Not a bad way to spend the afternoon taking in the West Virginia's beautiful outdoors. Lunch was simple deli sandwiches with all the condiments, an array of salads and chips were also included. On the ride back you can enjoy a small (child size) strawberry shortcake. Plenty of drinks are included in the price, but wine is extra. Be careful... More

We had lunch buffet on the train .The food was good the only drawback was the time it tool to serve a full coach of folks. the ride up to the falls was exciting with comedy by host an extra at the expense of our poor server. Narration about the run was informative with enough history for those of us... More

First time on the train. We took the 4 hr ride that included the buffet. We enjoyed it tremendously. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. The host and his wife where extremely nice. They even sang. His wife has a incredible voice. I even asked if she ever recorded a cd. I would have bought one if she had. What a... More

I've always had a fascination with trains since I was a child and on this vacation, we were able to experience a fun filled 4 HR round trip ride through the mountains of West Virginia, on the New Tygert Flier. They offer a 30-40 min layover at the High Falls of Cheat to stretch your legs and enjoy the incredible... More

We booked a trip on the New Tygart Flyer; a 4 hour round trip train ride from Elkins, WV depot to the falls and back. A buffet style cold sandwich lunch was included in the price. We had loads of fun and the scenery was beautiful. When we arrived at the falls we were able to get off the train... More

The trip was definitely 1st class. It is worth the extra money for the parlor car. Lunch buffet was good. The dessert was great. Free parking. Scenery was beautiful. The falls were pretty. Great staff. Wonderful trip. staff.

Train ride was good and service was great in the Parlor car. Overall, not a bad ride, but a bit redundant. You need to sit on the drivers side of the car to get the best view. After a while however, you can only see so many trees, side streets, trailer parks, etc.. Late into the trip to the falls... More

We did the afternoon train. From booking to actual ride, the staff is excellent. We were lucky enough to have nice weather which is definitely a plus. Being able to get off and walk down to the falls really breaks the trip off nicely. Personally, I would like to see a little more variety in the lunch choices.

My husband & I had been looking for a train adventure. A friend recommended this one and we were very happy with it! Elkins, WV was easy to get to and is a lovely little town. Parking was free and close to the station. The folks working at the station were super friendly and helpful. There is a little gift... More

One of the best train rides I have experienced. Very scenic and a very nice train. Lunch on the train was wonderful and the staff were great. Awesome trip. Can't wait to try out the dinner train next time.
