Ride the Train

45 minute ride to Paradise and back on a steam train. Tried the dining car. Food was good but hard to hear the conductor. People are super nice and friendly.

Went for the Bonnie and Clyde railroad robbery trip. It was OK. Actors were pretty good. Children would enjoy it more. I've now done it once., which was enough..

My wife and I took our 2 daughters here during our spring vacation. We all enjoyed ourselves. Loved the train we rode on and enjoyed our conductor who knew so much about the train and the area. Prices are reasonable and your money goes towards the RR itself. Definitely stop in if you are in the area! :)

My family has done this train ride many times. I have done the train ride, both as a child and as an adult and it is definitely something all ages would enjoy this train ride. The ride isn't too long and it isn't too short either.

This was our 1st time - 2 adults, 1 14yr old & 1 9yr old. We all four LOVED it! The village was really cute with all of the shops and photo opps. We rode in the coach car and it was totally worth it. We rode through beautiful farmland and were told interesting facts about different places along the... More

Our family, four adults and two young children, rode in one of the coach cars--comfortable and beautifully restored. The ride is through a beautiful area and includes interesting commentary.

This is a fun trip on the largest privately owned track in the country. The trip goes through Amish country and they switch the engine to the other side of the train to go back when they hit Amtrak tracks. You can get off at a picnic ground and they will get you later in the day if you want.... More

A very pleasant train ride through beautiful Lancaster county. We rode in the warmer months but I am intrigued by the coal stoves on board and would love to do a a winter ride some time.
