We were celebrating a birthday with a novel idea to take the Green Mountain Dinner Train. We had a lovely experience, supported by good service, great scenery and really good food. The 3 hour round trip was just right.

Went with a group this week. Food was good, but the car was too hot. A/C wasn't working properly and we had to open windows. Everyone was very nice, but wouldn't do again in summer. Trip was spoiled by the unco.fortable temperature.
