old rail buff I like the steam engines of yester years and very nostalgic to me. We went for a wedding in Altoona, PA and found out about the operation of this last weekend. It is a short 1 hr round trip ride but wonderful experience specially if you do not want to spend too much time. There are lot of good photographing opportunities of the engine. The trail is similar to the first third of the Durango-Silverton or any West Virginia (Cass/ Greenbrier ) type. The Crew is wonderful and so are the support staff.
If you are from any of the east cost area looking for a short break with children or quite time alone at a value price this may be your quick get away.

The train was beautiful and wonderfully restored. The ride was short, just enough to give the kids a ride on a steam train, grab a pumpkin, some cider and cookies and get back to the car before the baby got fussy or the youngest got tired. Very good value overall.

Since we cancelled our beach trip,we decided to go on little trips for my birthday and this was one of them. It was our 1st time and was very nice and enjoyable with a little surprise ice cream treat when we stopped on the way back on the 3 hour trip.The staff was nice and answered all my questions and let people freely walk around the cars for the whole trip. We would like to go back again for the fall trip.
