This was soooo much fun! My husband was going to be traveling on Valentine's Day so I wanted to do something different and surprise him. He was surprised and the ride was fun. This particular Saturday was a Wild West theme show, which was kind of corny but cute. The cast were all volunteers which made it sooo much cuter!... More

My four year old really wanted to ride a train for her birthday. Luckily a friend recommended St. Mary's Railway to us. They had a Wild West theme the weekend we went. It was a thirty minute ride out and thirty minutes back. At the halfway point the staff put on a showdown. It was fun to watch but they... More

What a wonderful day we had today playing tourist in our hometown. We had the good fortune to take a ride on the Wild West Express train and what fun we had. Our group ranged in age from 2-65 and everyone had a great time. This trip brought back memories of when I was young and we used to visit... More

I was expecting a little more than what there was. I just felt for the money it was rather lame. I did enjoy the ride, even tho it was rather short. They say the Christmas Train is better. Miht have to try it sometime.

Volunteer actors reenact skits for the hour and one half ride. Great weekend adventure for parents or grandparents and kids. Pets not allowed. We were going to leave our dog in car with open windows. One of the staff volunteered to watch her, as she cares for rescue dogs. She reluctantly accepted a tip towards her work.

If you haven't been to St. Marys Railroad, then you missing out on a great adventure! We had a great time visiting and riding up and down the track to visit Santa and his friends. The crew and characters on board the train were fun and entertaining with stories, jokes and songs. We enjoyed the model train exhibit inside the... More

I went with my 5 year old and infant. We did the Halloween express at 10 am. Its a nice little ride with music, people in costumes, jokes and a little drama scene halfway. Then back at the station there is a tiny museum with little trains going around on tracks and a concession stand. Also there were a few... More

The St. Mary's railroad ride is a fun activity for the family with young children. If you plan to go you MUST book early as it sells out quickly. We entered the station to pick up our tickets. Inside you will see the train museum depicting the era of the railroad in south Georgia. There are two glass enclosed model... More
