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.

This was a lot of fun. We got the parlor car which is worth the extra if you don't have small kids. It's a 4 hr ride so I imagine the cars with small kids could get pretty noisy. Lunch is served on the way to the Falls. It's a cold sandwich buffet but is very good. Dessert on the... More

We did an afternoon trip on the New Tygart Flyer (11 AM - 3 PM) with the lunch buffet included. We decided on this since we could not book a trip on the evening dinner train (sold out / suggest booking two months or more in advance since it apparently fills up fast in the Parlor Car although "regular" seeing...

My boyfriend my kids and myself absolutely loved the train ride. My children are young but they had an amazing time. We will definitely be visiting again.

We took off just on a sightseeing tour and ended up at the train station. The ride was great...lots of scenery, and at the falls plenty of time to look around and see what is there. Lunch was good and plentiful. Would recommend!

At first I was skeptical after reading reviews that the Cass trains were more scenic. The views on this trsin were enjoyable. The sandwhich buffet was yummy. It was build your own sandwhich, so being vegetarian i had cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, mustard and mayonaise and loved my sandwhich.

Fantastic, we (Pap, Nan, Grandson13, granddaughter 11) all enjoyed the train ride and loved getting out at the Cheat Falls walking around before boarding train again. It was relaxing and great experience for all of us. Only one thing was the lunch was just Ok. So glad we did this trip
