Was amazing! This was our 2nd time on the train, was super fun. Views are unforgettable, volunteers were terrific! Be sure to bring cash for the fruit stand at the turn around point and for snacks on the train.

Being a retired rail worker, steam trains are near to my heart. This ride is on the the old Kettle Valley Roadbed and indeed travels a small portion of the trackage. During the time we were there the train ran twice daily. The train has...More

This is a very informative 1.5 hours steam train ride held on Saturday, Sunday & Monday in the summer months. The commentary is good and clear and they have a banjo playing entertainer on board to get everyone in the mood. They also have "train...More

This was a good way to spend 90 minutes of the day before it got too warm in the valley (we went in the morning). If you really enjoy trains, spending time later in your day tracking it down and seeing it from the ground...More

Try to get seats on the left side as the views are best. Takes 90 min. Only 6 km. of track with a 30 min. stop (they could skip this long stop!). Beautiful scenery. Conductor very informative. Seats comfortable in the coach car.

Choo choo! This was an awesome way to spend the afternoon. The engine is cool, the sounds relaxing and the views quite nice. Also, the banjo player was a first class entertainer. Loved it.
